Close File (G Dataflow)

Version:
Last Modified: September 20, 2017

Closes a reference to an open file to free the resources used by the reference.

Error I/O operates uniquely in this node, which closes the file regardless of whether an error occurred in a preceding operation.

Programming Patterns
connector_pane_image
datatype_icon

refnum

The reference to the file you want to close.

datatype_icon

error in

Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

This node runs normally even if an error occurred before this node runs. Otherwise, the node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

Standard Error Behavior

Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.
datatype_icon

file path

The path corresponding to the file that this node closed.

datatype_icon

error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

Where This Node Can Run:

Desktop OS: Windows

FPGA: DAQExpress does not support FPGA devices

Web Server: Not supported in VIs that run in a web application
