New Features and Upgrade Resources for NI DIAdem

Each new release of NI DIAdem aims to make you more productive and more efficient when visualizing, analyzing, and reporting data so that you can spend more time on the tasks that truly matter, like making decisions with the information you extract from data. DIAdem 2012 introduces several new features that make data processing even faster and easier than before.

Top New Features

 

Develop Scripts Faster With the New Object-Oriented Report API

Reduce your programming time and effort using the object-oriented VBScript API for reporting, complete with syntax highlighting and code completion.

Analyze More Data With New Functions

Analyze your data using new engineering functions that range from basic math to signal processing and more.

Check for Updates to DataPlugins From Within DIAdem

Always have the most current DataPlugins with the DataPlugin Update Manager, which checks ni.com/dataplugins for updates.

Use Scalable Background Images for 2D Charts

Give more meaning to your data by adding graphic images to the background of a 2D axis system in your reports.

Extended Navigator Context Menu

Increased flexibility to copy, paste, delete, rename, and write to a protected data file from the Navigator makes working with your data a breeze.

Obtain Enhanced Reporting Performance and Usability

Reports now load faster than ever before and support generating object-oriented syntax for variables, custom interactive experience for the creation of coordinates, and more.
