How it Works
As shown in the video at right and the Videos and Screenshots page, the combination of VI front panel rendering in the browser and constant synchronization of the front panel and browser enables the functionality of the LabVIEW VI to be extended to the browser.
Behind the scenes, LabSocket employs the HTML5 WebSocket standard for continuous, bi-directional communication with the browser. This new standard is the basis for the name of the system: "LabSocket" = LabVIEW + WebSocket!
More information about the system operation can be found in the Technical Details section.
