  1. File Name: Data Repository with INI files (not a Source-Code-Control) File Submitter: sam File Submitted: 30 Oct 2006 File Updated: 31 Oct 2006 File Category: Database and File IO Data.vi V1.0.0 LabVIEW Versions 7.0,7.1 Copyright
  2. I agree that it can get complicated, but what I have is a ‘dt’ input, which is the time taken for the last (loop iteration or task sub-loop). This ‘dt’ value then is used to estimate the remaining time by multiplying it by the amount of steps remaining. The value does jump up/down a few seconds but in general it gives good estimate. Even in windows I haven't seen a very accurate implementation, unless you are well aware of the nature of the task. Also I only do it for the current tasks and I don't try for the remaining tasks in the queue. The above method doesn't have to be tested separately on a developer and use it statistical data.
  3. Nice tool, I have made a message dialog very similar, in code structure. But mine doesn't have the many gif graphics. What I have in mine is that it also gives an estimate of remaining amount of time left to complete the current task. Maybe a 1.1.0 release? Thanks for sharing it.
  4. A nice free utility for disk usage, which actually color-codes your files, is WinDirStat http://windirstat.info/. it uses the approach of treemap, The same as SpaceMonger mentioned already above. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treemap -Sam

  6. One way to get To get system variable value from windows, is to use Windows Shell programming. Here is an example. -Sam Download File:post-12-1141677380.vi
  7. Treat the other exe like a llb and open a reference to the vi inside it.
  8. I have added the Synonyms, Related Words, and Contrast to the spell check. Any one interested I can upload it, or drop me a line. -Sam
  9. And here is a spell checker. I for one need a spell checker. It's quick and dirty, and I haven
  10. One thing Michaels' code allows to do is to be able to add the capability to define file patterns. If you pass anything but *.* or leave unwired you will not get back any Folder names. I myself use file patterns. I have changed mine and removed the FOR loop for the file names and brought the whole thing inside the WHILE loop and the same steps for folder is done on files. I would post it again but your approach is much easier on the eyes. -Sam
  11. I wish for support for Unicode strings. Here is a few line form http://www.unicode.org/ Unicode provides a unique number for every character, no matter what the platform, no matter what the program, no matter what the language -Sam
  12. hi Michael, I really like your approach; for most of my algorithms (solutions) that I like, they are best implemented in a text language, that way recursive algorithms really shows their power. I am certain we take something
  13. Hi Jim, Sure, I have benefited from OpenG and I am more than happy to give back. -Sam
  14. This VI give the directory listing of files and directories, it is also able to do a recursive listing. I was using the OpenG VI but that could not handle very large directories efficiently. Any comments are welcome. -Sam Download File:post-10-1077208058.vi
  15. This file dialog uses a windows com object to show your native file dialog. You can use it to show printer, color and other dialogs too, but the functionality has only been implemented for File selection. It is very useful and can do most of the things you want, including remembering the last files used per extinction type. There are default values there so just run it and you can see how it behaves. Also if you run it and nothing happens then you may not have the ActiveX control registered on your PC. Usually by default the ActiveX is installed on all new PCs. To register put the activeX in your System32 and run regsvr32 "C:windowsDirsystem32comdlg32.ocx" Enjoy, -Sam PS: if OpenG/LABUsefull wants it, take it, or let me know what mods it needs and I will do them.
