Short Name: Auto Err Handling

Requires: Base Development System

Class: VI Properties

To Use: Create a property.

If TRUE, enables automatic error handling for a VI.

By default, LabVIEW automatically handles any error that occurs when a VI runs by suspending execution, highlighting the subVI or function where the error occurred, and displaying an error dialog box.

This property is similar to the Enable automatic error handling in new VIs option on the Block Diagram page of the Options dialog box and the Enable automatic error handling option on the Execution page of the VI Properties dialog box.

Note  The LabVIEW Run-Time Engine does not support automatic error handling.
