  1. I remember having to figure this out when generating tokens for the LabVIEW Cloud Toolkit for Azure. I remember that there was some weird stuff I had to figure out, but I've long since forgotten how I did it. On the bright side, the toolkit is open source, you can browse through the source code here to see how I did it.
  2. Yup, Quick Drop itself (along with several other G-based LabVIEW features) uses Global Data Get/Set. Standard disclaimers apply (private methods are not documented or supported by NI), but these should get you what you need. I agree with Yair that you need to make sure to namespace your data appropriately so it doesn't potentially collide with other Global Data.
  3. I'm glad that helped. But that also tells us that your installed compiled cache for core LabVIEW was either missing or somehow broken. You may want to consider repairing your LabVIEW 2020 install, or doing a mass compile of the whole LabVIEW folder, to make sure your core compiled object cache is up to date.
  4. Try mass compiling the [LabVIEW 2020]\resource folder? LabVIEW should install the compiled cache for this already, but maybe something got messed up?
  5. I've noticed that too. I think it's because, for whatever reason, different UIs resonate with different people more than others. Of the several I've tried, Fork is the one I prefer. I can say that in the couple of months I've used Fork the UI has made my (admittedly simple) workflows straightforward, to the point that I've never encountered the detached HEAD issue, or any other major issues for that matter. And the authors of Fork provide incredibly responsive tech support as well.
  6. Excellent point. I will propose to NI upper management that we take every single bug fix in the latest LabVIEW version and patch that same fix into every previous LabVIEW version we've ever released. I'll let you know how the proposal goes.
  7. No need to assign ill intent. We screwed that up, and we fixed it in LabVIEW 2020.
  8. Aspiring to be the World's 2nd Fastest LabVIEW Programmer is indeed a noble goal. One of the things that makes me fast is the fact that I know exactly what the first three menu options will be, 100% of the time, whenever I right-click on any data type (terminal or wire) on a diagram. 👍
  9. Here's the relevant NI Forums thread on this topic: https://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/New-LabVIEW-2019-Feature-Create-Constant-Create-Control-and/td-p/3933878 Come at me, bro.
  10. LabVIEW 2020 Community Edition includes the LINX Toolkit. Do not install LINX from VIPM or anywhere else. I've suggested they edit the Digilent LINX Toolkit description to mention this.
  11. What versions of LabVIEW and the LINX Toolkit are you using/installing?
  12. There is a different API for Installer Builder. It is also not officially supported by NI, but there are a couple of examples that ship with the API to help you learn how to use it: [LabVIEW 20xx]\vi.lib\InstallerBuilder\examples

    HP48

    Aww man, I loved my HP 48GX. Bought it in high school. Sold it after college because I needed the money. I still have my HP 32SII, which is the best non-graphing calculator I've ever owned. I know @Fab still uses an HP 48, she probably knows how to convert degrees to radians.
