Last Modified: December 18, 2017

Configures the attributes of an item in the menu.

connector_pane_image
datatype_icon

item tag

Tag of the item whose attributes you want to set.

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

item name

Name of the item.

Default: Empty string — Causes this node to leave the name of the item unchanged.

datatype_icon

enabled?

A Boolean that determines whether to enable the item in the menu.

True Enable the item in the menu.
False Disable and gray out the item in the menu.

Default: False

datatype_icon

checked?

A Boolean that determines whether the item has a checkmark next to it.

True The item has a checkmark next to it.
False The item does not have a checkmark next to it.

Default: False

datatype_icon

shortcut

Keyboard equivalent of selecting the item with a mouse.

datatype_icon

include shift key

A Boolean that determines whether to include the <Shift> key in the shortcut.

True Includes the <Shift> key in the shortcut.
False Does not include the <Shift> key in the shortcut.

Default: False

datatype_icon

include control key

A Boolean that determines whether to include the <Ctrl> key in the shortcut.

True Includes the <Ctrl> key in the shortcut.
False Does not include the <Ctrl> key in the shortcut. Set include control key to False only if you specify a function key, such as <F1>, <F2>, and so on, as the shortcut key.

Default: False

datatype_icon

shortcut key

Key associated with the shortcut.

Default: Empty string — Causes this node to leave the shortcut of the menu item unchanged.

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.

Where This Node Can Run:

Desktop OS: Windows

FPGA: This product does not support FPGA devices

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