Issue Details

I am trying to use LabVIEW in a touch screen environment, how can I do that? Will I have to download a different version of LabVIEW/add ons?



For  LabVIEW Development Systems 2014 Onwards

If you have LabVIEW development systems 2014 onwards, NI LabVIEW Touch Panel Module is already included in it for touch screen integration. Follow this tutorial for more information. 

For Windows 7 and 8

If you do not have LabVIEW development systems, you can purchaseTouchscreen Toolkit for LabVIEW - Aledyne Engineering for creatingLabVIEW user interfaces that enable multi-touch and gesture recognition. This method is only compatible with Windows 7 and 8

For iOS, Androids and Windows 8 / 8.1 RT and Pro, Windows 10

You can download Data Dashboard for LabVIEW, it is a mobile application that enables the creation of custom user interfaces that can monitor and control LabVIEW applications remotely. Data Dashboard for LabVIEW allows you to use iOS, Android, and Windows mobile devices to connect to the values of network published shared variables and/or web services using buttons, text input and display, charts, gauges, and LEDs.
