LabVIEW Coding Challenge

Hampton Roads User Group - As I mentioned in our last meeting, we will start to include a LabVIEW code challenge into our user group meetings.  This will give us an way to integrate writing a short LabVIEW VI and interactively learning how others use different algorithms to solve the same challenge.  Our first challenge is the following:

  • Create a VI that counts the number of occurrences of each character in a block of text and generate a histogram display of the counts. Ignore case and only count alphabetic characters (i.e. 'a' through 'z').

Look forward to seeing you in early December.

Re: LabVIEW Coding Challenge

Dorjbat - This is very similar to how I implemented it.  Let's wait until after the meeting to post these on the discussion forum.  I'd like to review everyone's ideas during the meeting and then everyone can post their solution.  Look forward to seeing you in a few weeks!

Re: LabVIEW Coding Challenge

Brian, would you prefer we email these to you ahead of time or just bring them in on a flash drive or something?

Re: LabVIEW Coding Challenge

Can we use third-party code (OpenG, MGI, etc.) or does it have to be strictly from the LV source distribution?

Re: LabVIEW Coding Challenge

NoNoise - The goal of the coding challenges is to foster LabVIEW knowlege, so please use LabVIEW.  If you'd like to do a second example of calling external code from LabVIEW, you may, but the majority of the algorithm should still be in LabVIEW.
