Use the print properties to configure what is to be printed. Set all the custom printing properties because they default to their previous settings. To actually print VI information, you must use a VI Class print method.

PropertyDescription
Application:Active:ApplicationGets an application reference to the active VIs owning application. Details
Application:Active:VIReturns the name of the active VI in the application. Details
Application:All Libraries in Application InstanceLists all Libraries currently in memory in this application instance. Details
Application:All VIs In MemoryReturns a list of VIs in memory for the specified application instance. This property returns an error if you wire a remote application reference to the reference input. For a remote application, use the Exported VIs in Memory property to return a list of exported VIs. Details
Application:Auto-Route WiresReturns whether LabVIEW automatically finds a route for a wire. Details
Application:Command Line ArgumentsReturns an array of user-defined command-line arguments passed when LabVIEW launched. Details
Application:Compiler ThresholdGets or sets how complex a VI must be before the compiler limits optimizations to improve editor responsiveness. If the complexity of a VI is lower than the threshold indicated by this value, the compiler does not limit optimizations, thereby improving the execution speed of the VI. If the complexity of a VI is higher than the threshold, the compiler limits optimizations in order to improve editor responsiveness for the VI. To determine the complexity of a specific VI, refer to the Compiled Code Complexity value on the Memory Usage page of the VI Properties dialog box or use the Compiled:Code Complexity property. This property provides programmatic access to the Compiler optimizations slider on the Environment page of the Options dialog box. Details
Application:Current Environment ModeReturns the current environment mode of LabVIEW, such as robotics. If you call this property from a VI in the LabVIEW development system environment, this property returns an empty string. Details
Application:Debug NameReturns the name used for opening a debugging connection to this application or shared library. This method is only useful in built applications or shared libraries. Details
Application:Default:ApplicationReturns the default application reference. Details
Application:Default:Data DirectoryPath to the default data directory. Details
Application:Delete FP Terminal from DiagramReturns whether LabVIEW deletes terminals corresponding to front panel objects from diagram operations. Details
Application:Directory PathAbsolute path to the directory where the application is located. Details
Application:Exported VIs In MemoryReturns a list of exported VIs in memory. Details
Application:KindIndicates the LabVIEW instance the VI is running in, including invalid application types. Details
Application:LanguageIndicates the language of the LabVIEW environment or stand-alone application as a string according to ISO 639. Values include en, de, fr, ja, ko, and zh-cn. Details
Application:Menu Launch:AppReturns a reference to the application instance that launched the calling VI from a menu selection. Details
Application:Menu Launch:VIReturns the name of the VI that launched the calling VI from a menu selection. Details
Application:NameFilename of the application. Details
Application:Save VersionReturns the version number of the LabVIEW file format to which LabVIEW documents are saved. This version number might be different from the version number of the application. For example, LabVIEW with the version number 9.0.1 saves LabVIEW documents with a file format version number of 9.0. Details
Application:Saveable VersionsAn array of the LabVIEW versions to which this version of LabVIEW can save. The array is in reverse chronological order, with the zeroth element being the current version of LabVIEW. Each element of the array is a valid version to pass to VI server functions which save to previous versions. Details
Application:Show FP Tip StripsWriting the property: Setting this property to TRUE enables the display of tip strips on front panel controls. Setting the property to FALSE prevents them from being displayed. Reading the property: Specifies whether tip strips display when idling over controls on the front panel. Details
Application:Target:CPUIndicates the target CPU of an application. Details
Application:Target:Data Cache Entry SizesReturns an array of the entry sizes, in bytes, for all cache levels the computer or target contains. Details
Application:Target:Data Cache SizesReturns an array of the cache sizes, in bytes, for each cache level the computer or target contains. Details
Application:Target:Number of Cores per PackageReturns the number of cores per package the computer or target contains. Details
Application:Target:Number of Logical ProcessorsReturns the number of processing units the computer or target contains. Details
Application:Target:Number of Logical Processors per CoreReturns the number of logical processors per core the computer or target contains. Details
Application:Target:Number of PackagesReturns the number of packages, or chips, the computer or target contains. Details
Application:Target:Operating SystemIndicates the operating system for which the application was built. Mac OS refers to Mac OS versions 9 and 8. Carbon refers to Mac OS X. Details
Application:User Interface AvailableIf you are not targeted to a real-time (RT) platform, this property is always TRUE. If you are targeted to an RT-platform and the host is connected, this property is TRUE. When this property is FALSE, the host is not connected, requiring that the Real-Time Module application must be able to handle all operations independent of the host. Use this property to determine when it is safe to display a dialog box that requires user interaction. Details
Application:User NameUser name used to open the application. Details
Application:Version NumberVersion number of the application. In a stand-alone application or shared library, this property returns the version of the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine. Details
Application:Version YearVersion year of the application. In a stand-alone application or shared library, this property returns the version year of the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine. Details
Application:VI Of Top Most Block DiagramReturns a reference to the block diagram highest in the Z order, which is most likely the last block diagram accessed. Details

Note  A newer version of an operating system often returns a larger alphanumeric value.
Details
Operating System:Detailed NameDetailed name of the operating system where the application is actually running. This string value returns the operating system and its version, such as Microsoft Windows XP. This property is similar to a combination of OSName and OSVersion, which return the platform name and a numeric version number respectively. This property is read only. Details
Operating System:NameName of the operating system where the application is actually running. Details
Operating System:Version NumberVersion number of the actual operating system. Details

Printing:File Wrap Text LengthMaximum number of characters on a single line in a file. Affects the Print:VI To HTML, Print:VI To RTF, and Print:VI To Text methods. Set this property to 0 to print all the characters on one line so the text does not wrap. Details
Printing:JPEG QualityPercentage value from 0 to 100 specifying the level of quality you want for the JPEG graphic in VIs printed either interactively or with the Print:VI To HTML method. The scale balances image quality and file size. A value in the 75 to 95 range produces a compressed file with a high-quality image, and a value below 50 produces a smaller file size with a low-quality image. The default is 80. Details
Printing:MethodGets or sets how LabVIEW prints. Details
Printing:PNG Compression LevelNumber between 0 and 9 that specifies the level of compression you want for the PNG file for graphics in VIs printed either interactively or with the Print:VI To HTML method. The quality of the graphic is not affected by the compression, but the graphic file size and speed of compression are affected by this value. Valid values range from 0 to 9 and balance file compression with speed. 0 designates no compression. 1 designates less compression, but faster speed. 9 designates high compression, but slower speed. If you enter –1, LabVIEW selects the best combination of speed and compression. Details
