CalcExpress for LabVIEW
Read what customers say about CalcExpress:
In the early days we have looked at Gmath to solve the math-part for our customers but the flexibility provided comes with a price... Itís slow, it's buggy but... it's written completely in G!
Other solutions we have seen drift away from the 'all G' idea but CalcExpress gives us the flexibility and speed we need, using 'as much of G' as possible. We can extend the function library with own functions, the variable manager is extendable with own variable types. CalcExpress gives us a very robust solution that can be part of the basis for a good application.
is a very valuable addition to my function palette !
I remember quite clearly when I first was introduced to CalcExpress. One of my colleagues told me about CalcExpress and said "Is this what we need to solve our problem with parsing equations at runtime". Having been a LabVIEW programmer since '97, my reflex reaction was "there is no such thing as an easy way to parse equations in LabVIEW" and I went on "the formula node is only useful, if you can hardcode the formulas needed in your software". But my colleague did not give up, and after weeks of telling me about CalcExpress, I gave in, and agreed to use a little time, and take a look at CalcExpress. Just 10 minutes later I was parsing dynamic equations using CalcExpress and my own formula parsing program in LabVIEW was scraped.
My advice to you is this: If you are using LabVIEW, and have a need for formula parsing, don't waste your time with the formula node (or HIQ scripts for that matter). Use CalcExpress instead.
Also CalcExpress is eminent at acting as a global (or local) variable container and has many many other features.

CalcExpress overcomes these workflow limitations by adding a powerful and flexible script interpreter to the LabVIEW environment. With CalcExpress, you can try several different approaches without the numerous wire-and-rewire stages often associated with conventional LabVIEW development. This is particularly useful during the early problem analysis and design stages.
you are looking for a way to add scripting flexibility to your LabVIEW workflow,
CalcExpress is an ideal solution!
