Name of the VI file. If a LabVIEW project library owns the VI, the property returns the qualified name of the VI, which includes the project library filename.

Note To obtain only the VI filename, use the VI Path property, which returns the path to the VI. Then use the Strip Path function.

You can write this property only if the VI has not been saved to disk.
