Copying Method VIs

Recommended Posts

Is there any easy way to add a new method VI to an existing hierarchy of inherited classes? Right now I make the VI in the base class, and then save as... to make a copy in each child class, and then I have to change the input and output class terminals, add it to the correct class, and re-import the icon glyph.

I guess that's not too bad, but it is pretty tedious.

Are you changing the code at all? If not, then there is no need for each child class to have that VI, just call the parent VI.

And if you're overriding the parent method just so it is easily available from the child class (i.e. not changing the functionality,) then you may be interested in this idea.
