Contains a Quick Drop Plugin Tool Menu Item which adds a State to a JKI State Machine. This tool will allow you to create either a new state in a section or a complete new section whilst automatically handling the template's syntax. If a new state is selected then it is added after the current visible state and the current section's frame is used as the template frame. If a new section is added it is added after the current visible section and the Core frame is used as the template frame. Correct Syntax (e.g. proper name, single spaces) are forced but can be overriden (e.g. to achieve capitalisation) using a period "." at the end of the text entry.
This package will install the quick drop plugin to LabVIEW\resource\dialog\QuickDrop\plugins and the tool menu item to LabVIEW\project\JGCODE ToolsSupport files are installed at vi.lib\addons\_JGCODE Toolkits\insert_state_into_jki_state_machine. See here to learn more about creating your own keyboard shortcuts using Quick Drop Plugins.
Note: This tool assumes that the template structure of the JKI State Machine will not be altered in any way.
Installation and Instructions:
Install package using VIPM.
*Ensure that the j.vi does not already exist as a quick drop plugin, if so you will have to manual manipulate the install.
If dependencies exist, then install provided .vipc file.
If the VI contains only one JKI State Machine then just run the plugin otherwise, use the mouse to select the case structure you want to manipulate.
Press Ctrl + Space to activate Quick Drop on this VI
Enter the name of the State in the Quick Drop Combo Box
Press Ctrl + J to create a new State
Press Ctrl + Shift + J to create a new Section
Select the item from the menu
