Revive CWGraph3D

Status: New
by Member FoxGrove on ‎03-27-2014 11:40 AM

We are limping along on the ancient components works 3D graph that does suface plots. Any plans to move it out of the 90s?

I would like to see the following methods from LabWindows/CVI and Labview added to the Measurement Studio TDMS. The "Create Linear Scaling Info" would be the most useful to me when converting from other data formats to TDMS. I really like being able to keep unscaled data with the scale factors and having the data automatically scaled when reading with TDMS libraries/dlls.

 

Methods from LabWindows/CVI API

Advanced Data Scaling  
Create Linear Scaling Info TDMS_CreateLinearScalingInfo
Create Polynomial Scaling Info TDMS_CreatePolynomialScalingInfo
Create Thermocouple Scaling Info TDMS_CreateThermocoupleScalingInfo
Create RTD Scaling Info TDMS_CreateRTDScalingInfo
Create Table Scaling Info TDMS_CreateTableScalingInfo
Create Strain Scaling Info TDMS_CreateStrainGageScalingInfo
Create Thermistor Scaling Info TDMS_CreateThermistorScalingInfo
Create Reciprocal Scaling Info TDMS_CreateReciprocalScalingInfo

Distributing applications via ClickOnce is a fast and easy way to deploy applications to clients all over.  However, a "bootstrapper" (http://digital.ni.com/public.nsf/allkb/148A815DF9379F8786257560005DB06A) is needed to install the required MStudio files into the GAC.  Please provide a working example for VisualStudio 2012/2013 of a bootstrapper that does this, so we can just deploy the application and updates via ClickOnce.

Update the 3D Graph Control

Status: New

The 3D Chart control needs to be updated to the .Net platform.  In addition it would be nice to have the waterfall functionality included in Labview.

Vertical graph / chart control

Status: New
by Member HotRod66 on ‎11-13-2013 10:34 AM

Log charts such as the ones pictured in the screenshot I attached are common in the oil industry. Many oils companies use NI equipment and write LabView and Measurement studio based software. The collected data is often plotted in log charts. It would be nice if NI would consider offering a vertical graph control in both Measurement Studio and the LabView products.

CAN,XNET Support

Status: New
by Member GURO on ‎08-17-2012 10:26 AM

Hello, I would like to have the NI-CAN, NI-XNETsupport integrated into the next version of NI Measurement Studio.

Why this kind of devices only have an old style C Library? Could be more useful to have classes on C++ and .NET

 

Best regards

Merge Module Utility

Status: New
by Member Jack._W on ‎08-13-2012 03:18 AM

Can I suggest it's time NI add some utility to work out which merge modules are needed. I can often spend a lot of time trying to deploy NI projects.

I have a project file using .Net 4 (VS2010, properly update) which I opened in VS2013, upon opening with no warning all NI license.licx lines were removed with no warning whatsover.

 

This should never happen, if something is going to be changed the user should be informed what is happening, especially if it's going to break a build.

Graph axis caption orientation.

Status: New
by Member IDCDeveloper on ‎06-13-2012 11:50 AM

Hi, NI team.
I was adviced to share my idea here ( actually it was something I needed, not idea :smileyhappy: ).
I have Waveform graph control in my application. There are two axes: vertical and horizontal. The plots I show on the graph have different units by vertical axis, so I decided to show those units as a caption of vertical axis. However I wasn't able to give this caption appropriate view and was forced to use label control. The problem with the caption of vertical axis is that it is oriented vertically and you can only change text direction between top-to-down and down-to-top. What I was looking for is a normal orientation from-left-to-right.

 

May be someone else will use this feature in future :smileyhappy:
Regards

Hello,
 
I would like to have a possibility to read data from Network Variables by using Windows 8 Metro applications running in Tablets and Windows phones. It would be very good, if I can implement the applications by using the next Measurement Studio release. Thanks in advance. :smileyhappy:

Reintroduce PID support to C++ and .NET

I'd like to take advantage of Windows Presentation Foundation as the user interface for our data acquisition software.   I'd like to see WPF graphs, switches, gauges, etc.  with the ability to add the controls to XAML, databind, etc.

(Also wondering what happened to the beta version of Visual Studio 2012??)

Ability to put NI objects in the Viewport3d

Status: New

The ability to make 3d views of control would be very impressive.

I am often adding the glue code to make it work like LabVIEW. I guess I should make my own custom control but it would be better if there was something I could use off the shelf.

Thin out data

Status: New
by Member Marrocco on ‎11-20-2013 04:22 AM

Plotting a big array of sample uses quite some time in the current version. I think this comes from Measurement Studio drawing a line explicitly between each two samples. However, in case of millions of samples, many of those lines will cover only one single pixel.

 

Instead of drawing all lines, it would be possible to sample the data at a rate where each sample matches just one pixel in the input axis. In order to not loose peaks, the sampling needs to do a min/max calculation and draw two lines for the minima and maxima. A shade could be used between the two curves. When zooming, the sampling needs to be repeated.

 

This feature would not only save much performance for big data (I think), it can also help to improve clarity of the graph, p.e. in case of noisy signals.

 

While it's great that Measurement Studio offers all capabilities for us to implement this functionality ourselves, such a feature could be of interest for many users.

 

Of course, this idea is not my intellectual property. It's a feature already implemented in other products.

Debian and Raspberrypi Support

With respect to Ubuntu's popularity and RaspberryPi's accessbility, are there any plans to support either of these two platforms?

NI-VISA Light

Status: New
by Active Participant Curt_C on ‎09-19-2012 11:49 AM

Hi,

 

I'd like to see some of the functionality contained in NI-VISA without having to install VISA on my system, but just set a reference to the library in my project. I'd just like to access devices/instrumentation through the serial port or usb without needing admin rights on every machine the runs the application.

Microsofts serial class has limited functionality. I like the reliability that comes with Visa.
