I am happy that LabVIEW supports Python code with the Python Nodes. But it is difficult to debug errors. A console showing the output of the Python Scripts would be handy.
Enthought's Python Integration Toolkit had this function so I guess it shouldn't be a big thing to add?
Same problem! Haven't you get an answer for this topic?

This is the idea exchange and the above post is an idea for future improvements, not to solve a problem or get answers. If you want this idea to be considered, you should vote for it (click on the star in the upper left).
I'd like to get your feedback on an unpublished feature that's in LabVIEW 2018 and later. If you edit your INI file to contain "ShowConsoleForPythonNode=TRUE" then a window will open when a Python Node executes to show the output from Python. Would this functionality meet your debugging needs?
Wow thank you Christina this very well,
this would have saved me so much trouble a year ago 😄
But still VERY usefull!!
Any other unpublished features you would like to share?
Edit: The Python connection crashes when I close the console output window. But I guess that this is a known issue.
