The To More Generic Class function typecasts a reference, such as a control or a type definition, to a more generic class in the inheritance hierarchy.

For example, if Class A inherits from Class B, the function upcasts a variable of type A to a variable of type B.

You can use the To More Generic Class function for casting any class hierarchy in LabVIEW, including VI Server refnums, .NET/ActiveX refnums, and LabVIEW Classes.
