To launch the Type Properties dialog box, select Properties from the context menu on the root property or a subproperty of a custom data type you create.

The Type Properties dialog box contains the following tabs:

  • General—Use this tab to change the value, numeric format, flags, comments, and attributes for the property. Click the Advanced button and select Flags from the drop-down list to launch the Edit Flags dialog box, in which you can modify the property flags, or select Attributes from the drop-down list to launch the Attributes dialog box, in which you can modify the property attributes. Typically, you need to configure property flags only when you develop a relatively sophisticated custom data type.
  • Bounds—Use this tab to specify array sizes. This tab is visible only for array data types.
  • Version—Use this tab to edit the version information for the data type, to determine whether the data type is modified, to specify how TestStand resolves data type conflicts, and to specify the earliest version of TestStand that can use the type when you save the file for an earlier version of TestStand.
  • Cluster Passing—Use this tab to specify how TestStand passes instances of the data type as a cluster to LabVIEW code modules.
  • C Struct Passing—Use this tab to specify how TestStand passes instances of the data type as a structure to functions and methods in C/C++ DLL code modules.
  • .NET Struct Passing—Use this tab to define how TestStand passes instances of the data type as a struct to methods and properties in .NET assemblies.
