Open Workspace Tool Step

Hello, 

 

I'd like to use "Open Workspace Tool Step" (http://zone.ni.com/reference/en-XX/help/372846L-01/veristand/open_ws_tool_step/) in a stimulus profile in order to open my custom tool (called Alarm Monitor Tool) created according to this document, http://www.ni.com/tutorial/14421/en/.

 

The problem is that I cannot select the main .vi (Alarm Monitor.vi) included in the 'Alarm Monitor Tool.llb'.

Re: Open Workspace Tool Step

That's a good catch! Hopefully NI will see this and fill in a corrective action request (feel free to contact their support too) so you can at least select something else than a VI in the filters in the file dialog.

 

An easy workaround (and good practice) is to distribute your custom tool code as 2 pieces:

- The "main" launchable VI

- The support LLB that contains all the needed dependencies for the main to work.

 

You can apply this to custom workspace objects too.
