LabView Function Guide

Hi,

 

I am a student that is new to LabView and I was wondering if there was a function guide or something from the Control Panel/Function Panel? Like a place that shows the images of each function, what it does, and where it can be found.

 

Thank you!

Yes

The LabVIEW Help file does just exactly that

Ctrl+H turns on/off the context help, which updates as you move your mouse over a function.

You may also benefit from reconfiguring your development environment to provide labels for the palette menu items.  Specifically, setting it to display both icons and text descriptions of each function in the palette.
Tools >> Options >> Controls/Functions Palettes

At some point, you'll tire of searching through all the palettes for the functions you need, and hopefully you'll begin remembering what they're called.  Enter:  Quickdrop!  
With the block diagram open, press Ctrl+Space.  This will summon a dialog that will allow you to drop VIs onto your block diagram without hunting through palettes and subpalettes.
