  1. I just added an explanation of how to add to the New dialog on the LabVIEW Wiki: https://labviewwiki.org/wiki/New_dialog If you have any ideas to help me make QControls better, let me know. I have a thread on the QControl Enthusiasts page: https://forums.ni.com/t5/QControl-Enthusiasts/QControl-Usability-Improvements/td-p/4101397?profile.language=en
  2. I probably answered my own question. I don't think it is supported on the Raspberry Pi. It crashes the instance of LabVIEW running on the Pi and then LabVIEW looses connection with it. The only way to get it to reconnect is to reboot the Pi.
  3. Has anyone used the Python Nodes on Raspberry Pi? I can't seem to get them to work. I have been calling python scripts using the command line but would like to call it with the nodes if possible.
  4. So, I am seeing issues with the time functions. See Snippet: The output of Get Date/Time in Seconds shows the correct time according to the timezone set on the Raspberry Pi. But, the Seconds to Date/Time and the Date/Time to Seconds seems to interpret the time input as UTC regardless of how the to UTC flag is set. I want the Cluster of time elements be in my timezone as well. Is the only way to handle this to manually correct for the timezone offset? I can get the timezone offset through a python script so it is possible to do as a workaround. But these functions don't se
  5. GCentral will definitely have search by keywords and tagging but if you were browsing, trying to discover new things, what would you think could help? How can GCentral help you find new things you weren't necessarily searching for. @jacobson's suggestions on GCentral giving you recommendations based on what you have liked and/or what you have downloaded is a possible feature. Or suggestions on packages that aren't dependencies of each other but do complement each other. What about physical UI elements on the website like: a tag cloud, tree of topics where the package might be applied,
  6. My thoughts is that it was just a bunch of marketing... new paint on the same old house. We'll see if they prove me wrong, hopefully in a good way. Not liking the logo though. As everyone has already shown, it's too much like everything else out there. What they had was unique and easily recognizable. Now, however, it's just another "modern" acronym-ized logo.
  7. I guess you could do your trick of maximizing momentarily with the transparency at 99% transparent. Open the VI Hidden, change the transparency, maximize, get VI panel size, change back to standard, set size and transparency.
  8. @Francois Normandin, I'm finishing another project now but I will be returning to this soon. If it doesn't do what I need yet, I'll work with you on it to accomplish more of the features.
  9. That’s probably true but we can’t rely on NI to produce a native implementation of every protocol out there. That’s why we need to make it easier to help each other.
  10. I'm working on a personal project (more information will be shared about this later) that needs Message Queue Telemetry Transport (MQTT). While searching for LabVIEW libraries for MQTT I found 1 on VIPM, 2 in the NI Forums, and 1 through Goggle on GitHub, as follows: WireQueue-MQTT Driver for LabVIEW by WireFlow AB (this one costs $550) MQTT Client API in native LabVIEW by Peter - daq.io (also on GitHub as LVMQTT) MQTT-LabVIEW by Michal Radziwon Quaxo MQTT LabVIEW by Stefan May This is not unusual for just about anything you might be looking for. In fact searc
  11. I have some examples from my CLA Summit presentation on designing for touchscreens. Links to the video and the demo code are on the wiki at: https://labviewwiki.org/wiki/Americas_CLA_Summit_2019#qsi_ui-ux_touchscreen
  12. This discussion on package manager capabilities definitely needs to happen but just to summarize Chris' post: Therefore, will use what we have and improve as we go.
  13. On the topic, I want to be able to publish my code, have others contribute to my code, and contribute to others code as easily as possible. This is regardless of packaging technology. Also, I want to learn what is out there already, quickly and easily. So I don’t reinvent the wheel in ignorance.
  14. @joerghampel, GPM does allow local repos and GPM is open source. Link to MGI’s GPM Wiki: https://gitlab.com/mgi/gpm/gpm/wikis/How-Tos/Filesystem-Based-Registries Link to the GPM project: https://gitlab.com/mgi/gpm Even I have contributed to GPM along with some of the Composed Systems guys. @JamesMc86 I’m working on a palette editor now which can be used stand-alone but I’ll work with MGI to add it to GPM.
  15. All of the presentations are now on the LabVIEW Wiki. You can find them at: https://labviewwiki.org/wiki/Americas_CLA_Summit_2019 Thanks Kevin Shirey and Mark Balla for producing the videos and all those that volunteered to run the cameras. This is an awesome resource to be able to go re-watch and review these great presentations again or for those that couldn't join us in person to be able to view them as well.
  16. As a developer that works in development environment that is not internet connected I would like to be able to download packages and put them in a local repository.
  17. As a developer that works in development environment that is not internet connected I need to be able to host and search an internal system.
  18. As an IDE add on tools developer I want to publish, distribute, and install the tools as packages.
  19. First, thank you for your input. Together we can help make tools to better our community. To start we need to understand the variety and diversity of our community and the various problems we need to solve. Please add comments to this thread in the Personas/User Stories format. "As someone looking for code I want to..." "As someone contributing code I want to..." "As a user collaborating on an idea for un-created code, I want to..." "As a potential developer of code that hasn't been created yet, I want to..." "As a co-developer of code I want to..." "As
  20. I’ll be there. I’m excited to see everyone.
  21. Norm, @Michael Aivaliotis, is the main system admin, he’ll have an answer for you. If you have external links in your page it requires you to do a Captcha to prove you’re not a bot. Make sure that is not what’s blocking you. —Q
  22. Join us at NIWeek 2019! Contributors of labviewwiki.org, (including future contributors), can add to their ribbon collection by finding an admin during NIWeek or at the LAVA BBQ! See you there!
  23. @X___, Sorry, other than what @ShaunR is suggesting, there really isn't a way to group like that at edit time. What I was suggesting was how to control multiple controls in a QControl, which would be run-time behavior.
  24. Well I guess you could pass the reference to each button and the slider individually into the constructor VI without them being in the cluster. You would have to add the references to the QControl class through a manual bundle in the constructor and edit the Event Handler accordingly. If that is the case I would recommend starting a new QControl and inheriting from Slider and then passing in the slider reference as normal. Then pass the references for the buttons as extra inputs with manual bundle. That way each button and slider can be positioned separately.
  25. The last straw that made me abandon XControls forever and create the QControl Toolkit was the trouble I was having using XControls with Actor Framework and PPLs. At first I just encountered weird behavior problems, then sporadic crashes, and finally the inability to build the application. With more work and headache I probably could have found workarounds and continued using XControls but it just wasn't worth it.
