Use this page of the Real-Time Application Properties dialog box to edit settings and destination directories for the files and folders included in a stand-alone real-time application.

This page includes the following components:

  • Project Files—Displays the tree view of items under the RT target of the Project Explorer window.
  • Inclusion Type—Appears if you select a VI in the Project Files tree. Specifies whether you want to include the VI as a startup VI, a dynamic VI you can call through the VI Server, or a file included in the real-time stand-alone application only if referenced.
  • Set destination for all contained items—Appears if you select a folder in the Project Files tree. Place a checkmark in the checkbox if you want to include all the items in the folder in the real-time stand-alone application or to set the destination directory on the RT target for all the items in the folder. The destination directory options in the Destination pull-down menu correspond to the directories in the Destinations listbox on the Destinations page of the Real-Time Application Properties dialog box.
    • Set destination for packed project libraries and shared libraries—Appears only when you select Dependencies.
  • Destination—Appears if you select a VI in the Project Files tree. Specifies if you want to include the VI in the stand-alone real-time application or if you want to set a destination directory for the VI on the RT target. The destination directory options in the Destination pull-down menu correspond to the directories in the Destinations listbox on the Destinations page of the Real-Time Application Properties dialog box.
  • Set VI properties for all contained items—Appears when you select a folder in the Project Files tree. Place a checkmark in the checkbox if you want to set the VI properties for the items in the selected folder. When you place a checkmark in the checkbox,LabVIEW enables the Customize VI Properties button.
  • Customize VI Properties—Displays the VI Properties dialog box. Use the dialog box to specify the properties for the selected VI. By default, LabVIEW uses the property settings configured in the VI. Any settings you configure in the VI Properties dialog box override any settings you configured in the Customize Window Appearance dialog box. LabVIEW dims this option for items other than VIs.
  • Set save settings for all contained items—Appears when you select a folder in the Project Files tree. Place a checkmark in the checkbox if you want to set the save settings for the items in the selected folder.
  • Use default save settings—Saves the VIs using default save settings. The default save setting for the VIs you add to the Startup VIs and Always Included listboxes on the Source Files page is to remove the block diagram. The default for all other VIs is to remove the block diagram and the front panel. Remove the checkmark from this checkbox to change the default settings for each item you select in the Project Files tree.
    • Remove front panel—Removes the front panel from a VI in the build. Removing the front panel reduces the size of the application or shared library. If you select yes, LabVIEW removes the front panel, but Property Nodes or Invoke Nodes that refer to the front panel might return errors that affect the behavior of the source distribution. LabVIEW enables this option if you remove the checkmark from the Use default save settings checkbox.
      Note  If you execute the Run VI method after placing a checkmark in the Remove front panel checkbox, the Run VI method will return error 1013.
    • Remove block diagram—Removes the block diagram from a VI in the build. LabVIEW enables this option if you remove the checkmark from the Remove front panel checkbox. If you remove the front panel, you also remove the block diagram. As a result, if you place a checkmark in the Remove front panel checkbox, a checkmark automatically appears in the Remove block diagram checkbox.
  • Set password for all contained items—Appears when you select a folder in the Project Files tree. Place a checkmark in the checkbox if you want to configure the password for the items in the selected folder.
  • No password change—Specifies for LabVIEW to not prompt for a password if you use the VI in a build. LabVIEW also does not modify or apply a password you previously applied to the VI. This option is available only if you select the Changed VIs, Development Distribution, or Custom Save options.
  • Remove password—Removes the password you previously applied to a VI or library. Prior to removing the password, LabVIEW prompts you to enter the current password during the build.
  • Apply new password—Applies the password you supply in the text box to a VI or library. Prior to applying the new password, LabVIEW prompts you to enter the current password during the build. Enter the password in the text box below the Apply new password option. You also can apply a password to a VI without saving it. This option is not available if you select the Save for Previous or Template option.
  • Apply prefix to all contained items—Appears when you select a folder in the Project Files tree. Place a checkmark in the checkbox to enter a prefix in the text box and rename all items in the folder by applying the prefix to the existing names.
  • Rename this file in the build—Renames a file that you select in the Project Files list.
