    François Normandin
    --see readme file for contact information.
    Description:
    This code is provided to help manage labview classes.
    By opening a reference to a lvclass file, this API allows easy access to Private Data Cluster, Description, Class version, Icon, Tags, Class Items List,
    Ancestor Hierarchy, Addition and removal of files to the class, Copying and saving classes. It can be the basis for cloning a class, applying standardized
    icons to all VIs in the class, accessing tags and descriptions or to follow different versions.
    Dependancies:
    oglib_file-2.8
    Change Log:
    1.0.0: Initial release of the code.
    1.0.1: Correction of installer code (second copy operation reversed)
    1.0.2: Expose "Element (Build)" to Connector Pane in "IncrementClassVersion.vi"
    Known Bugs:
    1- The "Close.vi" uses a merge error with the first error from a close reference. This will discard any error on input to the VI if there is an error from the close reference.

    Author:
    François Normandin
    -- see readme file for contact information
    website: www.monpapyrus.net/LabVIEW/index.html
    Description:
    Class for management of password objects. The object contains a MD5 encrypted password.
    Methods are of two types depending on source of password. From non-encrypted or encrypted sources.
    All vis are documented. There is an example VI that shows how to use encrypted & non-encrypted versions.
    Encryption level provides a mean to recursively encrypt many times over, resulting in better security against
    rainbow tables attack. Initialize once with Password_Create method.
    [Non-encrypted source]
    Source is from a dialog box or equivalent. The password is not encrypted at the moment the object is created.
    Password_Create method will create a new object, encrypt the password and store it.
    [Encrypted source]
    Source is from a file or tcp-ip connection. The password is already encrypted at the moment the object is created.
    Password_CreateEncrypted method will create a new object and store the password.
    Dependencies:
    Uses the following OpenG toolkits:
    oglib_md5-1.6-1
    GOOP3®
    OpenG: <http://wiki.openg.org/Main_Page>

    Change Log:
    1.0.0: Initial release of the code.
    1.0.1: Readme modifications
    1.1.0: Added encryption level and modified naming convention for dynamically accessible methods.

    Description:
    This package contains a class to quickly create controls programmatically based on templates.
    Instructions:
    After installing package with VIPM, refresh palettes if VIPM is not set to refresh automatically.
    Use palettes.
    On LabVIEW restart, a Tools Menu shortcut gives access to a Control Generator GUI (Tools >> UI Tools >> Control Generator)
    Known Issues:
    The control creator provided under "Tools" menu is not yet complete:
    - It doesn't batch process controls yet.
    - The "pure white" (xFFFFFF) is drawn as black (use FEFEFE instead... that's close, and I really don't know why!)
    Acknowledgements:
    Wojciech Golebiowski for his BitMan library (Bitmap Manipulation).
    History:
    v1.4.0: Removed a self-conflicting dependency on new installation
    v1.3.0: Renamed package and moved templates to vi.lib to remove the need to rely on system files (outside of LabVIEW folder structure).
    Upgraded source code to 2012. Older versions not supported anymore.
    Changed the namespacing and added an incompatibility with previous versions of this package.
    Integrated into the palette of UI Tools (base package on LVTN 1.3.0.59+)
    Fixed issue with scaling factor for True decal button
    v1.2.0: Migrated to VIP file type (from OGP)
    v1.1.0: Added functionality for creating different decals for True and false states.
    This release is untested with the rest of the package.
    It is strictly aimed at providing a temporary solution to creating custom controls with different decals for True and False states.
    The package works as standalone, but might introduce some bugs in the parent package "UI Tools".
    Do no install unless you absolutely need the new functionality right away.
    Keep the latest UI Tools Addon Control Class package at hand to fall back in case it breaks functionality.
    v1.0.15: Added "Save to previous version"
    Added "Drop on Front Panel" and tested to work in projects or outside projects.
    Added some configuration file entries and more error checking.
    v1.0.14: Initial release of the code. (8.6)

