Issue Details

I would like to plot in a chart in LabVIEW the wave of a counter output task with DAQmx.
Is it possible to do it?


No, you can't.

In the picture below is possible to see in the upper part an Analog Output task and in the lower part a Counter Output task
As it is possible to notice in the the analog output task there is a waveform setting part where you must supply the signal to the DAQmx .There you can split that signal and plot in a graph or a chart.

Instead of, in the counter output task this part is missing because the waveform setting is made in the DAQmx Create
