Complete the following steps to wire input and output tunnels automatically on a structure that can contain multiple cases. These structures include the Case, Event, Conditional Disable, and Diagram Disable structures.

You cannot configure tunnels for automatic wiring on the Stacked Sequence structure.
  1. After wiring the input and output tunnel in one case of the structure, right-click the output tunnel to display the Linked Input Tunnel shortcut menu.
  2. Select one of the following wiring options from the Linked Input Tunnel shortcut menu.
    • Create & Wire Unwired Cases—LabVIEW automatically wires the tunnels in any existing cases that you have not wired previously. LabVIEW also wires the tunnels in any new cases you create.
    • Create—LabVIEW automatically wires the tunnels in any new cases you create. Existing cases remain unwired.
    The tunnel selector cursor appears.
Note Note  LabVIEW disables these options if there are no tunnels to which you can link.
  1. Click the input tunnel you want to associate with, or link to, the output tunnel. White triangle glyphs appear on the input and output tunnels to indicate they are linked.

If you selected Create & Wire Unwired Cases, notice that LabVIEW wires the tunnels in all existing cases. If you add a subdiagram, or case, to the structure, LabVIEW wires the tunnels in the new cases. If you selected Create, notice that LabVIEW wires the tunnels only in new cases you add. Existing cases remain unwired.

Right-click a linked output tunnel and select Linked Input Tunnel»Find to locate the corresponding input tunnel. Right-click a linked output tunnel and select Linked Input Tunnel»Clear to remove the association between the input and output tunnels. LabVIEW disables these options if the tunnel you select does not have a linked input tunnel.

Note Note  If you right-click a linked output tunnel and select Use Default If Unwired, LabVIEW removes the association between the input and output tunnels.
