Block diagram string constants

Recommended Posts

Posted this in LV forum but was advised to post it here.

The LV 'Tools'->Advanced'->'Export' functionality can find and read and modify block diagram string constants.

How to do that yourself?

i.e. itterate over all block diagram string constants and read and modify the string.


Using LV 8.2

There is a VI method named "Export VI Strings" that you can use to export strings into an XML file. The method "Import VI Strings" does the reverse. So you Export-> Modify file -> Import.

Needless to say that the VI must be idle (not running) in Development (not run-time) LabVIEW for that to work.

There are also scripting methods that would allow to modify block diagram constants but I'll let the experts to comment on that.
