While execution highlighting slows the execution of your code, single-stepping allows you to have more control of viewing individual actions of the program.
With execution highlighting, execution slows down, and the code executes until completion. With single-stepping, you can execute a single node at a time, causing the program to pause after the node completes.
|Step In—Display the code and pause execution if a node is a subVI and represents more code. For a node that you cannot open, use this option to highlight the node and pause its execution. For text-based programming nodes, Step-In processes the code row-wise.|
|Step Out— Complete the execution of the current diagram or subdiagram and pause.|
|Step Over—Execute a node without stepping into the node and pause at the next node.|
While single-stepping, you will notice the following behaviors:
