Testing and Debugging a VI Editor Plugin

Version:
    Last Modified: April 15, 2020

    Use VI Editor Plugin debugging tools to verify and troubleshoot how your plugin appears to users.

    1. Open the Editor Plugin application you want to debug.
    2. To test how your plugin appears to users, click Run in the Document tab to the right. A new instance of the LabVIEW NXG editor appears. This instance includes any plugins that the application contains as though they were already installed as a package. For example, any Command VIs in the application appear as menu items in this instance.
    3. To debug any issues you observe in testing your application, return to the Application document and click Debug in the Document tab. A new instance of the editor appears with all plugins included just as before. However, in debug mode, you can also use breakpoints and probes in the original instance of the editor to debug your plugin as it runs.
