Best practice

Tips and tricks

  • Press Shift+Return to enable text wrapping at the current cursor position. Note that the string constant will stop growing horizontally when wrapping is enabled. The constant will instead start growing vertically. Press Shift+Return again, to prevent the string constant from growing further. A vertical scroll bar will appear if the text doesn't fit.
  • Drop a VI onto a string constant to insert the VI name.
