You can search a single VI or multiple VIs in an application instance for a particular object or string of text and replace that item with another. Select Edit»Find and Replace to display the Find dialog box. The Find dialog box displays different search options depending on whether you search for objects or text. Use the Find dialog box to search VIs in memory for VIs, Express VIs, functions, controls, indicators, type definitions, global variables, Property Nodes, breakpoints, or text. You can search the current VI, selected VIs in the application instance, or all VIs in the application instance.

(Statechart) You also can search a statechart diagram, including the guard and action code of the statechart, for a particular object or string of text.

Note  You also can search for a VI by filename in a directory.

You can replace all items that LabVIEW finds, or you can select the items you want to replace.

Note  You cannot replace objects or text in running VIs.
