Many of the presenters at NI Week promoted the LabVIEW Idea Exchange here.

I have been reading, voting and posting to the idea exchange for awhile and just posted several new ideas/complaints that I thought of while attending NI Week. I challenge all LAVA members to visit the exchange and vote for the ideas you agree with (especially mine ;) ). And if you don't agree, post a comment and tell me why!
Then post your own ideas so we can all vote of them too.

The more feedback we give, the better LabVIEW will be in the future.

Well heck, if we all vote for each other's ideas all our ideas will float to the top and LAVA will be defining the future of Labview. ;)

John Lokanis, which is your idea? Can you provide us with a direct link?



My idea is for True .NET Support

http://forums.ni.com...-p/977884#A2106


I basically think that NI should spend some more time and effort making LabVIEW inter operate with other programming languages and technologies better because I hope to use LabVIEW to co-develop applications already written in other languages!

I liked your .NET idea! Kudos!

Hi all,

/Advertising mode=on

I've posted a few ideas on the LabVIEW Idea Exchange if you think they're worth, please vote :)

- "Open Private Callees" and "Open Public Callees" options from the project window

- "Open all Callers" option from the project window

- More exclusion settings for the VI Hierarchy

- Bad wire gets cleared automatically when it can (when you re-wire, the bad part is removed)

Here are all 16 ideas I posted. Obviously, all of them are brilliant, so you should go vote for them (although some, and I won't say which, will already probably be in LV 2010, so no need to vote for those).

Here are my ideas (all but one super fantastic).
And my latest:
Add drag and drop support for OS files on any control.

I wonder why this hasn't been requested before or implemented before.

I would like to be able to have hooks into the Dynamic Dispatch and Static Dispatch templates, just like we got for data member access :)

Anyone seen the Data Acquisition idea exchange?
I like the idea for a DAQmx simulation API.

Two new ideas:
1) Change the configuration of parallel loops
2) Allow multi-dimensional arrays to be reshaped to 1D arrays using the In Place Element Structure

Here are two ideas I have had with respect to X-Controls:

X-Control Display Icon (so an .xctl looks good in the Palettes)



Show X-Control in User.lib Auto Generated Controls Palette
