Convert a section of a VI into a subVI by using the Positioning tool to select the section of the block diagram you want to reuse and selecting Edit»Create SubVI. An icon for the new subVI replaces the selected section of the block diagram. LabVIEW creates controls and indicators for the new subVI, automatically configures the connector pane based on the number of control and indicator terminals you selected, and wires the subVI to the existing wires.

Creating a subVI from a selection is convenient but still requires careful planning to create a logical hierarchy of VIs. Consider which objects to include in the selection and avoid changing the functionality of the resulting VI.
