Requires: Base Development System
Class: VI Methods
To Use: Create a method.
Sets the lock state of a VI. If interactive is FALSE (default), you can use password to either unlock a password-protected VI or set the password of an unprotected VI. If interactive is TRUE, LabVIEW ignores password and displays a dialog box that prompts you to change the lock state.
|Lock State||Yes||Specifies the level of editing permission of the VI.
|Interactive||No||Specifies whether to display a dialog box that prompts you to change the lock state. The default is FALSE.|
|Password||No||If lock state is Password-protected, password is the new password. If you are changing lock state from Password-protected, password is the old password. The default is an empty string.|
|Put in Cache||No||If Lock State is Password-protected, Put in Cache specifies whether to place the new password in the cache. The default is FALSE.|
