How to submit code to the Code Repository

Recommended Posts

Use the LAVACR submission form.

What to include inside the submission file:

  • All your files must be included in a single zip file.
  • You must include a readme.txt file inside the zip file. Here is a template: readme.txt
  • Make sure you've included the the type of license you are using in the readme file.
  • You must put the version number and LabVIEW version of your submission in the filename and Submission name. For example: "mysupercode_V120_LV86.zip" for file and "mysupercode ver1.2 LV8.6" for submission name
  • Make sure you do not include LabVIEW toolkits or vi.lib files.
  • OpenG packages can be included in the zip file if they are required dependancies. You can also just list the package dependancies (names with version) in the description. Do not include unpackaged OpenG code.

Editing Your content after the initial submission.

If you want to edit your submission (upload a replacement file or change description) then all you need to do is click on the Edit this file link on your submission download page. Note: currently there is abug which prevents this editing. This will be fixed soon.

Future revisions of your files don't need to be re-approved but make sure you are still maintaining compliance since a member of the LAVA Certified assessor team will periodically review submissions in the LAVAcr for compliance.


  • Do not include personal information or your email address in the submission form for description since this information will be displayed on the site.

When the code is ready to be certified:

When your code complies with all the CR requirements and you are ready to have it certified click on the “Report to Moderator” button found in the lower left of the page. Please state you user name and the title of the CR item to be reviewed.


A Moderator will be assigned to you submission and reviewed.

Any comment or approval will be placed in the submission's Disscussion fourm.

Is the video still available? Shouldn't the blurb be corrected?
