custom error codes

Go to solution

A few years back I created a list of custom error codes for my project..and forgotten what I did.

Since then I want to add an additional code.  I found the file.."xxx-errors.txt" that I used.

1) How does Labview 2012 know to use that file??  I don't see a path to it anywhere in the vi.

2) can I just go in and edit the txt file by adding my new error code if I follow the pattern in the current txt file??

You should store custom error files into a special folder:


When launching LV, it will load these files.

If you change or add files, you have to restart LV for these changes/additions to show up.


For modification of error files, you should use the Edit Error Codes tool in Tools >> Advanced.
