LabVIEW.ini location for TestStand with LabVIEW runtime engine

Go to solution

I am creating a test with TestStand using LabVIEW.  I added background and foreground blinking colors to the LabVIEW.ini file.  When I switched to the LabVIEW runtime engine, it returned these colors to default.  If I were making an executable in LabVIEW, I would modify the application ini file with these values.  When TestStand is running with the LabVIEW runtime engine, where do these values go?  I was thinking maybe the TestExec.ini file, but can't figure out where I would put them or if the syntax is the same.

It depends what user interface you're using. If it's a LabVIEW built user interface, you can add it to TestExec.ini similar to LabVIEW.ini. If you're not using a LabVIEW built UI, you'll need to add an LVRT section:

blinkFG= [color in HEX]
blinkBG= [color in HEX] 

 Using LabVIEW INI Tokens with VIs Called from TestStand


Make sure you restart the application after you make changes to the ini file.