    LabVIEW Versions:
    Created and tested with LabVIEW 8.6
    Dependencies:
    lava_lib_ui_tools >=1.0.36
    Description:
    This package contains classes for manipulating Trees with some enhanced features.
    It consists of a set of VIs to create tree objects and associating tags with data in a variant format.
    Includes:
    - includes some icons from FamFamFam (see license in _Symbols directory) for demo purposes. You do not need these icons if you use the Tree OOP classes in your work.
    Instructions:
    After installing package with VIPM, refresh palettes if VIPM is not set to refresh automatically.
    You will find the palettes in the UI Tools functions palette (user.lib)
    Known Issues:
    - No drag and drop functionalities included. You'll have to do that on your own if wanted. (for now anyway)
    - Arrays will be shown has a succession of Unnamed items. Recursive VI provides a way to put it on
    a single line within brackets, but has been removed to provide backward compatibility to 8.6. An add-on
    will be posted for LV 9.0+ users.
    - The Children & Parents Symbols synchronization works only for Symbol indexes 1-2-3 (True-False-Mixed).
    - When adding an item on the same level as an existing one, it gets added in front. Expected behavior would
    be to have it added afterwards.
    - Modifying a child's data does not recursively modify the parents' data (cluster variants). This will
    become obvious once you try the framework... This functionality will be kept in my mind for future improvements.

    Known Issues:
     
    1- ooWriter: 
    Styles integration is incomplete. Needs to have a real "style" class created that will comply with current standard in RGT.
    Adding an image is not working correctly: it is embedded in a paragraph instead of being standalone.
     
    2- ooCalc: no integration yet, but rather similar to ooWriter in principle. (All the roadblocks will be cleared by ooWriter)
     
    3- This code has been done with LV2009. I see no problem for using with LV 8.2 and up, it's just a matter of 
    saving for previous version and distribute. This will be done at a later date.

  11. LVOOP Event Handler

    LVOOP Event Handler v1.0.1
    Copyright © 2010, François Normandin.
    All rights reserved.
    Author:François Normandin
    Contact Info: Contact via PM on www.lavag.org
    LabVIEW Versions:
    Created and tested with LabVIEW 2009
    Dependencies:
    openg_appcontrol 2.10
    openg_error 2.3
    Description:
    This is a package that provides the framework for a LVOOP Subscribable Event Handler.
    Processes can dynamically register new events and list the classes that are allowed to subscribe to it.
    Once a TopProcess takes ownership of the Handler, it manages a Global Stop event and a Handler Activity event to inform subscribers that a new event has been registered with the handler. All subscribers can then get a list of all the events they are allowed to subscribe to.
    Everything is done through events with LVOOP LVObject as a backbone. The subscriber will then be free to implement its interpretation of the subscribe event content when received, by casting to the known object types.
    Instructions:
    After installing package with VIPM, refresh palettes if VIPM is not set to refresh automatically.
    Use palette to find the LVOOP Event Handler. Select the Event Handler VI and drop it in your application.
    There is a test program that shows how data is exchanged between three dummy classes. You can open the front panel
    of the Event Handler to see what are the actual allowed subscribers for which event owner.
    Known Issues:
    Acknowledgements:
    History:
    v1.0.0: Initial release of the code. (2009)
    v1.0.1: Fixed a wrong connection with the "Preserve RunTime Class" primitive where children classes were not considered as such when a parent class was passed.
    Better error handling on Destroy Handler command. (Caused a code 1 error when event destroyed by owner prior handler command.
    Added the Event Description string to the connector pane.

    ============================
    How it works:
    This framework consists of a FGV Event Handler that manages the interactions between publishers and subscribers to events. It consists of some commands that allow the use of generic LVOOP events.
    It allows the owner to control a Global Stop command, which can be listened by any VI. Once initialized, any process can register its own events and choose which classes are able to subscribe dynamically to it.
    A generic event notifies all subscribers to a change in the list of the events available, so that no VI needs to poll constantly to detect the new events or unsubscribe from events that are unregistered by its owner.
    Commands:
    1- Initialize Handler: The first VI to call the initialization takes ownership of the handler. All other calls before the handler is destroyed will return an error.
    2- Subscribe: Default case. When a VI subscribes to event, it will receive a list of all events for which it is allowed to register. Then the VI can decide what it does with the incoming data on that event channel.
    3- Register: Any VI can register an event refnum (LVOOP type) and decide which object types can subscribe to it. If no input is provided, or if LVObject is in the list, then all are allowed to subscribe. A notification is sent via the Handler Activity event.
    4- Unregister: Any VI that owns an event can remove it from the list. A notification is sent to everyone that listens to the Handler Activity event to prevent the need for poling.
    5- Global Stop: Only the owner of the handler can call a global stop. It is meant to protect the integrity of the program should a subscriber decide to play god.
