In the previous installment, we built a very simple program which consisted of a single actor and a single message. In this part we will create an application that is a bit more complex. This example consists of two actors: a DAQ actor which can read an analog voltage and a User Interface actor which provides a graphical user interface to display the data. Let’s get started!

The Actor Framework has become the defacto standard tool for developing large, maintainable, and scalable applications in LabVIEW. For many LabVIEW developers, however, the learning curve associated with the Actor Framework seems like it is much too steep for them to take advantage of its many benefits. The purpose of this article is to help developers who are familiar with the common design patterns of “procedural” LabVIEW development transition to the Actor Framework. Hopefully, by the end of this article you will see that the Actor Framework is not quite so different from the patterns
