Owning Palette: File I/O VIs and Functions
Requires: Base Development System. This topic might not match its corresponding palette in LabVIEW depending on your operating system, licensed product(s), and target.
Use the file constants with the File I/O VIs and functions.
|Application Directory||Returns the path to the directory containing the application.|
|Current VI's Path||Returns the path to the file of the current VI. If the VI never has been saved, this function returns <Not A Path>.|
|Default Data Directory||Returns the directory you configure to store the data a VI or function generates.|
|Default Directory||Returns the path to the default directory.|
|Empty Path Constant||Returns an empty path.|
|Get System Directory||Returns the system directory specified in the system directory type input.|
|Not A Path Constant||Returns a path whose value is <Not A Path>. You can use this path as an output from structures and subVIs when an error occurs and you do not want to return a path.|
|Not a Refnum Constant||Returns a refnum whose value is Not A Refnum. You can use this refnum as an output from structures and subVIs when an error occurs.|
|Path Constant||Use this constant to supply a constant path value to the block diagram.|
|Temporary Directory||Returns the path to the temporary directory.|
|VI Library||Returns the path to the VI library directory for the current application instance on the current computer.|
