You can use LabVIEW to create various types of custom add-ons and plug-ins for NI VeriStand. NI VeriStand installs a full palette of NI VeriStand VIs, as well as the NI VeriStand .NET APIs, both of which are accessible from LabVIEW.

Note  To develop add-ons, you must have matching versions of LabVIEW and NI VeriStand. For example, you must use LabVIEW 2011 to develop add-ons for NI VeriStand 2011.

System Requirements for Common Add-ons

Certain add-ons require additional LabVIEW modules, toolkits, or features not included with the Base Development System, such as the Application Builder. The following table lists common add-ons you can develop using LabVIEW and any additional features they require:

Add-on System Requirements
Custom devices Application Builder
Custom Timing and Sync devices Application Builder
Custom FPGA configuration files and bitfiles Application Builder
Custom Workspace tools NA
Custom Workspace controls and indicators1 NA
Compiled models Application Builder
