Learn about VI Tester in 5 Minutes

Recommended Posts

You have a few minutes and just want to learn what VI Tester is about.

 

VI Tester helps you perform unit testing on your VIs. Unit testing is a way to validate that your code works at the lowest (i.e. unit) levels. In LabVIEW, the lowest level of testing is the VI. When you write effective unit tests you get two benefits: 1) you can verify that when you modify code, you don't create unintended bugs 2) when your tests fail, you can quickly pinpoint the root cause of your failure.

 

To start, you launch VI Tester window from the LabVIEW Tools Menu.

Next, open a project file that contains unit tests. To run the tests, you can press the 'Run all tests' button. You can easily review the test status and see a log that was generated while running the tests.

The following video shows just how easy it is to run tests in VI Tester.

 

 

VI Tester makes it really easy to run unit tests on your LabVIEW code.

 

If you have more time, why not try installing VI Tester and then running some unit tests to see for yourself?
