Solved! Go to Solution.
This is a VERY basic question. I realize you're new to LabVIEW but please do even just a little research before falling back on a forum to get answers.
Drop a time stamp indicator down and wire the Get Date/Time VI to it. That's it. If you don't want to see the date right-click and go to the Display Format properties. You can also resize and color it to make it pretty. Have fun.
Adding to the great answers above: If you wish to create an analog clock face for your front panel you can work through the following example code:
It is also noteworthy that within the LabVIEW community "Real Time" usually refers to a deterministic operating system (RTOS) or code running on an RTOS. More information can be found below
Pretty cool Tim. Here's an old one I had floating around that has a neat wooden face and the code is really simple. It's in LV10.
