Short Name: Adapt Nodes

Requires: VI Scripting

Class: VI Methods

To Use: Create a method.

Allows LabVIEW to replace overloaded nodes with more appropriate implementations. For example, if you script an Add function and wire a Matrix control to it, LabVIEW breaks the wire. If you call Adapt Nodes, the Add function might be replaced with a Matrix Add VI. Operator overloading will not occur during scripting. You must call this method for Overloading to happen.
