It is important to have additional information about the waveform for later usage. This information can contain the HW device name, the channel name that the waveform was got from, the units of measured data. This information can be helpful for later usage. It can be automatically displayed on the graph as a pre-defined plot name, can make it easier to analyze the data in TDMS files, and so on.Below is discussed how you can get this information.
When the waveform is got you have to set the attributes that you want. For this, you can use the "Set waveform attributes" function.The "Set waveform attributes" function can be found in the "Waveform" section of the Functions Palette in LabVIEW. To open the Function Palette Right Click on the Block Diagram.Each attribute has its unique name that has to be inserted into the "name" input of the function. If you want to configure the attribute using NI-DAQ you can refer to the table below.
You can see the difference between configured waveform and non-configured waveform in TDMS file format in the picture
