Issue Details

I am using the LabVIEWParameter.Category property to get the types of parameters for a TestStand step that uses the LabVIEW adapter and I receive a value which is not mentioned in the TestStand help for this property.

Is there a list with all possible values for this property?

Solution

From TestStand 2016 onwards, additional types have been added to the property which have not been added to the corresponding help file.

This is the complete list of possible LabVIEW types and the corresponding value of the LabVIEWParameter.Category property:

LVParamCategory_Numeric0
LVParamCategory_String1
LVParamCategory_Boolean2
LVParamCategory_Cluster3
