So, according to this NI document
It should be possible to link a .chm file into your executable so that a user can choose Help > Help for This VI. Well, I followed the advice, and no dice. Here is my LV2017-64bit attempt. In the development environment, it works fine, but in the executable Help for This VI is grayed out. The .chm file is a poor excuse, and unrelated to this VI, but never mind that, it's not the problem here.
Here's a heads-up for any LabVIEW developers in Central Texas, or any Certified LabVIEW Architects coming to Austin for the CLA Summit next month. I will be teaching Actor-Oriented Design in LabVIEW, Sept. 13th - 15th, in the training center at NI's corporate headquarters. Come take the class, enjoy Austin for the weekend, and stay over for the Summit! Details on the course offering here:
Actor-Oriented Design in LabVIEW
There are offerings in October as well, in MI, MA, and Santa Clara, if those locations are more convenient.

For years now in the student labs we've used firewire video cams and the IMAQ 1394 driver to create AVI files which then get read and converted to intensity arrays for motion analysis in a Labview app. The cheap cams are going extinct, and they want to use I-pads to create the videos which are MOV Quicktime format. So far it looks like the I-pad app they want to use can't be made to spit out an uncompressed AVI. So now I need to find out if I can either:
1) automate conversion of an MOV to uncompressed AVI and continue to use our LV analysis app as-is, or
2) find a way to parse a compressed MOV video to a frame-by-frame intensity array, and build that into our LV analysis app.
I am starting to search, but is anybody aware of an existing library or methods so I don't reinvent the wheel?

We are a group of students from the University of Cambridge who are developing a new data connectivity system for researchers like us, its up at https://rinocloud.com
It currently integrates with LabVIEW, Matlab and Python. The plugin will point your data directly at our secure storage where you can automatically add metadata results for easy and fast retrieval. Weâ€™re also rolling out plotting features for presenting the data, collaboration features for project teams and an integrated lab book.
We are looking for new users, researchers like us, to help us to get feedback from our product. Youâ€™ll be able to directly influence the product development so that you get a data system that is useful for you.
