If you move a class to a new machine or reinstall LabVIEW on the current machine, the default probe users of the class can use is the generic probe. However, if you create a custom member probe for a LabVIEW class and set the member probe as the default probe of the class, when the class is distributed to a new machine users can use the custom probe you set as the default probe.

You can set a custom probe you created as the default probe for LabVIEW class data types. Complete the following steps to set a custom probe as a default probe for a LabVIEW class.

  1. Add the custom probe to the LabVIEW class if the probe is not already a member.
  2. Right-click the LabVIEW class and select Properties from the shortcut menu. The Class Properties dialog box appears.
  3. Select Probes from the Categories list.
  4. Select the name of the custom probe you created from the Default Probe pull-down menu.
  5. Click OK to close the Class Properties dialog box.
Note  The probe must be a member of the LabVIEW class.
