Running a VI executes the operation for which you designed the VI. You can run a VI if the Run button on the toolbar appears as a solid white arrow. The solid white arrow also indicates you can use the VI as a subVI if you create a connector pane for the VI.
Complete the following steps to run a VI.
|Note The Abort Execution button stops the VI immediately, before the VI finishes the current iteration. Aborting a VI that uses external resources, such as external hardware, might leave the resources in an unknown state by not resetting or releasing them properly. Design VIs with a stop button to avoid this problem.|
You can configure how a VI runs by selecting File»VI Properties and selecting Execution from the Category pull-down menu.
You also can use the Run VI method to run VIs programmatically.
