Owning Palette: Application Builder VIs

Requires: Base Development System

Builds a build specification using the properties in memory that you configure when you right-click a build specification and select Properties. To use this VI, you previously configure the build specification using the Properties shortcut menu option.

You cannot use the Build VI with the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine. If you plan to run a build specification on the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine, do not include the Build VI in any of the VIs for the build specification.

Use the pull-down menu to select an instance of this VI.

Build (path)

Path to project is the full path to the LabVIEW project (.lvproj) file that contains the build specification.
Name of build specification specifies the name of the build specification. Enter the name that appears under Build Specifications in the Project Explorer window to specify which build specification builds. You can change the name of the build specification in the Build specification name text box on the Information page of the build specification properties dialog box.

If you do not specify a build specification, the VI builds all build specifications under the specified target.
Name of target specifies the target for the build specification. The target is My Computer by default.
error in describes error conditions that occur before this node runs. This input provides standard error in functionality.
Generated files specifies the paths to the generated build files.
error out contains error information. This output provides standard error out functionality.

Build (project reference)

Project reference is a reference to the LabVIEW project that contains the build specification.
Name of build specification specifies the name of the build specification. Enter the name that appears under Build Specifications in the Project Explorer window to specify which build specification builds. You can change the name of the build specification in the Build specification name text box on the Information page of the build specification properties dialog box.

If you do not specify a build specification, the VI builds all build specifications under the specified target.
Name of target specifies the target for the build specification. The target is My Computer by default.
error in describes error conditions that occur before this node runs. This input provides standard error in functionality.
project ref returns a reference to the LabVIEW project that contains the build specification.
Generated files specifies the paths to the generated build files.
error out contains error information. This output provides standard error out functionality.
