A LabVIEW Class is a file with extension, *.lvclass. It is an XML file that stores information about the files owned by the library. The Project Explorer is used to view and edit these files. It is not recommended to edit the XML directly. The LabVIEW Class is a specialization of the LabVIEW Project Library but has extended behavior to contain data and support encapsulation and inheritance for Object-oriented programming.
Note: not all ProjectItem types are allowed in the LabVIEW Class for example:
- Unlike LabVIEW Project Libraries, LabVIEW Classes cannot contain nested libraries.
- Auto-populating Folders are not allowed but Virtual Folders are allowed.
