Open VI Reference In Tools Menu VI Failing
GregFreeman posted a topic in User InterfaceI have a tool I'm creating and it searches the active project for all VIs recursively. I have found if I try to use Open VI Reference to an unsaved VI it fails (I am wiring up just the VI name as a string). It gives me error 1004, VI not in memory. However, if I go to that specific project and create a new VI and do open VI Reference with "Untitled x" wired as a string, it opens the reference fine. Does the tools menu somehow run in a different context where it can't open a reference to an unsaved VI? Is there a way to make this work? I should add, there are no problems when it's saved to disk and wired up as a path (somewhat obviously).
