LVOOP (pronounced "el vee oop") is the native implementation of by-value object orientated programming that appeared in LabVIEW 8.20. LVOOP stands for LabVIEW Object Oriented Programming.

  • See the LVOOP Frequently Asked Questions page, here on the LabVIEW Wiki
  • NI has a comprehensive LabVIEW Object-Oriented Programming FAQ for their native LVOOP (native by-value OOP) here. It includes links to many other online resources, including the NI Week presentations that the NI R&D team have given to customers.
  • There are multiple example programs that ship with LV. They are located in <labview>exampleslvoop
  • The National Instruments LVOOP FAQ references the LVOOP White Paper several times. If you're an experienced LabVIEW developer, you'll probably enjoy it more than other forms of documentation.
  • Christina Rogers (National Instruments R&D) has some excellent discussion about refactoring code, specifically the Getting Started Window, to use LabVIEW classes. See her blog at and look at the posts in August 2006.
  • The LVOOP Design Patterns is a work-in-progress that Aristos Queue (National Instruments R&D) is working on to help new LVOOP customers choose architectures appropriate to different types of software projects.
