Create descriptions for objects, such as controls and indicators, to describe the purpose of the object and to give users instructions for using the object. The object description appears in the Context Help window when you move the cursor over the object and in VI documentation you generate. Tip strips are brief descriptions that appear when you move the cursor over an object while a VI runs.
Complete the following steps to enter a description and a tip strip for an object.
|Note You can enter a description for a VI or function located on the Functions palette but you can only view the description in the Description and Tip dialog box. The description will not appear in the Context Help window.|
|Note The Tip text box is available only for controls, indicators, or constants. You cannot enter tip information for VIs or functions.|
