|Note You also can select File»New to display the New dialog box and select Other Files»Class from the Create New list to create a new class.|
You can complete the following actions:
|Note You also can create a LabVIEW class from a control or type definition.|
You can define data, create member VIs, or edit the class properties in the order that you need. Some classes may not need private data, but may need member VIs so that you never define the private data control. You may change the wire appearance and other class properties before developing the class. You can develop aspects of the class in the order that best suits the individual project and development plan.
|Note You can create a directory on disk named the same as the LabVIEW class to save the class library file, class member VIs, and class custom default probes. You can include the files that the class library owns in the directory. If you include files for more than one class library in the same directory, conflicts might occur if you try to include VIs of the same name in different class libraries. Naming conflicts can occur in the development process when you override dynamic member VIs.|
