Returns an image of the block diagram and scales it proportionally according to the maximum width and height you wire to the method. For example, if the image of the block diagram is 200 by 200 pixels and you wire a value of 50 to maximum width and a value of 100 to maximum height, this method returns an image that is 50 by 50 pixels. If you do not wire a value to maximum width or maximum height, the image retains its actual size.

You also can use the Append VI Block Diagram to Report VI to create an image of a block diagram and append it to a report.
