Updated Dec 28, 2023



  • LabVIEW


  • NI-DAQmx

I would like to learn about DAQmx and study how to program it by learning the examples. Where do I find these examples within LabVIEW?

You can locate NI-DAQmx Examples by using NI Example Finder. You can then modify the given code to meet the specific needs of your application:
  1. Launch LabVIEW
  2. On the Menu Bar, click Help >> Find Examples...
  1. Then there are two options to get to examples: 
    1. In the Browse tab expand Hardware Input and Output
      1. Then Select DAQmx
  1. On the newly created window, Change the Tab to Search
    1. Enter DAQmx and Double-Click the result
  1. Choose the examples that you would like to use 

Additional Information

If you have an Internet connection, the LabVIEW Example Finder can also search for other NI-DAQ™mx examples. Additionally, from the lower left hand corner of the example finder, you can optionally select the hardware you will be using to filter your results. Once you select your hardware, you will see an icon next to the examples that are supported for the specific device.
