LabVIEW version:

Created and tested with LabVIEW 8.2


JKI Right-Click Framework

LabVIEW 8.2 or higher


The Code Capture Tool 2.0 can create a VI snippet in LV versions as old as 7.0; this plugin lets you extract them in versions 8.2 and above. Standard conditions apply - you won't be able to extract a snippet that was created in a newer version of LabVIEW.


Extract the zip file into [LabVIEW]\Resource\JKI\RCF\Plugins\GetSnippet and restart the RCF framework. Once installed, select a snippet, activate the RCF and select GetSnippet and your decoration will be replaced by the underlying code.

Known Issues:

Hardly anybody makes snippets in anything except LabVIEW 2009. :( The program works fine, though.


Ton Plomp and Yair gave us the Code Capture Tool, without which there would be no need to extract snippets in LabVIEW < 2009.

Darin.K showed me how to get a VI from a snippet. Ton helped me improve my implementation.

Change Log:

v1.0.0: Initial release of the code.
