Where to find the path function

Go to solution

Ok newbie stupid question where in the heck is the Path function, I have it labeled as Log File and more than likely I probably got tired of trying to find it an copied it from another VI. I would have thought it would be under the File IO but I can't find that little icon anywhere?

I couldn't view your VI but most path functions can be found around here:

You can also press ctrl+space and type in the name.

Thanks, I think I figured it out, I had to go to the front panel in string paths, but I would have thought you couple place it from either front panel or block diagram.

I see, controls and indicators can only be placed on the front panel. Sometimes you can drop a constant down and right click it to change it to a control or indicator though.
