  1. I just came across this: Apparently there's an XNode developers forum somewhere.
  2. That's my point. No XControls, no physical quantities. If LV 20xxis abandoned I'm doomed!
  3. 1. I like to use physical quantities when the values represent physical quantities (such as is common with device drivers). 2. When the code to run a control starts getting complicated, and the owning VI is already complicated, I like to encapsulate the code that runs the control into an XControl. Am I doomed?
  4. Ok. As an alternative, is there a way to get the tab key to function as a tool selector on a block diagram that's in a SubPanel of a running VI? (It seems that the VI that owns the SubPanel is swallowing the keystrokes).
  5. I want to turn AutoTool on. Shift-Tab toggles AutoTool on/off. That would be useful if there is a way to check the state of AutoTool.
  6. Is it possible to programmatically change the inheritance of a LV class?
  7. I'm working on a test executive framework (for both test execution and development). The test step editor places the block diagram of a test wrapper VI in a SubPanel. It works fine, but when the framework is running, within that panel, you can't change tools by tabbing. I want the test executive to turn on AutoTool selection so the test engineers using it won't have to.
  8. Thanks for the reply. Close, but that will just toggle the state. I need to set the state to ON.
  9. Is it possible to programmatically turn Automatic Tool Selection on & off? I found a ToolNumber property, but it always throws error 1028 (LabVIEW: (Hex 0x404) Attribute selector is invalid). I have no idea what that means.
  10. If you have a malleable VI (.vim) inside an XNode, and an instance of that .vim has a declined frame of a type specialization structure, and inside that declined frame you call a VI owned by the XNode, and you have a build spec that copies and renames the XNode, Then that renamed copy of the XNode will be broken because the item in the declined frame isn't properly linked.
  11. Is this what you are trying to do? My Script.vi My Template.vi Setup Static VI Ref.vi
  12. I'm pretty sure that you've built your block diagram incorrectly. Just do it right and it will work fine. (Since you didn't provide any code, I can't be more specific than that.)
  13. Version 1.0.0


    I think I've finalized my example for the XNode UpdateState ability. This is a very important ability. Failure to properly manage the update process can have dire consequences.
