I'm excited to finally be able to tell you all about the project I've been working on since NIWeek. Thanks to the success of the iPad in the last two years tablets have become very common. They're more convenient in many cases than laptops, and an increasing number of people are carrying iPads or other tablets around instead of a full blown computer. You can do a lot of things with a tablet, but there are still some gaps, and access to your LabVIEW applications has been one of those gaps until now.

Data Dashboard for LabVIEW is a FREE tablet application which gives you a simple, intuitive interface to quickly connect to and display data from a network published shared variable and/or LabVIEW web service. If your application publishes useful data through either of those mechanisms then you can show it on a tablet from anywhere. Data Dashboard supports scalar integer and floating point numeric, boolean, and string data types and four controls: text, chart, gauge, and LED. You can connect to up to 6 variables/web services at a time on a single page, and you can have multiple pages to connect to different sets of data.

Data Dashboard is available in the iOS app store (for iPad only) and the Android Market (for Android 2.3+ tablets, not phones). Also coming soon to the Amazon App Store.

You can read more about the application here:

Please give it a try and let me know what you think.

"No supported variables at this location"
Why

I can visit the server 192.168.1.100, and found the variable A and System.
Click A, and "No supported variables at this location."

Howdy! I'm glad to see you're trying out the app.

When you browse for variables in Data Dashboard it will only show variables which are supported. The list of supported types is here:
http://digital.ni.co...DE?OpenDocument

There's also a troubleshooting page with useful links here:
https://decibel.ni.c.../docs/DOC-19388

Lastly, keep in mind that the application does not support authentication. If you need to secure your variables then we suggest using VPN.

If you go through the documents above and still can't figure out what's wrong then please visit our official support forum for this product here:
