How to password lock an entire LLB of VIs

How can a password be assigned to lock an entire LLB of VIs? I have a great number of VI's that I have placed into a few LLB's. I would like to lock them with a password without having to load and save each one individually. Is there a way to do this?

 

Many Thanks...

No. But you can write a program to make the change to the VIs in the LLB. Just be sure that you also have your VIs backed up somewhere outside of a library. If a LLB gets corrupted you lose all the VIs in the library.

Could you point me to the names of a few key VIs I'll need to list the VIs in the LLB and change the password?

To read the contents of a LLB, use the same functions you would to list the contents of a directory. For setting the password, use the Lock State.Set and Save.Instrument VI methods.

If you have labview 8.x you can make or build  a source distribution. If you do it correct. You can make a mirror of your current project, but with password. I find it more convenient working this way. See picture.   


Besides which, my opinion is that Express VIs Carthage must be destroyed deleted

Well do not tell this to anybody! If you do I must hunt you down, and put you to silence. If this is not enough. I will install Windows ME as OS on your computerSmiley Very Happy
