    It is a different product. It's like if a car company messed up some component and said: sorry, we fixed it the new model. But, hey no ill intent here, just a business model.

    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.

    It's like moving the Expression Node back in some subpalette of the Mathematics functions that is not existing in the Base LabVIEW version (https://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/Expression-Node/td-p/3974820).

    Completely uncalled for, but, hey, AQ doesn't think that text-based mathematics should even be allowed in LV, so what do we know?

    No need to assign ill intent. We screwed that up, and we fixed it in LabVIEW 2020.

    I'm trying to beat Darren for fastest programmer in the world, so muscle memory plays alot into things like right click menus and quickdrop names

    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. 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. ;)

    Especially interesting is your change to the menu ordering for clean up wire, I have been trying to remember this one for nearly a year now! (I know I can turn it off but eventually I will be using only greater than 2019 so I may as well get used to it)

    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.

  6. 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?

  7. 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.

    Are you talking about right click during edit time or during runtime?

    Does this explain the random right click of doom that freezes LabVIEW after right clicking on an item in project explorer?

    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.

    Darren, any chance of getting the All Supported Properties property of the Property class (i.e. the property node) to actually return all the supported properties for the current class of the property node, including all of the nested ones?

    As it is today, that property only returns the top level properties (so it would show a Label property if the node is linked to a class inheriting from Control, but not all the subproperties coming from the Label class).

    If that's too hard for support reasons, maybe at least adding a new property which will actually return all of them?

    This is a good idea. I suggest posting it to the Idea Exchange.

    I've got it in 2019 but not in all the other versions. Is there a separate test install for each version?

    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:
