Error 1077 when Calling EnableHyperlinks Property Node in LabVIEW

Updated Dec 30, 2022

Issue Details

When trying to enable hyperlinks in the text string, the property node throws this error: 

Error 1077: LabVIEW: Invalid property value.

This will be true for implicit or explicit property nodes.


This property node is not intended to work with strings or the text in the string. Only free labels work with this property.

The intended way to add hyperlinking functionality is by using the Open URL in Default

Additional Information

This property was functionality introduced in LabVIEW 2015 as request from many of our users. An example of the intended use of this property can be found in the snippet below.

Note: You will have to add a free label to the front panel in since that is where references are pulled from.
