Overview The example demonstrates about the Add-On for additional workspace Controls and Indicators
Description: Out of the box, NI VeriStand is supplied with a range of controls and indicators from booleans to graphs to model control. These have been created in LabVIEW before being coded to allow VeriStand to use them and to map their inputs/outputs into the system e.g. to models or data acquisition channels.Having seen the VeriStand Add-On of a library of Silver Workspace Controls, it occurred to me that it could be useful to have a wider range of controls and indicators for NI VeriStand at your fingerips, without having to create the "custom" controls and indicators yourself, so attached is a folder containing a series of 5 additional numeric controls/indicators; and 5 additional boolean controls/indicators.
Additional Numeric include:
Additional Booleans include:
Steps to implement or execute code To implement this example:
Select Screen»Edit Mode to display the Workspace Controls palette and alignment grid.
Click the Workspace Controls palette to expand the palette and view the available control and indicator categories.
Click the plus sign next to the type of workspace object that you would like to place in the NI VeriStand Workspace. This will expand the category and allow you to view the controls or indicators within that directory. An example of this is the Knob which is a type of numeric control and will therefore be listed as "Numeric Control - Knob".
Select the name of a control or indicator and drag it to the alignment grid to add the control/indicator and display the Item Properties dialog box. Use this Item Properties dialog box to configure the control/indicator.
Requirements Software LabVIEW 2012 or compatible NI VeriStand
