To view an application or front panel remotely using a Web browser, you must first configure the server. Complete the following steps to configure the server so a client computer can view an application front panel remotely using a browser.
|Tip For VIs that will be viewed or controlled remotely, create as small front panels as possible. The Web Server uses more system resources to load and display large front panel images than small front panel images, which can slow the execution of the VI itself.|
You also can change the WIDTH and HEIGHT parameters of the <OBJECT> and <EMBED> tags to customize the application or front panel appearance in the client browser.
Complete the following steps if you are on a client computer and do not have LabVIEW installed but want to view a front panel remotely using a browser.
|Note When you view a front panel remotely from a browser, the application or VI you want to view must be running on the server computer.|
To completely close the connection to the Web Server running on the server computer, click the close glyph on the browser window border.
You also can use the Application methods to open a connection and request control of a remote front panel programmatically.
