When you load a new prototype for any adapter, each adapter uses the following guidelines to copy the configured argument values for parameters from the old prototype to the new prototype:

Adapter Rules (in Order of Priority) for Mapping Arguments
LabVIEW
  1. Map arguments based on parameter name and compatible type.
  2. Map arguments based on connector pane position and compatible type.
  3. Map arguments based on compatible type, same input or output direction, and matching the prefix of the old parameter name with the new parameter name.
  4. Map arguments based on compatible type, same input or output direction, and matching the prefix of the new parameter name with the old parameter name.
  5. Use the map the step type specifies, if available.
LabWindows/CVI
  1. Map arguments based on parameter name and compatible type.
  2. Map arguments based on position and compatible type.
C/C++ DLL
.NET
ActiveX/COM
Sequence
HTBasic Does not specify any parameters or mapping rules.
LabVIEW NXG
  1. Map arguments based on parameter name and compatible type.
  2. Map arguments based on connector pane position and compatible type.
  3. Map arguments based on compatible type, same input or output direction, and matching the prefix of the old parameter name with the new parameter name.
  4. Map arguments based on compatible type, same input or output direction, and matching the prefix of the new parameter name with the old parameter name.
  5. Use the map the step type specifies, if available.
Python Adapter Map arguments based on parameter name and position.
