Hi all,


For those who know about leap motion (https://www.leapmotion.com/) you may know that the SDK is now released and anyone can sign up as developer to download this.   The first devices ship out July 22.  I was surprised to find no one on LAVA has been posting hacks and ideas since I know at least a few Labview developers were part of the first wave last year who got send a free device to play with.


Does anyone have experience with the Leap motion device?  Anyone planning to start playing with the controller soon?

Thanks David_L,


I just got my Leapmotion today.  Minh, you can buy one from the leapmotion.com website.  its $120 for Australians and it took only 5 days to get to me with FedEx.  I am about to start playing with it.  i have also signed up as a developer and downloaded the SDK.


For anyone who has a Leapmotion, lets please share our joys and frustrations with it.

I've been keeping an eye on this as it looks like an interface with lots of potential. (Unfortunately, I don't have one to play with. :(  ) I've seen two reviews that may be helpful:




There seems to be difficulty with extraneous light and arm fatigue.

I looked at the Labviewer hacker site but they are not providing any code or help with code!  looks like a job from scratch!  


@Tim_S I bought mine from LeapMotion website from Australia.  It was $80 + $20 shipping.  It came in just 4 days shipped from Singapore hassle free.  If you have a spare $100 you can get one quick!


If anyone has code to share on LeapMotion that would be lovely.  I will put mine up as soon as I can talk to mine.


best regards

Unfortunately my current experiment, a grow your own minion home kit, seems to be sucking all my resources for the foreseeable future. :)

      Hello everyone i am relative new to labview and currently i am bit stuck need help...
      i want to capture data with a digital trigger on my chassis PFI0 (9178), the pulse is 20ms long and occurs on my straingauge 9237 module.
      The pulse comes in 10 times in a row with couple of miliseconds between it, can i measure it every time and push it inside an array like a "last in first out" memmory to evaluate it slower for the user?
      I am currently struggeling with the loop dividing into more then one loop approach.
      How to breach out from accquire->store->plot in one loopdone right with good performance? I don't know how to shape the cure because there is a dependency from loop time to datapoints with the daqmx task inside of it :-/
      Capturing should always be possible and run in background and the user just uses the frontend to play around with filters (me learning what filter shape the cure in which way)
      It would be nice if someone can share their knowledge towards realizing multiple graphs from a pulse that comes in and is stored in a graph.
      I know my program is not pretty right now but with progress it will be nicer, function first to learn!

      I am trying to use a mixed signal graph to plot a set of digital data (12 lines) and 4 arrays of analog data in XY format.  For the analog data I want each array to be assigned to a different group in the graph, but at runtime they seem to all default to Group 1 (the Pressure graph shown below).  I have been able to change them using the legend or the graph properties for each plot, but cannot find a way to do it programmatically.  Is there a property node that can be used to set this?

      Is there a way to make a type def behave as a Strict Type Def during development (so that cosmetic changes made to the .ctl are propagated), and as a Type Def. at runtime (so that the cosmetics can be still be changed with property nodes)?
      My use case is that the code just needs to colour the controls at runtime, the other property values are decided during development.

      At JKI, we have found that a professional user interface design can make a huge difference for LabVIEW applications. That’s why we’re very proud to announce we have just released the JKI Flat UI Controls for LabVIEW, a beautiful, professionally-designed set of LabVIEW controls that we use on some of our own projects at JKI!  We hope that by sharing these with the community, we can help make it easy for just about anyone to build their own beautiful and intuitive user interfaces in LabVIEW.

      LabVIEW Versions:
      Created and tested with LabVIEW 2012
      OpenG Application Control Library >=
      OpenG Array Library >=
      OpenG File Library >=
      OpenG LabVIEW Data Library >=
      OpenG String Library >=
      LAVA Palette >=
      This package contains tools for designing user interfaces.
      A first palette helps create special effects using transparency of front panel. Using them allows to quickly create fade-ins or outs using linear or exponential variation of the intensity. A second palette contains VIs to calculate the position of GObjects for many purposes like alignment, snap, mouse follow, etc. A third palette contains VIs to create dialog boxes based on class instances. "Simple Error Dialog" and "Simple Selection List" are featured with or without backrground blackening effect. A fourth palette includes some VIs to move objects programmatically on the front panel, using a basic deceleration algorithm to provide an impression of a smooth movement. The packaged VIs are all namespaced using a suffix “__lava_lib_ui_tools” which should not conflict with any of your own code.
      Front Panel Transparency (Fade In & Fade Out) Utilities (Alignment, Snap) Dialog (OOP based, extensible) Engine (Beta) for object movement Instructions:
      This package is distributed on the LabVIEW Tools Network (version 1.3) and updates are on LAVA (1.4). It can be installed directly in the addon folder of any LabVIEW version from 2012 to now. The addon installs automatically under the LAVA palette of the addon submenu.
      Distributed under the BSD license.
      If you have any problems with this code or want to suggest features, please go to www.lavag.org and navigate to the discussion page.
