Installs a range of icons to the LabVIEW Data Directory folder (osdatadir) for use with the LabVIEW 2009 Icon Editor. Icons include icon templates, LVOOP banner and object icons and commonly used glyphs.
The LabVIEW Data Directory (osdatadir), by default, is located at C:\Users\(User Name)\Documents\LabVIEW Data for Windows Vista and Windows 7 and C:\Documents and Settings\(User Name)\My Documents\LabVIEW Data for Windows XP.
LabVIEW 2009, by default, stores Glyphs in the (osdatadir)\Glyphs folder and icon templates in the (osdatadir)\Icon Templates folder.
For this package the installation locations are sub folders within these folders:
Commonly used glyphs - (osdatadir)\Glyphs\_glyphs
LVOOP Templates - (osdatadir)\Icon Templates\_lvoop icons
Icon Templates - (osdatadir)\Icon Templates\_template icons
An underscore is used to alphabetically rank the folders, moving them to the top of the list in the LabVIEW Icon Editor.
Menu items are also installed for LabVIEW under File >> Icons to open the default folder locations from LabVIEW.
Menu selections include:
File >> Icons >> Template Icons - opens the (osdatadir)\Icon Templates folder
File >> Icons >> Glyphs - opens the (osdatadir)\Glyphs folder
This is makes it easy to open and browse all images from LabVIEW. Menu items are installed under (LabVIEW)\Wizard\Icons folder.
Installation and instructions:
Install package using VIPM.
Restart LabVIEW for the Menu Items to take effect.
Open the Icon Editor to view the installed icons
Browsw the File >> Icons menu item to open the folder locations from LabVIEW.
Due to no support for osdatadir in VIPM and OGPB and the fact that this location is not LabVIEW Versioned, the user should only install the package in one version of LabVIEW. (As of LabVIEW 2009, this is the only option).
