Short Name: ControlIndex
Requires: Base Development System
Class: Control Properties
To Use: Create a property.
Gets the index of the control or indicator you specify. If the control or indicator for which you want to get the index does not have a terminal on the block diagram, this property returns an error.
(Real-Time Module) Use the Get Control Index by Name method instead of the Control Index property to get control indexes. You can use the Control Index property on LabVIEW Real-Time systems only while connected to the RT target from the LabVIEW project. As a result, this property can work in the development environment but does not work in RT built applications.
