Display Date & Time

Solved!

I would like to be able to add a date & time display to the screen as to be able to have it shown in the screenshot function.  

How can this be done? I do not have LabVIEW to make a vi.

Try this. Unzip the file and copy the DateTimeChannel folder to C:\Users\Public\Documents\National Instruments\FlexLogger\Plugins\IOPlugins

Then launch FlexLogger and , choose Add channels>>Plug-in from the menu:

The default formatting for the date/time is %c which uses the system setting. Here are the other formatting options you can use:

You can then add a "Text Box Indicator" to your screen tab and associate the value with the string channel:

Brad,

 

I was wondering if I could get in touch with you regarding the source code for this plugin? I am relatively new to the forums and can't seem to send a private message to ask about this. Thanks!
