Custom Probes

4 files

  1. Cyclic Table Probes

    A package for creating custom probes with "history"; showing the last N values rather than just the latest.  Values are displayed in a cyclic table, which wraps around automatically when it reaches the bottom of the display window.  Developed to support messaging systems, where messages can be handled too quickly for the eye to see with a last-value probe.  Included are some standard probes, for strings, variants, objects, and some numerics.  Also included is a "Text Variant" probe, for messaging using a cluster of such, and a "JKI State Queue" probe for use in designs using the JKI "state machine" template (see image).  But the expected use case is for very easily creating custom probes for whatever messages one is using (just modify one of the included probes).
    Also includes "Quick Timer" probes to rapidly time execution of portions of code to accuracies of as low as 10 microseconds.
    Now hosted on the LabVIEW Tools Network.
     
    Requires VIPM 2017 or later for install.

    Distribution:
    This code was downloaded from:
    http://lavag.org/index.php?app=downloads&showfile=19
    Description:
    A custom probe to put on a variant.
    It will create a tree based on the variant data, and populate the tree with the data, the attributes of the variant will be shown as well.
    The datatype description will determine the color of the tree items.
    Historical data is available as well.
    Version 2.0 introduces a Variant Tree XControl which can be used in any project. Located under the user.lib palette, it gives great flexibility to the programmer.
    The programmer has the possibility to give the end user permissions for the following actions:
    -Reset
    This will reset the whole tree contents
    -Traverse Variant Attributes
    This will enable/disable the traversion of variant attributes
    -Colorize
    This will enable/disable coloring of the actual datatype
    All of these customizations are available as properties/methods for the actual XControl as well, or you access them (while the owning VI is in edit mode) via the short cut menu.
    Installation method 1:
    Install the OGP file using VIPM (www.jkisoft.com/vipm)
    and you have a custom VariantProbe and xcontrol
    To use it add a probe to a variant datatype or to an array of variants.
    It can pause if the data changes, and will notify you if a change happens.
    Dependencies:
    The following OpenG packages should be installed:
    oglib_string>=2.6
    oglib_lvdata>=2.8
    oglib_comparison>=2.3
    oglib_error>=2.0
    Known issues:
    Is slow on large variants.

    Version History:
    2.4.1: Fixed issue #132: An array inside another array crashes the probe/XControl
    2.4: Immediate updating after changing of attributes
    Rebuild in LabVIEW 2011
    2.3: Fixed a bug that caused attributes not to be traversed on certain data-types
    2.2: Fixed a relinking bug
    2.1: Fixes a bug where unnamed cluster elements where used (http://lavag.org/topic/10269-discuss-variantprobe/page__view__findpost__p__67677)
    2.0: Added an XControl
    Show XControl in palette (under user.lib controls)
    Add coloring
    Add 'user permissions' on XControl
    Add Reset on XControl
    Add optionally traversing attributes on XControl
    Add optionally colorizing on XControl
    Add optionally restting on XControl
    1.2.0: Upgraded to LabVIEW 8.5 to use inheritance
    Support for Waveforms, timestamps and dynamic datatypes (thanks to Osvaldo)
    Added probe for an array of Variants
    Distributed as one .llb and added OGP installer
    If a Variant hasn't changed it's not decomposed (optimization)
    1.1.0: Support for attributes of variants
    1.0.1: Controls placed on a seperate pane
    Resize tree to upper pane
    Hide unused columns
    Limited maximum history length (default 10)
    Window resizable
