  1. Ok, I implemented it like suggested and it's working fine. Nevertheless I'm semi-happy with this solution because I have now a dependency to JSON text in a toolkit where I havn't had it before. One final question for my understanding (see the following picture). In opposite to the screenshot of my first post, I connect now the original array with all variant data information to "From JSON Text.vim". Nevertheless the value can still not be reconstructed. Why?
  2. Ok, it took a while but yes, you're right. How can LabVIEW know the data type of a variant if the only you offer is the value information. It can't. But: JKI JSON can ... I tested it shortly and somehow they are able to reconstruct the variant. I didn't had the time to went deeper into the code but I assume that they take a closer look to the data. E.g. everything that comes in " " must be a string. Everything without must be a number, enum, bool, ... every number with a . included must be a floating point. That's my assumption without seeing the code. I also assume that the input variant and the output variant might be not exactly the same if there are unusual data types used. The problem on JKI JSON is the low speed in comparison to JSON text - so I would highly prefer to go on using JSON text. I'm not sure if there is a way to combine the best of both worlds but it would be really cool.
  3. Sorry, if you're wondering about the variant to data ... I did a mistake. In my project code it looks like in the following screenshot. But the result / problem stays the same: JSON_Text_test.vi
  4. Hi! I have to convert a dynamically generated array into a JSON string and back. Unfortunately I found that the un-flatten method loses the variant data. See the screenshot of FP and BD and the comments inside. JSON_Text_test.vi Is this a bug in JSON Text or is my data-construction not supported as expected? In case of the letter I have modify huge parts of my code. So I hope that it is a bug 😉 The 2nd thing I recognized is that the name "Value" of the cluster is not used during flatten. Instead the name of the connected constant / control / line is used. I found the green VI ("Set Data Name__ogtk.vi") at OpenG Toolkit that allows me to programmatically set the variant data name. As you can imagine I would prefer not to need the OpenG VI. Thanks in advance for your kind help 🙂
  5. Yes - checked it and I can confirm that it is working 👍
  6. done, looking forward to KuDos https://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW-Idea-Exchange/VI-Scripting-Add-property-quot-MissingFileName-quot-to-all/idi-p/4022884
  7. If the original VI does not exist any more, you can use the property "MissingVIName" to get its name (I'm using LV2019SP1). I created a VI that recursively replaces all missing VIs based on a lookup table. So far this works fine with missing VI but it does not work with missing *.ctl files (type def) for controls or constants because there is no "MissingTypeDef" property available. Does anybody have an idea how to get the missing ctl-file name? Thanks in advance!
