  1. 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.
  2. No need to assign ill intent. We screwed that up, and we fixed it in LabVIEW 2020.
  3. 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. 👍
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. What versions of LabVIEW and the LINX Toolkit are you using/installing?
  7. 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.
  9. I feel like I've exported data from DETT before, but it's been a long time since I've used it, I don't remember any details. Hopefully somebody else reading this has more info.
  10. That manual is for the Real-Time Execution Trace Toolkit, which I believe has been deprecated. To my knowledge, the Desktop Execution Trace Toolkit has never included this functionality.
  11. I was already used to it because I used this right-click plugin from LabVIEW 2015 until the feature was added natively in LabVIEW 2019. Also, for cleaning up wires, I find selecting one or more wires and pressing Ctrl-U to be faster than right-clicking each single wire and selecting Clean Up Wire.
  12. I think @Aristos Queue added that in LabVIEW 2019.
  13. No idea, I just saw "All of the icons are free for both personal and commercial use" on the main page, with no mention of including license info.
  14. I found this tonight while working on a project: https://remixicon.com/ Really good icon library with modern-looking icons where you can customize the color and size of the icons, then download them as PNG files. I then import them into a LabVIEW pict ring and it's off to the races.
  15. Oops, looks like I missed when this feature went in. As AristosQueue mentioned in a reply to your Idea Exchange post, you can use the Dependencies > Missing Dependency Names and Dependencies > Missing Dependency Paths properties of the GObject class in LabVIEW 2015 and later. Can you verify that these properties give you want you need, and I'll close out the Idea Exchange post as Already Implemented?
  16. Unfortunately there is currently (as of LabVIEW 2019) no comparable functionality to the Missing VI Name/Missing VI Path from subVIs for typedefs, nor is this functionality going to be in LabVIEW 2020. I suggest posting this request on the LabVIEW Idea Exchange. It would be a useful feature for tooling like what you've described.
  17. He's talking about edit-time panel and diagram menus and run-time diagram menus that are implemented as right-click plugins. This bug fix does not affect right-clicks in the project window.
  18. I don't know of a way to do this. The closest thing would be to show the Tools palette with the 'Tools Palette Open' property, then use OS calls (like user32.dll on Windows) to simulate a mouse click to turn the auto tool on/off.
  19. This is a good idea. I suggest posting it to the Idea Exchange.
  20. Right, VI Analyzer Toolkit 2016 was the first version to officially support 64-bit LabVIEW. For unofficial support in previous versions, we have this resource: https://forums.ni.com/t5/VI-Analyzer-Enthusiasts/Using-the-VI-Analyzer-Toolkit-with-64-bit-LabVIEW/ta-p/3494395
  21. Yes, it's a LabVIEW Toolkit, which means you have to install it separately for each LabVIEW you have. Here's the download page where you can get whichever version (and bitness) toolkit installer(s) you need: https://www.ni.com/en-us/support/downloads/software-products/download.labview-vi-analyzer-toolkit.html
  22. The VI Analyzer has core components installed with LabVIEW, like the UI you're seeing. The VI Analyzer Toolkit is a separate install with 90+ tests, including the Complexity Metrics tests. So you need to install the VI Analyzer Toolkit to see the tests.
