I never noticed this little highly-specialized IMAQ function, even though I've been using IMAQ (and IMAQdx) for about a decade (but never to do something like this ...).


LabVIEW Vision is a fairly complex series of routines that are somewhat difficult to master.  The Vision Assistant is equivalent to an advanced Express VI that "does some of the thinking for you" (with all of the limitations that implies).  If you have some experience with using IMAQ and IMAQdx (to acquire the images), you can use the low-level VIs (such as IMAQ Read LCD and IMAQ Get LCD ROI, which assumes you are familiar with ROIs and how to work with and manipulate them) to write the underlying code that will be buried inside the Vision Assistant ...
