Worker User Library

Workers Tools Menu

The Worker User Library tool contains a library of functional Workers (i.e. Workers with Public APIs and pre-developed functionality) that you can use in your projects.

The Items in User Library list shows a list of functional Workers in the Worker User Library. Items in this list can exist either as a class (*.lvclass) or as a library (*.lvlib). Selecting an item from the list will display information about the Worker or library, shown in the information box on the right.

The Worker User Library also allows the inclusion of 3rd party items so that you can create your own libraries of functional Workers, either for re-use in your own projects or for distribution to customers. See section Config File Editor for information about how to add your own items to the Worker User Library.
