Usually, LabVIEW stores the compiled code used to run a VI together with the graphical code of the VI in the same file.

Luckily, there’s an option to separate the compiled code from the graphical source code.Read more »
Using LabVIEW’s VI Scripting features, it is surprisingly easy to create tools that increase development efficiency and enforce coding guidelines. For example, having groups of associated VIs stand out on your block diagrams makes maintenance a lot easier. VI Scripting allows you to add glyphs to VI icons programmatically with very little overhead.Read more »
GDevCon #1 – “An Independent Conference For Graphical Programming” – was the first truly independent, community-run Conference for LabVIEW and Graphical Programming in general. As founding members and participants, it was an incredible experience for us!
