Control References for Classes (and, incidentally, Numerics) Explained

Recommended Posts

Here at NI Week, I've had a couple different customers ask questions about control refnums as they relate to LabVIEW classes. So I've put together a VI that has comments explaining these control references. As part of that, I had to explain Numeric control references, since the design decisions for classes mimic those of Numerics. That's another area that has been a source of misunderstanding in the past.

Unzip the attached VIs then open the VI named

OPEN ME_CtrlRefsInfo.vi

VI Server is one of my weaker points in LV code, but I've tried to be clear to the best of my ability. I hope this helps.

NOTE: This is saved in version LV8.6. I have attached LV8.2 version in a reply to this post below...
