Short Name: Get All Descendents
Requires: Base Development System
Class: ProjectItem Methods
To Use: Create a method.
Recursively returns project items that appear under the referenced item in the project tree. For example, if you call this method on project library A that contains an inner project library B, the method returns items owned both by library A and library B.
For this method, the term descendents does not refer to children classes of the referenced project item.
|Type||Yes||Specifies which kind of project items this method returns.
The following values are the most common Type values:
To determine the value of Type for a project item that is not listed above, use the Type String property to programmatically return the type of the item.
This method checks for exact matches to the Type you specify. For example, if you specify a Type of Library, this method returns only .lvlib project items, not LabVIEW classes or XControls. Furthermore, if you specify a Type of VI, the method does not return private data controls or XControl VIs because these specialized VIs have their own type.
Some of the values listed above are supported only on certain LabVIEW Development Systems. Refer to ni.com/labview for more information about LabVIEW Development Systems.
|ExcludeDependencies||No||Specifies whether to ignore items under the Dependencies folder if the referenced item is a project. If the referenced item is a target, this input specifies whether to exclude items under the target. If the referenced item is neither a project nor a target, this input has no effect on the output of this method.|
|ExcludeBuilds||No||If TRUE, does not return Build Specifications or any items under Build Specifications. The default is FALSE.|
|ExcludeTargets||No||If TRUE, does not return any targets or any items under targets. The default is FALSE.|
