Give VI Scripting write access to modify function output configurations/datatypes

Say I have a VI with an arithmetic function: add, subtract, negate, etc...


I would like the ability to programmatically change the output configuration of the function through scripting. Right now (as I understand) you can only read the datatype of the output terminal but not set it. I specifically want to be able to control the fixed-point configuration of the output of these functions through VI Scripting.


[admin edit]: I added an attachment to this post pertaining to the first comment on the thread (since comments cannot contain attachments).

Example Gatekeeper

I would like for LabVIEW R&D to make an effort to expose more private properties in VI Server as public/scripting. In the meantime, I have attached a VI to your original post (saved in LabVIEW 2015) that exposes all the properties of the 'OverridableParameterTerminal' class of VI Server. If you cast the output terminal of your function to that class, you should be able to access all those properties to be able to set the Output Configuration.

Excellent. I will try this out. Thanks for the help!
