I have made a program using the Queued message handler (QMH) based on the continuous measurement and logging example shipped with LabVIEW 2013.
I want to view and control this program by using the Data dashboard with web services (for Ipad). I followed this tutorial;
Using this tutorial I am able to connect my desired controls and indicators to the data dashboard.
But when I am running the data dashboard, it does not interact with the program. If I however run the web resource vi from within the program itself if works.
I have made a dummy vi that just creates a random number and this is working fine, using the Data dashboard web services.
Does anybody know what I am doing wrong?
Solved! Go to Solution.
After I made the executable with the web services I do not see the web service on the data dashboard.
So instead of working with the executable I just right clicked the web service in the project explorer and published the web service, this way I am able to see and connect the indicators and controls to my dashboard.
I`m not entirly sure what you mean.
While building the EXE I have set the port for the web services to 8080.
In the web server configuration I have changed the application web server to port 8080 as well.
But the data dashboard still doesn`t see the web services when I search for port 8080.
I would try setting the Web Server port for the EXE to a different number; something far away from the standard 8080. Then make sure Data Dashboard is targeting the port for your EXE and not your project.
I have never tried setting two Web Servers to run on the same port, but I have had issues with port conflicts (using the same port for the Project and resulting EXE) using VI Server.
I have asked my netadmin to open port 8002 (standard for EXE web server)
I am now able to connect the data dashboard to the EXE.
But my indicators are not updating, I just get an error after a couple of seconds, although they are linked to the web resources VI`s.
I am using an android tablet today if that matters, I get the Ipad back tomorrow.
