Requires: Base Development System

Select Operate»Debug Application or Shared Library to display this dialog box.

Use this dialog box to select the stand-alone application or shared library you want to debug.

You must enable debugging in the build specification before you build the application or shared library. Click the Connect button to start debugging.

Note  When you debug applications and shared libraries, you cannot debug reentrant panels that an Open VI Reference function creates or reentrant panels that are entry points to LabVIEW-built shared libraries. You also cannot debug subVIs within Diagram Disable structures. SubVIs within Diagram Disable structures appear as question marks while you debug an application. However, because code in a Diagram Disable structure does not execute, this does not affect debugging.

This dialog box includes the following components:

  • Machine name or IP address—Specifies the network location of the computer that is running the application or shared library. The default is localhost.
  • Application or shared library—Specifies the applications and shared libraries available to debug. The ring control includes the names of all open stand-alone applications and shared libraries that were created with debugging enabled in the Application Builder. Click the Refresh button to update the ring control with the latest information.
  • Refresh—Updates the Application or shared library pull-down menu with the latest information about available applications and shared libraries.
  • Connection status—Displays messages about the status of the connection to the application or shared library to debug.
