Gets the type of the project item as a string. Use the Type GUID Property property to return the type as a GUID.

Note The LabVIEW Datalogging and Supervisory Control Module supports this property in the Run-Time Engine.


The Type String can be used to get the value needed for the Type parameter of the ProjectItem class/Get All Descendents method. That method allows you to get all children in the Project that match that specific type. A list of valid Type String values and their descriptions are listed on the ProjectItem page.
