How to track position of motor using LabVIEW?

10-11  Source: Network gathering  Views:1 

I have created a VI in LabVIEW that will allow me to control a motor to turn a certain number of degrees and then the motor will provide me with feedback on its final position. For example, I ask it to turn 180 degrees and it will output 180 degrees on the screen when it reaches its destination.
Is there a way to track the motion of the motor as it turns second by second? For example, at 1 second it is at 30 degrees and 2 seconds 75 degrees, etc. I would like to display this information in a chart/graph or table.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
You can try use chart and wire its input with the output of the motor and put the whole in a loop.
