If you would like to create an alias there are a couple of different
options. You can use property nodes, global/local variables, LV2 type
variables. The most efficient are property nodes, however, they can
only be used within the same vi. If you need to get values from
different vi you will need to use global variables. There is
information on the DevZone for using <a href="
">property nodes</a> and <a href="
">variables</a>. Have a great day.
