Method (object-oriented programming)
Methods in LabVIEW
LabVIEW distinguishes between two types of methods: dynamic methods and static methods. A static method is a simple subVI call, which LabVIEW has had since its inception. A method is called "static" because the subVI node always calls the same subVI. In contrast, a dynamic method is a set of VIs. A dynamic subVI node uses dynamic dispatching to call one of the VIs in the set, but exactly which one is not known until run time.
The accessibility of methods in LabVIEW is defined by their access scope.
