nxt infrared sensor output



I am working on a project that involves the lego nxt mindstorm. In my labview block diagram, I have the nxt infrared sensor connected to a waveform output. That is, a waveform is displayed according to the movement of the robot and the infrared sensor.


I am writing to find out if it is possible to make the output numbers instead of a waveform. Basically, I don't want it to draw a graph, I want to read the output as numbers. Better yet, it could also draw the graph but I also want to be able to get the numbers. 


What function do i use? 


Any suggestion is definitely appreciated.


Thank you.

Hi olams,


You should be able to right-click on the output terminal and select Create»Indicator.  It sounds like this waveform graph is not the standard output for that VI, so creating an indicator should make a numeric output.  Thanks.
