Finding unsupported Properties/Methods

I'm about to upgrade from LV8.2.1 to LV2013 and then there is a lot of unsupported properties and methods in the new version.

It would be very nice to have the possibility to find those unsupported stuff.


Actually NI seems to need that function too. smileywink:

Take a look at this thread I made a while ago.

VI Analyzer might already have such a test. If not, it should probably be easy enough to add one by doing something like this (I haven't checked that it actually works):




You could probably also run it yourself.

It would be nice have it as part of the VI Analyzer.

The VI Analyzer Upgrade Tests will detect, among other things, the use of deprecated properties/methods:

Hi Darren

I installed the package and run the test on"Three Button Dialog" but it didt'n find the two property nodes that is unsupported.



Why is that?

Looks like the deprecated functionality test only looks for properties/methods that were deprecated in the specific LabVIEW release you're upgrading to. I think in previous versions of the VI Analyzer Upgrade Test Suite we just flagged any deprecated property/method that was found.

If you want to find any deprecated property/method in your code, you can use the Deprecated Functionality test available in the VI Analyzer Enthusiasts community here:
