Class: Variable Properties

To Use: Create a property.

Gets or sets the path to a shared variable inside another project or to the data item to which you want to bind the shared variable you are configuring.

The network path to shared variables in other projects consists of the computer name, the name of the library in which the shared variable resides, and the shared variable name: \\computer\library\project_variable. The network path to an NI Publish-Subscribe Protocol (NI-PSP) data item consists of the computer name, the name of the process in which the data item resides, and the data item name: \\computer\process\data_item.

This property is similar to the Network Path option on the Variable page of the Shared Variable Properties dialog box.
