LabVIEW also allows you to create .m files and work with text-based math using the MathScript Node. Script nodes combine text-based .m files with traditional LabVIEW graphical programming. Script nodes are resizable text-entry regions you can add to LabVIEW block diagrams. For a familiarizing yourself with the MathScirpt Node, follow the Using MathScript Node in LabVIEW tutorial. This tutorial shows you how to build a more complicated VI that displays an RF antenna pattern for a dish antenna in linear (XY) and polar plots. The example shows how to build a custom user interface to add interactivity to an algorithm you define in a script in a .m file using a MathScript Node. The example adds a control input to set the amplitude/lambda input parameter of the algorithm.This tutorial requires LabVIEW and MathScript Module. Although familiarity with .m syntax is preferable, it is not required that you have MATLAB™ installed on your machine.
