  • Using the Tools Palette in NI LabVIEW
    NI LabVIEW, there are various palettes to help program specific tasks. The mouse is the primary tool, which helps interact with the programming environment.

Overview

In a graphical programming language such as NI LabVIEW software, the mouse is the main way to interact with the programming environment. That said, the mouse pointer must be able to accomplish many different tasks, such as selecting, wiring, highlighting text, and so on. This module examines not only the many functions that the mouse can accomplish in LabVIEW but also how to go about completing those tasks.
