  1. As someone who does a lot of javascript and nodejs programming. I use it all over the place and often wish Labview could parse it as well as some other languages.
  2. Its stuff like this why i don't develop a Windows target and RT Target in the same project any more. Locked classes/libraries are such a pain. I'm not sure that will solve your issue since it would still probably recompile on you. Do you know if the items that are recompiled happen to marked Read Only in the OS? That's caused me issues before on re-compiles and strange saves.
  3. Well partly yes, i do have an issues with this. However, i also have an issue with global dependencies and honestly there may not be away around that based on how labview was designed. I don't have as much experience with Labview as a lot of people here so i'm sure there are lots of use cases where it might be needed. However, i think there are two types of labview "packages". One would be your IDE extensions such as the G-code manager that you linked. These types of packages work well with VIPM and are good for extending the functionality of the labview IDE. However, i think projec
  4. I've considered writing one, however, i have a different philosophy on dependencies and prefer all dependencies not native to labview live underneath the main project file instead of sharing files across projects within user.lib and vi.lib. Pallets would be stored in the user libraries section of the pallet viewer and all pallets would be re-written to point back to the project specific dependencies directors instead of user.lib and vi.lib. Something feels really wrong having to rewrite program files directories to maintain dependencies. I've also considered using NPM, which is the nod
  5. I've been using other languages too much recently. I had totally forgotten about this thread and the general Labview name spacing issues. My dream of project dependencies solely within the project directly may be a dead one until NI changes some things. Even Git Submodules may not be a good solution b/c of the library linking issues highlighted in that thread.
  6. I've been thinking about this issue a lot lately and having recently been writing code in Nodejs, I've been considering writing a labview tool that mirrors some of the functionality of the NPM way of handing Nodejs dependencies. Unfortunately there are pro's and con's to both of the solutions your outline. I personally would avoid #1 at all cost. Checking in re-use code to your project repo is just asking for pain down the road. If you pursue this route, then i would recommend looking into Git Submodules. However, even those are pain to use but are probably a better route then checkin
  7. Welcome to LVOOP... this is one of my biggest gripes about using it for certain things. The work arounds listed above help, but using LVOOP design patterns can make some of the simplest things so heavy. LIke these guys mentioned before, you can make a new class that contains the shift register data of the NI method you want to use and write a custom method for the action want. Then include this class in your parent and pass it around in each child. This sounds like an interesting approach, but lately, LV2013 SP1, i keep getting burned by hacking around the call-by-reference nodes
  8. A tcp/ip server is going to be the most flexible, its just takes more to set up. If you do go with network streams have you seen this white paper? http://www.ni.com/white-paper/12267/en/ You have to set up your streams correctly otherwise you won't be able to connect. Also, i believe if you have to shutdown the "server" stream and re-open it if you want to have a new endpoint connect to it.
  9. He makes some good points but i would guarantee that there are a hundred articles out there that would argue against every point he makes much better than i could. I would say people just need to work with whats best for them. I use GIT and i'm sticking with it. The ease of branching is what made me switch from SVN. Making a branch, testing a change and merging it back in is fast and easy. I will say i do miss the locking aspect of SVN, especially since labview like to randomly touch files in the project.
  10. If this is really command you feel is safe for anyone to send at anytime to the CRIO, have you considered handling this "message in a separate loop on the crio that maintains some crio state information. Then you anyone can send the command at any time and if your CRIO is in a state that can process it, then process it, otherwise discard the message or queue it up for a later time. As far as implementing this i'm not 100% what to tell you. In all my applications i specifically avoid multiple host that have the ability to send commands. I'm not sure if a networked buffered shared
  11. I second Shaun's comment. I have found that using multiple network streams to connect to different clients becomes extremely CPU dependent for crio's, especially if you need fast updates. I'm not 100% sure what you mean buy " transform signal to sound ". I would probably recommend performing this action on the Host computer either way. I would push the raw data to the host and then do your transformation on the host. What i would recommend would be to make a single network stream that handles all the "commands" that the host might need to send to the CRIO. The benefit of this
  12. I've been looking at nodejs a lot lately. Its basically server side javascript. Lets you do the backend and frontend in the same language. Obviously you still need to learn HTML and CSS but i think the browser is the future for HMI and GUI's for most of my projects. Its hard to beat the amount of open source material there is out there for the front end browser experience. I still want to learn C++ for embedded stuff.
  13. This should be 2012 versions. As far as them being a CPU hog, i can't really comment on that. I'm not sure how fast you want to update or what your computer currently is but on most modern computers it shouldn't be too much of a draw. GraphTest.vi GraphUpdate.vi
  14. I was having a similar issue however mine were due to having the gui vi's i put into subpanels be reentrant. In general i've found strip charts behave kind of strangely and you can't really rely on them to update properly. In the end i ended up moving away from the strip chart and instead moving to a x-y graph. Basically i would maintain an array of points and redraw the graph whenever needed with new points. I have attached a quick example of how i did it. Hope it helps its in lab view 2013 SP1 Also, depending on how you are doing things you could simplify your array
