Using front panel data binding to control a front panel control remotely through the Shared Variable Engine provides faster and more reliable data transmission than dstp as well as seamless connections to shared variables and NI Publish-Subscribe Protocol (NI-PSP) data items.
Enabling an opc, ftp, or http connection for a control on Windows, or a dstp or file connection for a control on all LabVIEW-supported platforms lets a control write and read live data through the DataSocket Server, and on Windows, through an OPC server, FTP server, or Web server. Do not enable a connection for a control if you want to establish or save the URL for the object but not write or read data.
Complete the following steps to enable a control for an opc, ftp, or http connection on Windows, or a dstp or file connection on all LabVIEW-supported platforms.
|Note You cannot create front panel data connections for type definitions.|
