When multiple systems it is sometimes useful to programmatically find and search for all the NI devices connected to the system. One method of doing this is to use System Configuration and LabVIEW. This guide will walk through the process of programmatically finding and searching by name for all the NI devices with a step by step process and snippets to give a quick start to the application. Please note that expected results for both methods are shown at the bottom of the page.
Note: This image is a LabVIEW snippet, which includes LabVIEW code that you can reuse in your project. To use a snippet, right-click the image, save it to your computer, and drag the file onto your LabVIEW diagram.
3. Use the System Hardware Property Node to select any additional information you would like to be displayed about the connected devices.4. Use the Search Devices String Control on the front panel to enter the device name you want to search for i.e cRIO. Note: this search is case sensitive.
