84The Microsoft .Net Framework is used by application developers for developing windows applications. It provides a lot of functionality for coding various types of applications. It competes closely with the Java language, so yes, the functionality it provides is pretty comprehensive.

NI LabVIEW gives you the ability to integrate with the .Net Framework to extend the capabilities of your applications beyond the functionality provided out of the box.

You can communicate with databases, encrypt information, work with windows services, integrate with the Microsoft speech API and much much more. You can also integrate with other applications that provide .Net Framework based APIs.

In this video we take an introductory step into this world. This tutorial is most effective to people who already have some understanding of the .Net Framework.


Tested with .Net Framework v2.0 SP2.
