The graphical nature of LabVIEW makes it ideal for test and measurement applications and results in significant productivity improvements over conventional programming languages. However, comprehensive treatments of the more advanced topics have been scattered and difficult to find-until now. LabVIEW Advanced Programming Techniques offers in-depth coverage of the subjects that move you to the next level of programming -the level that allows full exploitation of LabVIEW's power and utility. These topics include: Application structure: Discover a three-tiered architecture that results in robust, flexible, and easy to maintain code. State machines: Get extensive coverage of several types of state machines-arguably the most useful programming tool available. Exception Handling: Help detect, process, and resolve exceptions in your code. Instrument Drivers: See the value drivers bring to code readability and maintenance -Learn the techniques for constructing reusable drivers. Multi-threading: Learn how to look at a LabVIEW code diagram, determine which sections will execute on which thread of execution, and then optimize the performance of the application. Active X: Gain the background needed to build your own Active X controls to use in LabVIEW. Object Oriented Technologies: Get a clear description of object analysis and see examples of how it can apply to LabVIEW applications.

This is for the professional programmer. Well-known author Gary Johnson teaches LabVIEW to everybody! Blessed by National Instruments, the developers of LabVIEW. Step-by-step information to fully network LabVIEW. CD of virtual instruments and tools. Let the LabVIEW experts show you how to leverage the power of the world's fastest-growing graphical programming platform! In the test and measurement market, LabVIEW has become the dominant platform for graphical programming on both PCs and Macintoshes, as well as Sun and HP workstations. Advances in the LabVIEW development and runtime environments have made it increasingly competitive with textual languages like C--even in applications outside its traditional instrumentation market. Still, there hasn't been a resource--written by top experts--that shows advanced users, professional developers, and computer-scientists how to make the most of LabVIEW and its popular C language... until now. Gary Johnson's LabVIEW Power Programming brings together some of the world's foremost LabVIEW authorities, who explore such critically important topics as software quality assurance, format software engineering methods, networking, and other advanced techniques that simply aren't covered anywhere else. Written by a "Who's Who of LabVIEW," this one-of-a-kind, advanced LabVIEW programming book features: everything you need to know to fully network LabVIEW; in-depth discussions of interapplication communication and calls to external code; a LabVIEW software quality assurance (SQA) guide and toolkit; examination of mathematics, simulation, and signal processing issues. The book comes with a CD-ROM that provides numerous "virtual instruments" written in software. What's more, you'll also find a wide variety of LabVIEW programming tools and utilities--all expressly designed to boost the productivity of advanced LabVIEW users
