  1. Any chance this is still active? I recognize both arguments for auto-populating folders. In the end, I wind up using them because they are very useful for navigating my reusable libraries and tool-kits, and for keeping that stuff synced with source control. Right now I'm checking in a bunch of stuff over a slow VPN and it would be great if LabVIEW would just ignore these .scc files.
  2. I'm interested in doing this and running into the same problem. What do you mean when you say 'paste over'? Ctl.Replace? Ctl.DataOp.PasteData?
  3. Looks like wget can do what we need. Speed is not especially important here. According to the documentation, it can even do some posting, which will be needed. Thanks for the tip!
  4. We considered this. From what I understand, there are ways to silently install RTE's from the command line, which would be necessary. Unfortunately, I'm not sure 2016 will work on Windows XP (I know), which constitutes a significant minority of our systems. In fact the LabVIEW/OS-support page specifically says "LabVIEW will drop support for Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2003 as of July 1, 2016. Versions of LabVIEW that ship after July 1, 2016 will not install or run on Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows Server 2003." So this is probably a no-go.
  5. Ok anyone who can manage to contain their laughter for a minute, help me out with this. I need exactly what's in the title. Due to the deprecation of TLS1.0 and SSL3, we're disabling both on our web server that receives status information from hundreds of systems across the country via HTTPS. Some of the systems run Windows 7, some Windows XP. All of them run applications built in LV 2012sp1. In the past we've used the NI HTTP client VIs, which work well, and still work for some (?) Win7 systems. They don't work for the Windows XP systems. Are these VI's just a wrapper for the OS's HTTP client (IE)? We've also been down the .net WebRequest path, but from what I can tell the webclient class doesn't support any security protocols past TLS1.0, at least not in .net 2.0, and the HTTPClient class wasn't introduced until .net 4.5, which LV doesn't support, at least not in 2012 sp1. Lastly, we're considering the Encryption Compendium being offered in the JKI package manager, but it's 629 pounds, and if there's a way to do this without it, it would be preferred. Also we're not sure it would work with the given constraints. Has anyone used it/know anything about it? Any help is appreciated.
  6. shoneill, This was my first thought, but I've not been able to find a generic xControl class, only classes of xControls currently in memory, and xControl project classes, which I haven't yet led anywhere productive. If you can show where a generic xControl class exists in the class hierarchy, this may be the key to the problem.
  7. For unspecified reasons, I want to be able to resolve which control has been clicked on from a pane mouse down event. Our application is somewhat large and makes extensive use of sub-panels, so registering every control individually, statically or dynamically, would be a lot of work, maybe not very efficient, and would require ongoing resource tracking once registered, so the pane mouse down event in a top level VI would be preferred. I've written a VI that takes a pane reference and pane coordinates (hypothetically from a mouse down event) and resolves the first, if it exists, control that resides on that pane and contains those coordinates within its bounds. The VI also considers the control class, and if it is a subpanel, gets the inserted VI, it's panel, and any pane that contains the coordinates and recurses. In this manner, the VI traverses arbitrarily deep nested subpanels until it gets to the control that was clicked on. This is where it gets (more) complicated. I also want to traverse xControls. When a control within an xcontrol is clicked on, I want the reference to the (sub?) control, not the xcontrol. It is simple enough to detect whether a control is in fact an xcontrol, but apparently more challenging to get any more information than that. So my questions are these: From an control reference where IsXclt=T, is there a way to get a reference to the xcontrols panes or some owner (panel, facade vi, clone name)? I realize I could do this by setting a custom property of the xcontrol, but then it would not be generic to xcontrols and would again require sprawling coding effort. or Is there an entirely different and simpler way to achieve what I am proposing in the first paragraph? This is in LV2012sp1 btw. Thanks for reading; any help or suggestions would be appreciated!
