  1. Maybe this thread can help, if you haven't seen it before mcduff
  2. The Matio library uses the old .mat file format; the new .mat format is based on HDF. Try one of HDF libraries to read your .mat, or re-save your file using the old version. mcduff
  3. It appears that NI is a hardware company rather than a software company. LabVIEW is developed to drive sales of hardware. This is similar to Apple, OS X, iOS, etc, are all developed to drive sales of hardware. mcduff
  4. Please correct my misunderstanding, the biggest difference between Maps and Variant attributes are Maps: Keys can be anything (all keys the same type), but all "attributes" need to be the same type. Variant: Keys need to be strings, but "attributes" can be different types. The structure seems similar, although slightly different. mcduff
  5. @Aristos Queue I haven't used NXG yet, but I heard that a future feature was the ability to drop other code snippets in the the block diagram. For example, I heard that it would be possible to drop some C code, Matlab "script" code, or python code directly in the block diagram. Is that still going to be a feature? Cheers, mcduff
  6. There is important aspect to the Front Panel defer updates nodes, this is from the help When you set this property to TRUE, LabVIEW redraws any front panel objects with pending changes then defers all new requests for front panel updates. For example, controls and indicators do not redraw when you change their properties or values. If the operating system requests a redraw, such as if the window is no longer behind another window, LabVIEW redraws the front panel with the current properties instead of the original properties. If FALSE, LabVIEW immediately redraws the changed elements of th
  7. Try this link for Material Design https://materialdesignicons.com/ You can do an advanced export where you can change the color.
  8. Wow. You picked the hardest thing to start with. Start with the following. http://www.ni.com/getting-started/labview-basics/ http://www.ni.com/academic/students/learn/ http://www.learnni.com/ http://sine.ni.com/myni/self-paced-training/app/main.xhtml http://www.ni.com/training/labview/ https://labviewwiki.org/wiki/Home/
  9. I saw a seminar by the person who created the program. It basically converts LabVIEW code to an Arduino script such that the Arduino can run without being attached to a computer/LabVIEW etc. I believe you can still communicate with a PC if desired. mcduff
  10. @drjdpowell Would you happen to have a document that has HDF5 attributes needed to make an HDF5 netCDF-4 compliant. I have downloaded some example netCDF-4 files and the attributes among them are slightly different. In addition, finding information on this site is not straightforward. Thanks for your help. Regards, mcduff
  11. Not sure if VIPM could do this, but, if it could add the following lines to the LabVIEW ini file, ExternalNodesEnabled=True XNodeWizardMode=True I think the VIMs would work in 2009+, I don't have the versions to test it. mcduff
  12. THANKS!! Sorry for shouting, I was missing SuperSecretListboxStuff=True. Cheers, mcduff
  13. Bump. Sorry to keep asking, but does anybody know the answer to the following? "Excuse my stupidity, but I put that "EnableSecretPopups=True" in my INI, but still cannot find the option to enable multiple symbols in a MCLB. Not sure if I am looking in the wrong spot or if I need another INI key." Thanks mcduff
  14. I think the INI is EnableSecretPopups=True´╗┐. Then you can enable it for any MCLB, and I think tree. It also gives other menus like having parts of a button move or grow with a button as it is resized. Excuse my stupidity, but I put that "EnableSecretPopups=True" in my INI, but still cannot find the option to enable multiple symbols in a MCLB. Not sure if I am looking in the wrong spot or if I need another INI key. Thanks mcduff
  15. Looks like something form NI's mac days, below is a screenshot from proFit, a mac plotting program, they look pretty similar.
