Issue Details

How can I exchange data between a LabVIEW 2017 Web Service application running on a compactRIO and a LabVIEW NXG application?


Using LabVIEW NXG Web Module, you can easily retrieve data from any Web Service (both third party and LabVIEW) in a WebVI.

You can refer to Call a LabVIEW Web Service shipping example in LabVIEW NXG.

You can also find an additional example on how to call a LabVIEW Web Service from a WebVI on GitHub.

Additional Information

You can also securely share data between multiple applications running LabVIEW 2014 or newer, LabVIEW Real-Time, and LabVIEW NXG using the Skyline Tag API
