System and method for deploying a graphical program to a device in a wireless manner. A graphical program (GP) is created that implements a measurement function. Some or all of the GP is transmitted to a measurement device via wireless means in accordance with a wireless communication protocol. The measurement device executes the transmitted portion of the GP to perform the measurement function, thereby generating resultant data, which is received from the measurement device via wireless means. The GP may include a block diagram that executes on the measurement device, and a user interface portion that is displayed by a first computer system. Alternatively, the GP is transmitted to a hub over a network, and the hub deploys some or all of the graphical program to the device via wireless means. The measurement device executes the GP and sends the resultant data back to the hub or computer system wirelessly.
