Display GIF in LabVIEW NXG

Updated Nov 2, 2020

Issue Details

What is the image types supported by LabVIEW NXG? May I display GIF in my LabVIEW NXG application?

Solution

Only the following image types are supported by LabVIEW NXG:
  • PNG
  • BMP
  • JPEG
  • SVG
You are unable to display GIF in LabVIEW NXG but there is a workaround to display images with GIF like behavior:
  1. Convert the GIF into a series of supported type images.
  2. Import the images into your LabVIEW NXG project by using either a Library or Application component.
  3. Display the image by using Picture Display control with a well-timed loop structure to constantly changing the displayed image.
