The application builder (AB) is a part of the LabVIEW Project environment, it has the possibilities to distribute your code in various ways:
- Source distributions
- Web services
Depending on the LabVIEW version you have one or more of the above options might be missing.
The application builder has several interesting advanced uses
You can use a VI inside vi.lib that can build without user interaction. The VI is located in <vi.lib>\AppBuilder\BuildTargetBuildSpecification.vi. This VI takes a project path and optionally a build and target name as parameters.
Inside the application builder LabVIEW uses several symbolic paths to have envorinment dependent variables.
||Name of the project
||Automatically place the build in a folder that is named after the project|
||Name of the (Real-Time) target
