What are the differences between the Embedded, Snapshot, and Monitor options in the Web Publishing Tool?
The Embedded option embeds the front panel of the VI so clients can view and control the front panel remotely using a browser. The VI must be in memory on the server computer so clients can view and control the front panel. You can embed only standard VIs for remote front panel connections. For example, you cannot embed a polymorphic VI.
Note: The Embedded option is available only in the LabVIEW Full and Professional Development Systems. It also requires the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine to be installed on the computer that is viewing the Remote Front Panel. Further, the Embedded option requires one Remote Panel Connection license for each Remote Panel session.
The Snapshot option displays a static image of the front panel in a browser. Snapshot does not allow you to interact with the controls of the VI from the browser. User can use the refresh button on the web browser to view changes on the front panel of the VI.
The Monitor option displays an animated snapshot that updates continuously. Monitor does not allow you to interact with the controls of the VI from the browser.
