The In Place Element structure performs common data manipulation operations in a manner that does not require the LabVIEW compiler to make multiple data value copies or maintain those values in memory.

Complete the following steps to perform data manipulations by configuring an In Place Element structure.

  1. Add an In Place Element structure to the block diagram.
  2. Right-click the border of the In Place Element structure and select the border node you want to use. Each set of border nodes includes a border node on the left side of the structure and a border node on the right side of the structure.
  3. Add objects inside the In Place Element structure to manipulate the array, cluster, waveform, or variant element.
  4. Wire all required terminals on the border nodes. Otherwise, the VI is broken and will not run.

You can add multiple border nodes of various types to a single In Place Element structure.
