You can replace a block diagram object with a different object without losing all the editing options you selected for the object up to that point.

Complete the following steps to replace a block diagram object.

  1. Right-click a block diagram object.
  2. Select Replace from the shortcut menu to display the Functions palette.
Note Note  Depending on the block diagram object you select, you might see different replacement options. For example, if you right-click a While Loop, you can select to replace it with only a For Loop or a (Real-Time, Windows) Timed Loop.
  1. Select a VI or function on the Functions palette to replace the object on the block diagram. If the number of terminals or data types in the objects are different, you might have broken wires.
Note  When you select a VI with the same name as a VI in memory, a dialog box prompts you to replace the VI or cancel the operation. If you select Replace, LabVIEW replaces all the VIs in memory with the VI you selected.
