This is another article in a series showing some of my favorite OpenG VIs — “The OpenG VIs that I couldn’t live without“. In this article, I’m going to show a very useful VI, Array of VData to VCluster, that is used for converting arrays into a clusters. The benefit of using this function, is that, unlike the Array to Cluster primitive, it defers type checking to run-time.
Here’s a short, 5 minute video showing how to use this function:
If you want to give this VI a try, you can obtain it using VI Package Manager (VIPM). Simply select the OpenG LabVIEW Data Tools (oglib_lvdata) package from within VIPM. Once installed, this will add a new functions palette at OpenG>>OpenG LabVIEW Data Tools. (See here for a quick guide on how to install OpenG on VIPM.)
