The built-in file management functions in LabVIEW NXG help you automate and customize how you save and share measurement data. You can automate logging data to disk using the standard file formats—such as binary, text, and CSV—by recording data inline to your data acquisition. Get the data you need by implementing custom logic in your applications to trigger saving data based on certain conditions, such as operator input or an event.
Figure 2: Use the TDMS functions to generate a report that notifies you when a measurement exceeds a certain limit.
To simplify packaging your measurement reports for distribution to peers and stakeholders, you can automate the the creation of zip files with built-in APIs. As you acquire data, your data files are added to your zip file.
