Issue Details

I'm building a SystemLink Cloud application which will publish both Message and Tag data from the devices I'm monitoring using SystemLink. I've been able to directly display Tag data in the Data tab in SystemLink Cloud, but cannot find a similar way to directly display Message data. Is there a way to do this using SystemLink Cloud?

Solution

There is currently no method for directly displaying Message data using SystemLink Cloud. However, you can achieve this by using a WebVI or application hosted on SystemLink Cloud to display Message data to users - the Message data would then be viewable through the WebVI tab under Visualizations on SystemLink Cloud. The Call SystemLink Data Services example for LabVIEW NXG and the NXG Web Module provides an example of what a WebVI communicating using Message data could look like, and describes how to properly host the VI on SystemLink Cloud.
