  1. Thanks everyone for the great suggestions. I can't wait to try these.
  2. Hello, I recently discovered a new function in LabVIEW 2019 called ‘Get Command Line Arguments.vi’. It allows an application build from LabVIEW to be launched and accept arguments from another application. The arguments come in the form of a string array. I was not aware of this but it is and has been possible for some time to do the same thing using the ‘Application:Command Line Arguments property node. I often call applications to perform specific tasks from my main program. It is reasonable to ask ‘why not simply embed the functi
  3. Hi Rolf, Thank you for responding. I was starting to think I am the only person that builds LabVIEW applications with a Mac. I don't think the root cause is a driver or graphics card because it happens on every Mac I have when I use LabVIEW 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. The problem with the yellow icons and the yellow graph don't happen with LabVIEW 2015 or earlier. The root cause seems to be the invoke node that takes a reference of a vi and gets it's image data. The 256 bit color palette array in the cluster bundle is being corrupted by the application builder. So (you can s
  4. After living with this for 5 years, I have finally figured out the solution for the yellow plots. The root-cause of the yellow plots appears to be that the standard 256 color palette contained in a cluster coming out of an invoke node (FP.Get Image) become corrupted by the application builder on Mac OS X. The colors when running source code vs. when build into an application are very different. My workaround is to bundle the 256 colors directly in the source code. Of course, I am using 8-bit color. I would assume that if a higher bit-depth is needed, then a different set of reference c
  5. Hello, When I build an application with LabVIEW for Mac OS X (2016 through 2020), the icon is yellow and when I save a plot of data, the png is yellow as well. Running the source code is fine, the icons are normal (black text, white background) and my png plots of data are normal. Does anyone else see this behavior with the LabVIEW Application builder for Mac OS X? My only option is to continue to use LabVIEW 2015. Main.vi Some Plot.vi try_LV_2020_Save_Plot.aliases try_LV_2020_Save_Plot.lvlps try_LV_2020_Save_Plot.lvproj
