  1. Can anyone open this LabVIEW 5.1 code and save it in a later version of LabVIEW that can be opened/upgraded by v8.5?
  2. To followup... NI moved the functionality around a little (although I didn't read about it anywhere), so technically it's not a bug and can be mitigated by opening the VI reference with the option to save the VI on close if there are any unsaved changes (Options = 0x04).
  3. Did this problem get fixed? The VI isn't broken when I open in 8.0.1.
  4. I'm pretty sure this wasn't a problem in previous versions. If a subVI is not reserved by another higher level VI, closing the FP from the BD will cause you to lose all changes to that VI. http://forums.ni.com/ni/board/message?boar...ssage.id=182816
  5. Without the auto-tool on, you can't get the little grabby hand to move the block diagram around when the VI is running because (per NI support) they purposely killed the popup menu. Nice. If it's not broke, don't fix it. This has been reported, and the hand is automatically available with the auto-tool on. The real request here though is simply for horizontal navigation with the roller ball. Currently you can get vertical navigation and fast vertical navigation (hold down Shift), but no horizontal navigation by holding down Control, or Control+Shift, as is used in other programs (Microsoft Visio for example). This feature would make navigation really really easy.

    i finally made it down the property node tree to be able to set the front panel origin. what a pane(!) :thumbdown: i used to just drop fp.origin and set it to zero so my fp would reset every time but now i'll have to have a vi handy or a vi with a set of code to merge off the palette. i agree with previous suggestions: they should have left it with an updated description and consigned it simply to pane[0] origin. actually, i expected this to be a settable property in the vi's property list since the window size is now a settable item. that is really convenient. but then if i scrolled around the FP, it would resize with my new origin and i couldn't see anything. doh! i'm sure they left this out because there is now an entire pane[] array to deal with, but it would still be really handy for single pane vi's.

    Can someone point me to the FP.Origin replacement in LV8?
  8. Yes, a null string meaning the zero-length string constant (shown as a little square quote) located on the palette. I have all types of cluster, usually just different data, and usually not including a string where length information is stored with the data
  9. ...and doing your own mean is actually faster than calling the LabVIEW dll... I can't remember who posted that awhile ago... put them in a high-count loop for comparison.
  10. The more basic information of just your different IP #'s and Computer ID's can also be obtained by placing the String to IP function and then right-clicking to selecting multiple outputs. This yields a U32 array that can be converted in a for loop using the IP to String function to return names and dot-notation IP #'s. Also if you're looking for the connection status of a specific device on your network there is code availalbe (I believe it's on NI's website somewhere) that will let you monitor the ping time natively (using raw winsock calls, as compared to performing a shell exec of the ping command)
  11. That may be 1 bit flip from zero... I'm not sure. there are issues sometimes with numbers that approach zero when using double/single data types. Besides that however, I wire a complex into the squareroot and get the correct answer out (0 + 3i)... what were you using exactly to get your result? The expression node didn't seem to work with a complex number and neither did the formula node so I couldn't figure out what you were doing.
  12. I can't follow the video link but I'm guessing I've seen it before judging by what's been said. The article below has more information on the guy that did it (and a photo) http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,177861,00.html
  13. Another possible workaround to this is to add a blank bookmark vi (inside of a disable structure if you want) and then add that to your palette. Then you can place as many as you want and search for them as desired.
  14. That's interesting. Is it still twice as fast if you put it in a subvi?
