Right-click a Property Node or Invoke Node and select Select Class».NET»Browse to display this dialog box.

Use this dialog box to link to static properties and methods or select a class for invoking.

This dialog box includes the following components:

  • Assembly—Lists all assemblies registered in the Global Assembly Cache (GAC) and previously referenced private assemblies. Click the Browse button to access private assemblies.

    The .NET Common Language Runtime (CLR) uses configuration settings to determine the assembly version to load. These configuration settings might override your request for a specific assembly version. For example, the system administrator can configure your computer to load version instead of If you then try to load version, the .NET CLR promotes the assembly version to LabVIEW also launches a dialog box that notifies you of the promotion.
  • Browse—Displays the Select the .NET Assembly to Open dialog box, from where you can browse to the private assemblies you want to open.
  • Objects—Displays the objects available in the assembly you select.
  • Show Creatable Objects Only—Causes the Objects listbox to display only creatable objects.

    COM/ActiveX utilizes interfaces, not classes. You can specify which implementation you want for the interface. Selecting Show Creatable Objects Only displays all implementations that are available. The object you select is the implementation of the interface while the object shown in the LabVIEW block diagram is the interface itself. If you do not select Show Creatable Objects Only, LabVIEW displays both the implementations and the interfaces.
Tip  If you encounter problems loading a particular assembly or accessing objects in an assembly, debug the assembly call or refer to the .NET Assemblies in Memory dialog box to verify that the correct version of the assembly is in memory.
