Issue Details

At what point is the LabVIEW block diagram compiled?


When you make a change to your LabVIEW block diagram LabVIEW recompiles the VI the next time you perform one of the following actions:
  • Saving the VI
  • Running the VI
  • Building an application that requires the VI
  • Deploying the VI to a real-time operating system
  • Loading a VI last saved in a previous version of LabVIEW or on a different platform.
