Issue Details

When using the Unit Test Framework Toolkit, for some of my cases, the values I have for inputs aren't being passed into the VI. How do I fix this?

Solution

Depending on how the tests were created, some or all of the inputs could be set with a value of "IGNORE" internally, meaning that the test will not change whatever value was last passed to that input.

The quickest way to repair this is to open the .lvtest file in an external editor and replace every instance of "IGNORE" next to an input with "SET". After saving, the test should behave as expected.
