Name: Scripting Sandbox
Type: Right Click Framework Plugin
LabVIEW version: 8.2
Scripting Sandbox is a simple Right-Click-Framework plugin for quick creating and using of flexible scripting VI's without implementing additional RCF plugin. In other words it's a plugin for making plugins which you don't want to distribute, but rather to use internally for work automation in quick and dirty way without any error handling etc. You simply define a directory for storing so called SandScript VIs. RCF menu is being updated according to the content of this directory. SandScript VI has to follow provided template. When you invoke certain script, RCF simply passes whole current "Active VI" cluster to it (VI state, panel and diagram references, array with selected objects and mouse position)
Preferably use VIP package and VI Package Manager. Alternatively download ZIP, extract to \resource\JKI\RCF\Plugins\ and restart RCF
Few example SandScript VIs are included in Scripts subdirectory. To see them working, copy them to your scripts directory (defined within RCF plugin options)
If you have any problems with this code or want to suggest features:
please go to lavag.org and Navigate to LAVA > Resources > Code Repository (Certified) and
search for the "Scripting Sandbox" support page.
Initial release of the code.
