Issue Details

I have an application written in LabVIEW that I'm thinking about moving over to C#. Currently my code uses shared variables. Is it possible to use shared variables in C#?


Yes, that is very possible to do. You will need to make sure that you have Measurement Studio (a set of .NET tools to be used in Microsoft Visual Studio) to access the Shared Variable Engine , which will allow you to access shared variables. See the related links below for more information on how you can use Network Variables from Measurement Studio.
