Creating a NI-DAQmx Task, Channel, or Scale in a Project
To create a NI-DAQmx task, channel, or scale in a LabVIEW project, complete the following steps:
- Click Empty Project in the Getting Started window. The Project Explorer window opens.
- Right-click My Computer in the project tree.
- Select New, then NI-DAQmx Task, NI-DAQmx Channel, or NI-DAQmx Scale. The DAQ Assistant opens.
- Create the NI-DAQmx task, channel, or scale. Refer to the DAQ Assistant Help.
After the task, channel, or scale is created, you can drag and drop it onto either the front panel or block diagram for use in a VI.
|Note If you create a task, channel, or scale in a project with the same name as a task, channel, or scale in MAX, the project-based object takes priority. The MAX task, channel, or scale is disabled.|
