Short Name: Exec.AllowDebug

Requires: Base Development System

Class: VI Properties

To Use: Create a property.

If TRUE, you can use debugging tools on the VI. For example, you can set breakpoints, create probes, enable execution highlighting, and single-step through execution. Set this property to FALSE to disable use of debugging tools, reduce memory requirements, and to improve performance slightly for the VI.

This property is similar to the Allow debugging option on the Execution page of the VI Properties dialog box.

Note  Writing this property causes the VI to be recompiled. Writing TRUE causes extra code and data to be generated for the VI. This code and data enables LabVIEW to set breakpoints and single-step through the VI. Writing FALSE removes this code and data, reducing the total size of the VI.

When you debug applications and shared libraries, you cannot debug reentrant panels that an Open VI Reference function creates. You also cannot debug reentrant panels that are entry points to LabVIEW-built shared libraries.
