You cannot edit the label of a subVI. However, as you create VI descriptions, you can edit function labels to reflect the use of the function on the block diagram. For example, you can use the label of an Add function to document what quantities are added or why they are added at that point on the block diagram.
|Tip Owned labels cannot be edited at run time. If you want to programmatically edit these labels, replace each label with a caption. Captions look the same and can be edited at run time.|
Complete the following steps to edit a free or owned label.
|Note (Linux) When editing any control with text in it, such as a text label, you can use the middle mouse button to paste the most recently highlighted text without having to copy or cut the text first.|
|Note You can complete edit operations with the <Enter> key on the keyboard if you place a checkmark in the End text entry with Enter key checkbox in the Environment page of the Options dialog box.|
