Use this page of the Prepare Example VIs for NI Example Finder dialog box to build the data (.bin3) file that stores the task-based browse paths, keywords, and other information about the example VIs you document. LabVIEW uses the .bin3 file to display example VIs in the NI Example Finder.

Note  The .bin3 file must reside in a directory within the labview\examples\exbins, labview\instr.lib, or labview\user.lib directory.

This page includes the following components:

  • Data file to create (bin3)—Determines the name of the .bin3 file.
    Note  LabVIEW reserves the following prefixes and you cannot use them when you name the .bin3 file: ms, test, lv, daq, cvi, tree, fr, de, ja, vi, im, dsc, rt, _, ko, zh, it, and es.
  • Directory that contains the examples—Determines the directory that contains the example VIs or projects you want to appear in the NI Example Finder.
  • Progress—Displays the progress of the data file build.
  • Build File—Creates the .bin3 file.
  • Cancel—Stops building the .bin3 file.
