The LabVIEW editor options for Multirate Dataflow differ from the editor options for G Dataflow.

The Multirate diagram editor differs from a VI diagram in the following ways:

  • Simulation ribbon group—Located on the Multirate Diagram tab, this ribbon group allows you to modify how the diagram simulates data.
  • Annotations ribbon group—Located on the Multirate Diagram tab, this ribbon group allows you to display additional code properties on the diagram.
  • Design Properties ribbon group—Located on the Multirate Diagram tab, this ribbon group allows you to view and set clock rate and pipelining properties.
  • No panel—The view selector in a Multirate Dataflow document contains tabs only for Diagram and Icon. A Multirate Dataflow document has no panel.
  • Palette differences—The Multirate diagram palette provides signal processing and stream manipulation nodes not found on the VI diagram palette. The Multirate diagram palette also omits loops, structures, and certain nodes, such as string, cluster, and timing nodes. Multirate diagram nodes have green backgrounds instead of yellow.
  • Probe options—Probes on the Multirate diagram behave similarly to nodes. On a Multirate diagram, probes are movable objects that you place on the diagram from the Debug palette rather than being tied to a wire. You can use probes to view either single numeric values or as a chart to display streams of data.
