Using C++ in a CIN & outputting the results using an intensity graph

"As it stands, I have a program that creates 4 files of separate 41x41 matrices. I would like to put the C++ code into LabVIEW to illustrate real time effects using an intensity graph. How do I link my *.cpp file to the intensity graph?"

I'm not sure what you mean by link. If the data is already written to
file, one option is to read it in using file I/O. I suspect what you
are looking for is a way to invoke the C++ code from LV. The most
obvious option is to build a DLL from the C++ code, if it isn't already,
and use the Call Library Function to call the DLL. You can pass a
pointer to the DLL and have it filled in. Other options are ActiveX,
TCP, building the DLL from LV, etc.
