A library is a collection of source files, such as VIs, type definitions, palette files, and other files. You can use a library to organize​ files into a single hierarchy of items.

A library allows you to reuse code across multiple applications without having to implement the same functionality in each application.​ Your code must be part of a library before you can reuse it across ​applications.

Use a Library document (.gcomp) to create a library from scratch or from existing files. The Library​ document allows you to perform the following actions: ​

  • Organize files using namespaces to avoid name collisions ​
  • Enable source files to be called from other applications and libraries ​
  • Customize the organization of files on the palette ​
