  1. I used to use EyeStudio some years back. It worked quite well for finding buttons, clicking, entering text, evaluating visual results. https://eyeautomate.com/eyestudio/. At the time, it was free, but now its not, and quite expensive. So I have no idea if it is worth it now or how the product has evolved. Perhaps its great now or perhaps its an old unmaintained product they are trying to sell. But I wish I had this type of product now.
  2. How could I miss that... I'm sorry for that.
  3. If you will be using a singleton, please have a look at this: https://forums.ni.com/t5/Bay-Area-LabVIEW-User-Group/LabVIEW-Design-Patterns-Mini-Series-Singleton-by-Dmitry/td-p/3527270 The NI implementation is not very good. In the zip-file in the link above, you will find some others and a ppt for a presentation that goes through some others and points out the best one.
  4. Thanks Darren, I didn't know that. Maybe because that is also not in the help.
  5. Very interesting. Error rings are so large I am tempted to put them in a sub-VI just for that reason. And if they also always should have a case structure around them... I agree that it should be documented, and I had a look in the help to see what it said and found that LV2020 displays: However, LV2019 works. Is it only me? (its only on the error ring, everything else in the help seems to work)
  6. Are you sure you really want to share the class instance? Often, really what you want to do is send messages between the loops with info of change.
  7. I know there was a discussion on the NI forum about execution highlighting with a similar issue. A VI "later" on the error wire was shown to be executed before a VI "earlier" on the wire. In reality, that probably didn't happen, but I guess the reason can be the same (probably something like what drjdpowell is saying). But, I know that it was answered in detail from someone from NI. Unfortunately I cannot for my life find the thread. I think it was some tcp/ip VIs or perhaps a save to text file involved.
  8. I want to give feedback, but its just so much. I did give feedback on 2.0 on a long list of issues on the beta forum but it was frustrating then to not know if there was any reason at all to give feedback. I don't recall even receiving anything that the feedback was received or anyone saying that they read the forum posts. I used 4.0 on a new small/tiny project but gave up since some simple things were not there yet (or who knows, maybe wont be) and I quickly had a new long list of issues but did not have time to document them, and I didn't know if there was any meaning at all in doing that.
  9. This has been filed as CAR 455443 see this thread: http://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/Chart-Redraw-Issue-with-Multiple-Plots/m-p/2755616/highlight/true#M812948
  10. Hi, I hope this is the right place to post this. Please take a look at the attached VI to see an issue I'm having. If you have any ideas, please share. I managed to find a partial workaround to this issue, but the behaviour looks odd and bug-like, and sweep mode still looks very bad. Background: I wanted to use charts to create the most efficient way of displaying data, since I need to display several plots with high update frequencies but of varying sampling frequencies. Before plotting the data, it is already decimated so I will only plot as many points as I have pixels available.
  11. I tried creating a control, but no matter what I do, state 2 and 4 is not scaled. Those pictures are only offset. It seems like they are correctly offset to handle a scaling, but the scaling is not done. I tried reinstalling the Controls addon and Bitman, but the problem persists. I tried on LV 2010, -11, -13. Any ideas?
  12. Sorry for my very late reply. Forgot to check the topic and had not set up to receive emails for replies. Your zip file works. I don't remember now if there was any control templates installed in the package. Should there have been? I downloaded some templates but I don't remember them containing any "pdn" files. Perhaps that was the problem. Sorry that I don't remember anymore and cannot be of more help right now. I will surely check out your tool a bit more now.
  13. Looks like a great tool. I got it working with 2010, but 2012 and 2013 generates corrupt ctl-files. Any plans on updating support for newer LabVIEW versions?
