Issue Details

When running and debugging an application in LabWIndows/CVI I used the values of variables when I hovered my mouse over them, but now the values are not showing, why is this happening?

Solution

To have the data tooltips appear when hovering over a variable it is necessary to enable the option, which is found in Options->Environment, where the Enable data tooltips option has to be enabled.
