Tech Preview: LabVIEW NXG 2.0

NIWeek 2017 marked the release of LabVIEW NXG 1.0. It's pretty awesome, but we’re already hard at work on the next release due out at the end of this year. We’re making a lot of investments in features like LabVIEW classes, libraries, type definitions and incorporating the feedback we’ve heard over the years from you, our faithful users.

 

In fact, a beta of LabVIEW NXG 2.0 is available right now at ni.com/techpreview. Here’s what you can expect:

 

SystemDesigner

 

Discover, configure and document your hardware with this visual interface. Discover connected hardware or build it from scratch using the entire product catalog.

 

NI Package Manager (NIPM)

 

Our new software delivery experience that simplifies driver discovery and installation, dependency management, and software installation. Packages will eventually be how all of our software and drivers are distributed – even add-ons, toolkits and instrument drivers.

 

Improved Libraries

 

We’re giving you absolute control over keeping your code organized and scalable. Most importantly: no more dependency conflicts. VIs don’t directly reference dependencies – instead, they defer to the project as a single source of truth.

 

Support for TestStand

 

LabVIEW NXG 2.0 will have classes, it’ll have application builder, it’ll support the majority of our PXI platform...AND it’ll work with TestStand 2017.

 

WebVIs

 

We know that it’s increasingly important to easily update the software on these systems and remotely monitor them. Our goal is to empower you to build rich web-based measurement interfaces using standard technologies without hiring web developer.

 

There’s a lot coming in the next version of LabVIEW NXG and many of the technologies can be incorporated into any existing system right away.

Hi

 

Is it possible to import a web service in LabVIEW NXG like in LabVIEW Web UI Builder?

I attended the Manchester LabVIEW Developer Day yesterday and saw a preview of NGX V1 & V2, some great features are available including ZOOM !!!!
Main complaint - nothing for MAC OSX. As ever, the poor cousins.

Hi Suneel,

 

Thank you for your question. We do not have a Web Service import utility for WebVIs yet - it is something we are considering. We do have HTTP Client APIs in the palette which enable you to call any web service.

 

Best,

Regarding the development of web based applications, how are the interfaces being created? 

 

Is this going to be another SilverLight application or will the interfaces be produced in a more friendly/expandable hmtl/jquery format? 

 

Cheers,

Hi
I wanted to test the examples of webvi.io and received the following error message.

Hi RoboG,

I apologize for the late response. The WebVIs feature included in the LabVIEW NXG 2.0 beta is based on industry standard technologies for the creation of high-performance engineering user interfaces. WebVIs automatically generate HTML code and allow easy integration of CSS and JavaScripts. This code is open and available for users to modify and create advance web-based user interfaces. Additionally, communications between systems and user interfaces are implemented through APIs that use AMQP, HTTP, and WebSockets.

Hi Claudio,

 

I'm not entirely sure from the German version what the problem is. Are you opening the examples in the latest built? Please post your question inside of the community forum for our engineers to take a look.

 

Thanks!

@ClaudioHaeusermann If you are opening the examples in NXG 2.0 Tech Preview you have to use the labview-nxg-beta2 branch available here: https://github.com/ni/webvi-examples/tree/labview-nxg-beta2

Sorry, guys.
I really downloaded the wrong package. Now it works out so far.

Hi Milan,

 

The examples found at https://github.com/ni/webvi-examples/tree/labview-nxg-beta2 don't appear to contain the "UtilizeSkylineDataServices." example.  Do you know where I can find this example for the NXG 2.0 Tech Preview install?

 

Thanks,

Luke

Hi Luke, 

 

Thank example is not available in that branch because the Skyline APIs used we're not yet available to ship in the Beta. Let us know if you have any follow up questions. 

 

Cheers,
