Owning Class: NI DataFinder

Requires: LabVIEW DataFinder Toolkit

Optimizes a custom property or removes a custom property from the list of optimized custom properties. You can use this method only when you are working with a DataFinder that is running on the same computer. The method does not support DataFinder federations.

If you assign TRUE to the optimize parameter, the DataFinder optimizes all the custom properties. Assign a property to the property parameter and assign the value TRUE to the optimize parameter. You can optionally specify a data type. The DataFinder then optimizes only this custom property with the specified data type. If you select Unknown as DataType, the DataFinder optimizes all selected properties for the data type with which the DataFinder indexed the custom property most frequently.

If you assign the value * to the property parameter and FALSE to the optimize parameter, the DataFinder removes all the optimized custom properties from the list of optimized custom properties. If you assign the value * to the property parameter, you can use only the data type Unknown.

Note  Searching for custom properties takes a little longer than searching for base properties.
Note  If you want to optimize custom properties that do not yet exist, you must specify the type of the custom properties.
Note  Only use the method Optimize Custom Properties for the configuration of the DataFinder My DataFinder.
