Dynamic dispatch can have an inheriting class (child object) override the VI (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Method_overriding). Static dispatch prevents override by the inheriting class.

Is this a configurable property of a method vi, or once it's static, it's always static until you create a new vi with the same code in a dynamic dispatch method vi?

You can change your terminals to dynamic dispatch at any time by choosing This Connection Is > Dynamic Dispatch Input/Output (Required) at the terminal block.

You'll find that this option is only available for class inputs and outputs. To change your VI from static dispatch to dynamic dispatch, simply change both - input and output terminals - to dynamic dispatch.

Hello, everyone. I'm new to the LabVIEW OOP. What the difference bettween the dynamic dispatch vi and static dispatch vi in LabVIEW class?

A call to a static dispatch VI will always invoke that exact VI.

A call to a dynamic dispatch VI may invoke that VI or any VI of the same name of a descendant class. Exactly which VI will be called is decided at call time based on the type of the object that is on the wire going to the dynamic dispatch input terminal. A dynamic dispatch VI is equivalent to a virtual function in C++, C#, or JAVA (and other text languages).
