Issue Details

I am using LabVIEW for Linux with DAQmx 18. When I create a control off the physical channel input of the DAQmx Create Virtual Channel.vi, the created control only shows options for analog input. How can I get around this?


DAQmx 18 support for Linux machines was released recently, and some features are still unsupported. This includes Front Panel I/O controls. Until future releases add this functionality, any code looking to make use of these unsupported features must be programmed on a Windows OS.

Additional Information

For more information on supported/unsupported features for the DAQmx release for Linux machines, please see our article outlining these differences.
