How to convert variables on program to shared variables?

Hi I want the controls and indicators of an already existing programs to be available on the Data Dashboard of a tablet/phone. What are the steps to follow if I want to convert them into shared variables so that I can send them to the dashboard. I just found results on how to create new shared variables.


Also the existing program is a state machine. So will the variables be available on the dashboard simulteneously or is it possible to visualise the controls in the form of multiples tabs on Dashboard, like it is on the original program?

I don't know of any way to convert the controls to shared variables. You're going to have to create the shared variables fresh and wire them up in a way that makes sense for your application.


As for tabs...kind of. Each dashboard can be configured to have different screens and you can move between them. This is probably the guide you want to follow:
