The Origin installation provides a collection of custom building-block Virtual Instruments (VIs) that enable the user to create their own VIs to communicate with Origin. These custom VIs can be used for operations such as opening and closing communication with Origin, exchanging data back and forth between Origin and LabVIEW, and sending commands to Origin.

In order to access these Origin sub-VIs in the LabVIEW function palette, you need to copy the palette files from <Origin Program Folder>\Samples\Automation Server\LabVIEW\Palette to the user.lib\addons subfolder under the LabVIEW installation folder. Specifically, please copy the following files:

  • OriginApp_LV7.llb - Basic VIs that handles the Origin OPJ files, worksheet and columns
  • OriginAppClassics_LV7.llb - Older VIs exsited before Origin 8
  • OriginWave_LV7.llb - VIs that handles Origin matrix objects
  • OriginMatrix_LV7.llb - VIs that handles LabVIEW Waveform data

After Origin 8.1,you can also select Tools: Copy Origin Sub-VI to LabVIEW User.lib to automatically copy these files and delete any older versions of these files.

Note:
  • The custom VIs are designed to work in LabVIEW versions 7.0 or later. They do not work properly in LabVIEW version 5.0 or 6.1.
  • Once sub-VI, OA_ConnectToOrigin, has been modified. If you have VIs that have made use of this sub-VI, you will need to replace it with the modified version.
