I need to get the subpanel reference by using vi refence wire of the vi inserted into that subpanel. Is that possible?

Im using LV 2016

As far as I know, you cannot directly get the subpanel refnum from the inserted VI refnum since this VI does not "know" it is being inserted into a subpanel.


You will have to pass it as an input/control of the inserted VI, or use a communication mechanism (like a queue).


However, I am curious why you would need to manipulate the subpanel from the inserted VI.

TPTB ruled that this is a terrible idea: VI property subpanel ref - NI Community. Didn't get much support either...


See that thread for some 'solutions'.
