This VI will get a screenshot of the Front Panel and add it to a Microsoft Word Document created every time you select "Take a Screenshot."



In this VI we are usng the Report Generation Toolkit to take a capture of the Front Panel and send it to a word document.  A new Word document with an image of the Front Panel at that time is created whenever you hit the Boolean "Take Screenshot." In order to display data in this example we are generating random data and displaying it to a Waveform Chart.
