    Control References Node

    Did RegisterAddon.exe not run at all, or are you thinking it ran with incorrect privileges? I do see RegisterAddon.exe run every time I install.

    Control References Node

    I think the included license is OK, we have a handful of users successfully using the trial, though you're the first to try it on Windows 10 (I don't see why that would matter). I did see the invalid status come up once when I was testing, though I don't remember the cause. If you uninstall the EM Control Refs package and re-install it, does it fix the issue? Would you be able to post a screenshot of what you're seeing? Thanks!

    Control References Node

    Language-independent update just landed! For those curious, the node was creating some property nodes and setting the selected properties by the property's name, which varies from one language to another. We just needed to update it so that they were set by the property's unique ID.

    Control References Node

    For right now, this node only support English LabVIEW installations. We are working on a language independent update.

    Control References Node

    We have an internal tool at Erdos Miller that we've turned into a product. It's a node that outputs a cluster of references to all controls on the front panel. A free trial is available for download here: http://info.erdosmiller.com/node-control-references-software-download-v1 It replaces code like this: With a single node: It also lets you: Bind the output type to a typedef. Include a reference to the owning VI and/or the owning VI's front panel. Exclude references to controls above or to the left of the origin. Optionally exclude controls individually. Controls on tabs are organized into page clusters. Try it out and let us know what you think!

    Default VI file name

    Using this is almost assuredly a violation of license agreements: http://www.hmilch.net/h/labview

    XNodes Prevent Inlining

    Why stop there? It seems like there are a few nodes that disallow inlining even though it seems like it should be fine. Now we can just wrap them in an Error Ring.xnode!

    XNodes Prevent Inlining

    I think you can! It looks like the compiler exception doesn't check the fully qualified name. You can put your inline-safe XNodes inside libraries to namespace them, and name them all Error Ring.xnode.

    XNodes Prevent Inlining

    I think there is just a special case that LabVIEW knows the XNode named "Error Ring.xnode" can be inlined. If I rename an XNode to Error Ring.xnode, the aforementioned error goes away. I wonder if there is a way to whitelist other XNodes.

    XNodes Prevent Inlining

    There is a VI in the same directory as the Error Ring XNode named XSFP_ReplaceSelfWithGenCode.vi. I don't know if this has anything to do with this behavior. I've seen some private methods prefixed with XSFP - any idea what it stands for? That VI is not a member of the XNode, but I agree that none of the XNode's abilities or properties look like they have anything to do with the inlinability.

    XNodes Prevent Inlining

    I did , and the owning VI shows no error when it's replaced with it's generated code.

    XNodes Prevent Inlining

    Hmm Error Ring XNode does work for me, but others that I think should be inlinable are not, like the Butterworth Coefficients XNode.

    XNodes Prevent Inlining

    I'm also seeing this if the XNode contains only nodes that can be inlined. It appears that a VI that uses any XNode cannot be inlined, regardless of whether the generated code can be inlined or not.

    XNodes Prevent Inlining

    It seems that using an XNode in a VI in which inlining is enabled always generates the error: "This object is not allowed in a VI on which you enabled inlining. Disable inlining or remove this object." Is this always true, or is there some XNode ability that would allow it to be inlined?

    LV2017 Parallel DVR Access Bug?

    I can confirm as well. Parallel read-only access is broken until this is fixed. I played around with the bug a little bit, and it appeared as though up-to-date data fails to make it out of the SubVI when parallel read mode is enabled (super weird).
