Reads properties of a VI reference.

connector_pane_image
datatype_icon

reference in

Reference to 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

reference out

Reference to a VI.

datatype_icon

error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

Execution State

Enum representing the execution state of the VI.

Name Description
Bad

VI has errors and cannot execute.

Idle

VI is not running but it is memory.

Run top level VI is the top-level VI in an active hierarchy.
Running VI is reserved for execution by one or more active top-level VIs.

Panel

Reference to the panel of the VI, which you can use with the Panel Manipulation palette API or other LabVIEW APIs for working with VI panels.

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
