LabVIEW Function Node Trigonometric Functions Pass Back the Wrong Value

Issue Details

I'm passing values in degrees into the trigonometric functions in my function node and am getting unexpected return values.

Solution

The trigonometric functions in the function node take radian values. If you want to use degree values, you'll have to add an extra step to convert the values into degrees before passing them into the trig functions.

Similarly, if you want to use the inverse functions to return to degrees, you'll have to convert the return from the inverse functions from radians to degrees.
