Running Multiple LabVIEW Tasks at the Same Time

Issue Details

I have two separate VIs that are running code. They are separate tasks, but I want to combine them in the same VI. Can I do this?

Solution

In general, you should be able to add the code from one VI into the other simply by copying and pasting the block diagram code into the second VI. LabVIEW should be able to run these two pieces of code in parallel.

Additional Information

As you are combining pieces of code together, you will want to keep your code's architecture and modularity in mind. Use the Top 5 LabVIEW Rookie Mistakes newsletter to understand how to make use of design patterns and subVIs to improve your LabVIEW code.
