  1. I haven't seen very long replies, but it looks like some of the replies are longer than was previously truncated, so I believe the switch flipping helped. I'll update if I see more truncation. Thanks.
  2. Well, that creates a mixed reaction. On the one hand, obviously, congratulations, good luck, enjoy, etc. On the other, we're losing our resident Greg McKascle and we'll have to see if someone else with the same level of knowledge steps up to offer such access to internal information. I can think of some and hopefully one or more of them will provide. Good flying...
  3. Since the latest update, it looks like email notifications don't show the whole message (see example below). It doesn't look like there is any user setting to control this. Any chance of changing this on the backend?
  4. The button with the two arrows in a circle on the toolbar (next to the cleanup button) opens the reorder menu, which includes the options for grouping and ungrouping controls. Note that this is purely visual and there are no properties for the group.
  5. I recently backsaved a few things from 2020 to 2015, including with classes, so at least there it works. I would suggest trying to save something simpler and if that works, then take only parts of the project (which obviously will load with missing dependencies) and just backsave those, to see where the issue is. With your image stuck at a vi.lib VI, I would also suggest making sure to mass compile the folder again (or at least the error ring folder) and possibly trying to remove the error rings from your code, if you don't have too many. If something would have problems with backsaving,
  6. The Application class has a couple of private methods which can do this (called Global Data.Set and Get) which operate on a name and a variant value (I believe this goes back at least to 2009). I think this should persist across QD calls. Note that you should pick a name which will be different from other things which might exist in the system.
  7. No errors are added to the log when this happens. The errors that are there (the file is attached) are probably partly because of my attempts to manually install and partly because of another annoying bug - I don't recall the exact details, but basically my LV had a non-standard VI server port, and VIPM had trouble connecting to LV. I figured out that was probably the issue (as it happened before), so I changed it in LV to be the standard 3363 and then VIPM could connect, but when installing or mass compiling (can't remember what point exactly) it then failed to connect. I looked at the VIPM s
  8. Currently, with LV 2020 and VIPM 2020.1, I have the following problem: I open VIPM browser and search for any package (like an OpenG or MGI package) I find the package I open its page and select download I get a Windows popup message that it was downloaded almost immediately, but nothing happens if I click the message. The other three buttons on the page remain disabled, so I can't open the package in VIPM to install it. If I take a VIP file from elsewhere and double click it, then VIPM opens it and I can install it. Also, the downloads
  9. NI is trying to release it earlier. See here - https://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW-Idea-Exchange/LabVIEW-LE/idc-p/4030035#M41946
  10. OK - https://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW-Idea-Exchange/Make-the-All-Supported-Properties-property-return-nested/idi-p/4001207https://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW-Idea-Exchange/Make-the-All-Supported-Properties-property-return-nested/idi-p/4001207
  11. Darren, any chance of getting the All Supported Properties property of the Property class (i.e. the property node) to actually return all the supported properties for the current class of the property node, including all of the nested ones? As it is today, that property only returns the top level properties (so it would show a Label property if the node is linked to a class inheriting from Control, but not all the subproperties coming from the Label class). If that's too hard for support reasons, maybe at least adding a new property which will actually return all of them?
  12. I don't use the variant probes, but a quick look at the code (browseVariant.vi) shows that it uses deprecated VIs in the refnum case. It looks like even the new NI VIs (at least in 2015) don't do the whole job (they seem to return the class name of the wire you had before you convert to a variant, rather than the actual class on the wire), so I think you will need a combination of NI's Get Type Information.vi to know that it's a class and OpenG's LVOOP Return Class Name__ogtk.vi to get the class name:
  13. Short version - you're running a 32 bit process on a 64 bit OS which causes a mess as to how to correctly run LPR. Here are a couple of relevant links: https://knowledgebase.progress.com/articles/Article/Running-OS-COMMAND-LPR-EXE-from-within-32-bit-OpenEdge-the-Procedure-Editor-fails-on-64-bit-Windows https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/winprog64/file-system-redirector The first one suggests a solution, although I haven't tried it myself.
  14. Looks like there's a problem in creating new accounts. See this thread - https://forums.ni.com/t5/BreakPoint/Creating-LAVA-Account/m-p/3909178#M31279 I also tried on Windows 10/FF 66 and didn't even get the CAPTCHA, just no response after filling in the details and clicking Create my Account.
  15. Thanks, that looks like it should work. Where did you find the ID part of the URL? That only works if you use one of the apps Anchor supports. I wanted this for people who use other apps, like me.
  16. Can you publish the RSS feed for the podcast so that people using other apps can also subscribe? My understanding is that the process for finding it is described here, under the "Redirect from your old host" section - https://help.anchor.fm/hc/en-us/articles/115001185692-Step-2-Redirecting-your-RSS-feed-to-Anchor
  17. I forgot to mention those. I actually started with those events, but my understanding was that the desire is to discard actions on the items, not opening and closing, and for those the open/close events don't really help (unless you plan on registering for both the open/close? event and for the mouse down? event and hope that LV will always process events in the order of the frames and then you can try relying on the lack of the first event to discard the second). Like I said, I assume making it an indicator would do the job.
  18. I don't know if there's a way to figure out if the click was specifically on the expand symbol (other than starting to calculate yourself, which could get messy with nested elements), but can you just make the tree an indicator instead of a control? This will allow you to expand, but not to select. If the selection option is needed, Shaun's code from above should work. I'm not sure about dragging and other features.
  19. The difference is in the second Q&R function, where version 2 converts the remainder to U16 instead of the quotient.
  20. The funny thing is that I actually ran into this myself more than once, but I keep forgetting that it's not like flattening the array using the LV flattening functions and that you need to inline the bytes yourself using a cluster. I seem to recall making that mistake more than once and then having to fix it after testing.
  21. Whether you have separate elements or a cluster or a 1D array of clusters with a single element should probably not matter, as they are all the same in memory. I'm pretty sure the part you're missing is the char Data[1024] line - this means an array of 1024 bytes is expected (possibly so that it can be written into) and you're not allocating that memory. Try initializing the array to a size of 1024 bytes.
  22. Yeah, doesn't look like a good option here, as there's no VS installed there and it looks like it's against the license to take that utility on its own. Looking at some links from searching for that showed this, which seems to indicate you should be able to call System.EnterpriseServices.Internal.Publish.GacInstall to add an assembly to the cache, but a quick test both with through PowerShell and through LV, both run as admin, failed to install it to the GAC (the method doesn't actually return an error. Instead, the error is logged to the system event log and has no actual useful details).
  23. I have the same question. I have some third party DLLs installed into the program files folder. As far as I can tell they are unsigned and not in the GAC (the public key token is null). I can call the DLLs, but when I build an EXE, it shows the browse dialog if the DLL is not in the application folder. Selecting the DLL then does load the program correctly. I would rather not copy the EXE to the DLLs folder or copy all of them (to get all the dependencies) to the application's folder. Creating a config file with a codebase element didn't seem to help either, probably because the asse
  24. AllObjs[] uses the Z order, not the tabbing order. My understanding is that this is because it can include objects which can't be tabbed to, like decorations, so they're not part of the tabbing order. The same applies to SelectionList[] properties (although those also group items you selected together in a higher hierarchy).
  25. I haven't tried now and my exprience with trees is limited, but a quick look shows two possible options: The Top Left Visible Cell property, combined with the Number of Rows property, which will definitely work, but will require some computation to determine what it should be. The Open/Close.Ensure Visible method, which should probably work.
