  1. Huh. Yeah, I didn't expect this. Doesn't this suppose that the user hasn't changed the displayed label text for the subVI?
  2. Has anyone found any properties or methods associated with malleable VIs? Specifically, I was hoping to find a way to invoke the "Convert Instance VI to Standard VI" function after confirming that a selected VI was indeed malleable. LabVIEW reports the class type of a selected malleable VI on the block diagram as a standard Sub VI, and I didn't see any properties/methods under the VI class. I'm exploring what it would look like to make a utility to convert a malleable VI into a polymorphic VI for the purpose of backwards compatibility. I'd like to have a reference library that uses
  3. CAR 671221 was fixed in LabVIEW 2017 SP1. The best place to look is in the bug fixes list for the appropriate LabVIEW version (here is 2017 and 2018) or in the patch details (2017 and 2018). As you'll notice, this specific CAR number is not called out on any of these pages. Not every CAR that is fixed is published online, but you can always contact the support team to determine if a specific CAR was fixed.
  4. That's a good point that I hadn't considered. In my mind the usefulness of the Write VI is more of the case of quickly initializing or otherwise performing a reset/overwrite of the existing value of the DVR, and to be used in conjunction with the IPE structure and the read/modify/write paradigm as normal. An example for me recently is needing to ensure that a DVR used throughout the application was initialized to defaults after a certain sequence had executed. Hence, wiring a constant to this VI was much more convenient. Does that seem more reasonable, or still prone to error rather than helpf
  5. The introduction of parallel, read-only access for DVRs in LabVIEW 2017 adds a great deal of flexibility to using DVRs to monitor values in parallel executions of code. Fo\The downside of this, of course, is the necessity of using the In Place Element (IPE) throughout your code simply to read the value. Having IPEs throughout your code just to read a value both takes up block diagram real estate and also takes more clicks than desirable to insert. Similarly, though less frequently, there are times when you only need to update the value within a DVR without actually performing any logic in
