Last Modified: December 18, 2017

Retrieves the attributes of an item in the menu.

connector_pane_image
datatype_icon

item tag

Tag of the item whose attributes you want to retrieve.

Default: Empty string — Causes this node to retrieve the menu bar attributes.

datatype_icon

menu reference

Reference to a menu bar in a VI.

datatype_icon

error in

Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

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.

Default: No error

datatype_icon

submenu tags

Tags of the submenus if the item has submenus..

datatype_icon

menu reference out

Reference to the menu bar in a VI.

datatype_icon

error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.
