    Job Satisfaction

    Thanks for the recommended read Martin, I will check that one out next as soon as i wrap up this one.

    Job Satisfaction

    I recognize that this could be a tough subject for some people to feel open to share publicly. I certainly would discourage individuals from sharing more than they are comfortable with. I feel that sharing this information could be beneficial not only to myself, but to others who maybe hadn't given this much thought. I think employee satisfaction is often assumed to be tied to pay, but I feel as though I agree with hooovahh, that is begins to have diminishing returns at some point. This is what motivated me to publicly ask about perks that individuals find satisfying/motivating. I figure if I don't ask, how can i expect to learn.

    Job Satisfaction

    I’m currently reading thru a book entitled “Peopleware: Productive Projects and Teamsâ€, which up to where I’m at is basically addressing the concept of managing people as people and not as resources. I am finding the book to be very interesting and thought provoking. A large emphasis of what I’ve read up to this point has been focused on employee job satisfaction and overall project/team effectiveness as it relates to it. After reading this I began to think about job satisfaction and what it meant to me personally and how job satisfaction is something that takes on a different meaning to everybody. So I thought that one of the best ways to get feedback on job satisfaction would be to simply ask. As an employee, what are some of the things that make you more satisfied with your job? Is it pay, project diversity, atmosphere, growth opportunities or something else entirely? This could be something where you work now, where you’ve worked in the past or just something that you recognize as being meaningful to you. How about for those of you that are also an employer? What are some of the activities, policies, practices or beliefs that you use to help increase job satisfaction? What about some of the things that as an employee/employer that has directly related to a decrease in job satisfaction? I’d really appreciate any feedback / input that you can all provide. I want to learn how others in our industry specifically feel about these topics so that I can help to create a better work environment for myself, my co-workers, and my employee’s. Thanks, Dave Graybeal

    OpenG Licenses

    If I distribute both a compiled application as well as the source code it is derived from does this still force me to include the licensing information?
  5. I believe that LabVIEW Real-Time still requires a Deployment License for Real-Time Targets. I think the NI RT Controllers include this during purchase if you choose the RT OS Options.

    Copyright © 2007, GTech Automation All rights reserved. Author: Dave A. Graybeal --see readme text for contact information Instructions: This code has been tested to run under LabVIEW 8.2.1. Unzip the code into any folder of your choice and open the example called, GetRefExample.vi. This shows how to use the 'Get Reference To All Controls.vi' as well as the 'Get Control Reference by Name.vi' to obtain a reference to all controls and how to search thru those reference to obtain the reference you want. Features: Get Reference to All Controls.vi -Gets the references and labels to All the controls on the front panel of the calling VI. -Is Able to search thru all Tab Controls recursively to compile a complete list of Controls from the front panel. Get Control Reference by Name.vi -Polymorphic VI that allows for searching list for single reference or an array of references. -Gets a Specific Reference from the List of All Controls by Control Name(Label). Get Control References By Match Pattern.vi -Gets an Array of References for all Controls containing the regular expression in the label. Change Log: 1.0.0: Initial release of the code. 1.1.0: Changed the Class ID of a Tab Control from a constant to a Property Node (To support Future LabVIEW Releases) 1.2.0: Added Get Control References By Match Pattern.vi (Authored By: Justin Goeres) Thanks! Modified GetRefExample to Include the Get Control References By Match Pattern.vi Improved some performace by removing unnecessary Items from Loops (Thanks JFM!) Removed all Dialog boxes from VI's and replaced them with proper error output messages. Added shift registers where necessary to ensure proper error is passed out of each VI. Recompiled under LabVIEW 8.2.1.

    I passed the CLAD

    wow.... that is a shocking word there... it's actually kind of scary that it was actually something that someone thought needed to be defined... Time for a coffee break now i think...
  11. I recommend taking a look at the "Fit VI Window To Largest Decoration.vi" Found in the OpenG Tools under the Application Control Tools. This VI works great for keeping the run size and position the same. You simply put a Frame Decoration (or any decoration that you like) around the area that you would like to be viewed when running. When the VI is called (typically I use it as my first VI in my startup) it will reposition the VI Window to show only the contents of the decoration regardless of where the front panel was last saved.

    Block Diagram:Open

    QUOTE (Aristos Queue @ Jan 17 2009, 03:46 AM) What is it that does not officially exist? i know the option to view the block diagram of a subpanel has been around since 8.0 without even having to enabling any fancy scripting or anything. I guess I'm not sure what about the open block diagram option wouldn't be documented because of this yet? Thanks, Dave

    Block Diagram:Open

    Yes, as of 8.6 I have also noticed it acting odd... it would seem that some spots on the frame of the subpanel will actually open the block diagram still, however finding those spots can be a pain. Most of the time when you bring up the menu and select Open Block Diagram it just acts unresponsive. I haven't gone thru the buglist yet, so it may be documented already. Dave

    Current Time

    MikaelH, I see that in the formula node that you used you didn't initialize the variables that you were outputting from the formula node. I thought I recall that you had to declare all variables (excluding the inputs to the node) so that labview would know what type of variable to create. Do you know if this lack of declaring the variable type is something that's new to LabVIEW? It's not really important I suppose, but curiosity got the better of me. Thanks, Dave
