Issue Details

I am using the Vision Assistant Express VI, and I want to programmatically input the template file path for my Pattern Matching or Geometric Matching step. How do I do this? 


  1. Open the Vision Assistant Express VI for configuration. You can do this by right-clicking the VI and selecting Properties or by double-clicking the VI. 
  2. In the bottom right corner, click the Select Controls >> button.

  3. This will open a windows that displays a list of all possible controls (inputs) that you can select from. Place a checkmark next to Template File Path under the desired step (either Pattern Matching or Geometric Matching). 

  4. Select Finish. You should now have the option to select Template File Path as an input to the Vision Assistant Express VI.
