Issue Details

I have a system collecting data and displaying all the data to a front panel.  I want to be able to view the front panel from a simple web browser such as one found on a Raspberry Pi, and would like the panel to update every 30 seconds.

Solution

One way to do this would be to use a LabVIEW Web Service to supply a current image of the front panel to a remote machine.  This will work with any client that can support basic image files such as PNG and simple HTML.  Please refer to See an Image of the Front Panel on the Web for a tutorial. 

In order to have the image refresh, you will need to create a Public Content Folder by right clicking on the web service in the project window and add a custom HTML file to that folder.  For information on how to use the redirect function using HTML, refer to HTML <meta> http-equiv Attribute.

Additional Information

All browsers capable of displaying images should be compatible.
