Owning Palette: Connectivity VIs and Functions

Requires: Base Development System. This topic might not match its corresponding palette in LabVIEW depending on your operating system, licensed product(s), and target.

Use the Libraries & Executables VIs and functions to call code from libraries, such as dynamic link libraries (DLLs); to manipulate LabVIEW data for use in other applications; and to call code written in text-based programming languages.

Palette ObjectDescription
Call Library Function NodeCalls a DLL or shared library function directly.
System ExecExecutes a system command. Use the System Exec VI to execute or launch other Windows–based applications, command-line applications, (Windows) batch files, or (Mac OS X and Linux) script files from within VIs. With the System Exec VI, you can include any parameters within your command string that the executing command supports.

Pipes VIsUse the Pipes VIs to pass data between applications on Linux. Pipes VIs simplify process synchronization by allowing separate processes to communicate with each other.
