LabVIEW Basics - 07 | Debugging

LabVIEW provides many options for debugging code. A subset of basic debugging methods are covered below.






  • A Broken Run Arrow indicates that code cannot compile due to an error.
    • Clicking the broken run arrow will display the error.
    • Double clicking the error will highlight the errors location on the diagram.

  • Highlight execution mode can be used to visualize code execution.
    • Keep in mind that the execution speed is much slower and may change the behavior of timing specific bugs.

  • Breakpoints can be used to stop application execution at a specified node.
    • Once a breakpoint is hit you can use Single Stepping, enable highlight execution or un-pause the application.

  • Probes can be used to monitor data wire values without changing the applications execution speed.
