  1. This is a named unbundler for clusters; but instead of taking in a cluster value and outputting element values, it takes in a reference to a cluster and outputs references to elements. Sadly, it can't handle a cluster containing a latching boolean. Unbundle Refs By Name_xnode 1_0_0_1.zip

  2. Here is the new revamped UI of NI TestStand 2020: Maybe it's just me, but I find it very difficult to work with the new color scheme of NI TestStand. My eyes are burning after few minutes... Am I the only one? Here is the default UI colors of VS Code, the super popular code editor from MS. So much less stress for the eyes. Hoping for dark mode NI TestStand in a near future...

  7. I'm sure you'll get plenty of different opinion on that topic. My rule is to only use SP1 versions for customer release (not sure NI will continue using the 202X and 202X SP1 pattern though).
