  13. I will be there with 2 others. Thanks
  14. http://zone.ni.com/devzone/cda/tut/p/id/6893 There's a table here that shows 8.2.1 is the earliest version compatible with Vista x32 or x64. I couldn't install 8.6.x on Win7 even messing with the Compatibility settings. I had to install a WinXP Virtual Machine. It works pretty good, but networking to an RT system can be a pain since it has to pass through a virtual network card to get to real one. I have not tried any other hardware.
  15. It does look interesting. I guess somebody at Viewpoint needs a lesson in marketing. I wonder how it compares to the JKISVN tool?
  16. You should be able to read a devices serial number using DAQmx property nodes without LabVIEW installed. Don't have my laptop right now so I can't verify this. If this is correct, there's no reason to change how you currently doing this. I would write the serial number to a config file key so it can be easily changed if they ever need to change the card. You could even create a utility or routine in your application to let the user select the proper card if the listed serial number isn't found in the system.

  18. This has become somewhat of a tradition over last several NIWeek's. If you haven't been to The Ginger Man, and you enjoy a cold beer or two, this is the place to meet. They have about 100 differnt beers on tap and a nice outdoor seating area where we grab a couple tables. So if you're getting to Austin on Sunday, people usually start showing up around 8:00. Look for us out back. Directions and more info on The Ginger Man
  19. I finally got around to signing up. We've decided to drive down this year, so we will have a vehichle and could take 2 or 3 others.

    Introduction Invoking this plugin from the block diagram allows you to auotmagically align the selected terminal labels to the specified position. If no terminals are selected, all terminal labels will be moved to the specified position. It has individual selections for Controls and Indicators. This currently does not support any front panel aligning. Hope you find this useful. Let me know if you want more positions or front panel support. Steps to Complete This plugin is packaged for use with the JKI VIPM. Download the VIPM package, right click and select "Add To VIPM Library", then sele
  24. That was part of it as well. I already had the Initialization code done when I realized I couldn't get the "TextLables" property for an Event Straucture. It looks to make sure that the selected item is either a panel control OR a diagram terminal AND that there's an Event Structure or the menu won't show. I like the idea doing the search at this stage so the menu only shows if there's a linked Event Frame.
  25. I guess I should have explained why I'm building the plugin. If the terminal is in the Event Frame, you can just double click the control and it will bring you to the correct Event Frame. Don't need a plugin for that. And if you're already looking at it in the code, you're already there as well. Sometimes the terminal is not in the Event Frame it's linked to, and that's was going to be the real purpose of this plugin. Say you double click a control and it gets highlighted in the code, but it's not in the Event Structure, but you know there's an Event configured for it. You can now right clic
