I'm attempting to profile my program and would like to observe buffer allocations.
However when I go to Tools > Profile > Show Buffer Allocations... the options is grayed out. I can't seem to select it / run this tool no matter what I do.
Is there some trick to this that I'm missing?
Thanks in advance!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Any idea why this option may be unavailable to me?
Or steps for me to be able to use this tool?
ASSUMING: you are using the tools menu from the Block Diagram. There aren't any buffers on the Front Panel so, you might be seriously disappointed trying that there. 😉
I would suspect either that the VI properties are set to disable debugging or you have a Clone instance open rather than the VI original.
Ctrl+M would switch to the VI Original.
Ctrl+I opens the VI Properties editor. If the VI is Inlined you will have to deselect that before you can Enable Debugging.
Otherwise: Ctrl+E opens the Block Diagram unless it is protected.
Thank you so much for this!
I was attempting to launch the tool from the main program window, instead of from each VI individually.
