  1. Thanks for the ideas. The NICs are on different subnets, but I was not aware of that usage of StringToIP. Oddly the function shows both NICs even though the TCP Open does not correctly connect. I don't know whether it has anything to do with the XP Embedded, but I am going to just use a launcher executable. I have already spent way too long on this and I just can't make sense of why it is acting strange.
  2. I am having some problems with a LabVIEW application of mine. It is set to auto-run on startup, and the OS is Windows XP Embedded. I am trying to add a NIC to the system to allow for Ethernet communication. That makes two network interfaces, since there is one built-in network interface that is being used for control of some internal RF ComBlocks. The problem I am seeing is when I attempt to open the connection to the ComBlocks I get an error because the correct connection is not made. Disabling the second NIC solves the problem, but even trying to hard-route a connection using ROUTE ADD

    It's comforting, after being away for quite a while, to be scanning the recent threads and see this one. Thanks, alfa.

    QUOTE (Jim Kring @ May 27 2009, 10:30 AM) It was really cool to see something I started show up in your video! I am really glad that you were able to finalize it and figure out the scripting magic that I never did figure out. I would love to see what was done; I look forward to that!!Great job with the Framework! It is a great extension to the LabVIEW IDE and to the concept started with VIPM. Keep the awesomeness coming.

    QUOTE (alfa @ Sep 4 2008, 12:05 AM) It certainly matters where you are (and I am SO interested in finding out what percentile you fall into...). If you came up with the idea the only 1 in 1300 people are fully awake, did you manage to do that while not being fully awake? Aren't you inherently including with this theory that you are one of the blessed few? If you are then congratulations are in order. But as Rolf already pointed out, your ideas don't exactly encourage people to congratulate you. Though if about 1300 people read this thread, then you may help the enlightenment of a bles
  10. QUOTE (Aristos Queue @ Aug 30 2008, 01:27 PM) I don't use libraries so I'm a bit confused by this. If I understand correctly, and if the feature of overlaying the access scope on the icon were developed, C.vi is would show up as public if dropped on a vi within B.lvlib. C.vi would show up as private if dropped on a vi withing A.lvlib. And C.vi would break a vi (possibly different overlay) if placed elsewhere. Is this correct? And that is the issue, that the access scope actually changes based on where it is called? David
  11. QUOTE (crelf @ Aug 29 2008, 09:30 AM) The Icon Editor I created allows for placing images in the corners. It wouldn't be that hard to automatically place the proper image in the desired corner. However, this would probably require knowing the VI ref so you could query. (I haven't looked into this, so I am not sure that it is available for querying...) This is just another reason why it would be nice to know what VI the Icon Editor is manipulating. My current method for getting the VI ref works pretty well, but doesn't handle calling the Icon Editor from an Invoke Node. I use a backgr
  12. QUOTE (mballa @ Aug 27 2008, 06:29 AM) I agree that the scripting event is the best that is known out here in the wild. But it doesn't handle situations where it is called through an Invoke Node or from the palette editing area. ThSa even had a comment in his code that handling the Invoke Node was something he hadn't cracked. QUOTE (mballa @ Aug 27 2008, 06:29 AM) I would agree with PJM on this one, If you want to do several different things to a VI : Fix the FP, Set Description, Hide/Show toolbars, and Icon editing then you start with a Main that is designed to do this. Taking an
  13. I was hoping to get some discussion on the points I brought up ... But if nothing else, What I really want is to know if there is some way to know definitively WHO the icon editor is 'editing'. This would be necessary for allowing things like editing the description. Can someone from NI point us in the right direction here? Is it at least something under consideration for future versions of LabVIEW?
  14. Regarding 3-Button Dialog: I must say that the issue of performance is somewhat out of place when it is specifically stated that the 3-Button Dialog is a UI. Performance is really important for the work code that crunches in the background. But I have always heard that when it comes to user interfaces, maintainability and speed of programming is always more important than speed of execution. Is the user really going to notice the extra 20 milliseconds? David
