This example demonstrates how to download an image from a website and show it on the Frontpanel.
It is sometimes handy to show an image from a website on the Frontpanel. To do so, you need to download the image from the website and show it in a LabVIEW picture control. There is no out-of-the-box function for this use case, so you have to implement the function by yourself.
You can use the DataSocket Read.vi or the HTTP VIs to download the image. This example use the HTTP VIs, because this VIs can store the image into a file without additional VI calls.