  15. QUOTE (LV_FPGA_SE @ Aug 20 2008, 06:25 PM) Good answers!! I would hire you if I could. This being that you also pass the test of having many good posts here on LAVA.
  16. QUOTE (crelf @ Aug 14 2008, 05:41 PM) How silly of me. I think you have that backwards. When you install a custom icon editor (place a lv_icon.vi file in the plugins directory) it always shows up when editing an icon. You can cancel out of it in such a way that you revert temporarily to the standard LV icon editor, but you can't go back the other way.
  17. I drew up a quick Front Panel to allow some discussion here. It includes the standard look, plus a tab control on the right for various options. I included a toolbar area on the top for quick access to changing the header and body and frame colors/images. The first box would house any selected image, and the black-on-white boxes would be the FG/BG colors. The dropdown on the top right would be for selection of saved themes/configurations.
  18. QUOTE (PJM_labview @ Aug 12 2008, 03:12 PM) Does this happen when all the colors in the 256 color icon correspond to white? This could be circumvented by forcing the B&W icon to have a black border if it would otherwise be pure white. In the end, the 256 color icon is the main icon that people will see, and it should roughly define what the other color icons look like. Independently editing the other color options (from what I've heard and seen) is only done because NI forces us to in order to have smaller sized icons. If we could properly convert the 256 icon to the other two fo
  19. QUOTE (PJM_labview @ Aug 12 2008, 12:07 PM) I will post an image with descriptions on those buttons. What would be the use cases for editing each one independently? If you had a document on those NI functions, that would be great ! It would probably be worthwhile to amass a list of desired functionalities (like copying from the clipboard). The solution currently for my implementation is to save that image to the correct image folder and then it would show up in the image search. Though I had considered adding a functionality for importing an image into my 'library'. It wouldn't be ha
  20. QUOTE (Antoine Châlons @ Aug 11 2008, 11:22 PM) I agree -- if I know the lyrics it tends to distract me. I like classical or else a totally eclectic mix of songs from my music library ranging all over but successfully skirting around a few genres like Country, Rap, and R&B. Most anything else is fair game... I even noticed that "C is for Cookie" somehow slipped into that mix. http://lavag.org/old_files/monthly_08_2008/post-1519-1218563271.jpg' target="_blank">
  21. Michael, I just wanted to thank you for working on improving the MC Listbox. I loved what I saw at NI Week at your presentation. I have tried to do something similar with making an XControl for the multiple type MC Listbox that I made. I even started playing with making the column resizing work the way you were showing. I didn't get very far, so I was very impressed with what you showed. I was wondering if you purposefully didn't talk about the glyphs in the far left column ... :ninja: Have you considered supporting booleans, rings, etc. in the listbox? The glyphs would be wonderful f
  22. QUOTE (mballa @ Aug 12 2008, 06:46 AM) I posted an Icon Editor that plays with both text and graphics. It is quite well developed, but tuned to my liking... I really like the idea of coming up with the LAVA Icon Editor. That would be very cool. I would love to help out with that!! Regarding PJM's comment, I had not really considered (ever) mimicking the NI Icon Editor functionality because I wanted to avoid completely all that pixel manipulation when I create my icons. However, I can understand his point that to be widely accepted it has to at least feel comfortable at first glance
  23. QUOTE (sachsm @ Aug 7 2008, 04:56 PM) When I have needed this, I just convert to string before passing to subVI. You can make a smaller-sized subVI wrapper around the Scan From String if you need to conserve block diagram real estate. I made a request for exactly this a while back, but I have come to agree with Aristos. I just would prefer a smaller sized icon, similar to those for converting between numeric types.
  24. I looked at the upgrade notes, and not having done any beta testing I was quite happy to see a few upgrades that will be nice for me. Updating properties of multiple items at once (though this wasn't too much of a surprise, given various hints) Quick Drop for keyboard shortcuts to palette items (look familiar, Yair?) and the Tunnel Wiring Wizard ! built into LabVIEW
  25. QUOTE (iowa @ Jul 31 2008, 03:22 PM) Is there some reason you have to do all the Windows API work yourself? I thought the suggestion of using compiled AutoIt scripts was quite nice. AutoIt does all the API work and you just run the exe from your VI. Is there a reason this doesn't work for you?
