  1. I have never really trusted breakpoints on wires like this, especially going to indicators. I prefer structures/primitives/VIs. I suspect if the breakpoint was on the outside of the top while loop it would break correctly. Still seems like a bug though.
  2. I had no idea there were so many out there! http://blog.interfacevision.com/design/design-visual-progarmming-languages-snapshots/
  3. Sorry, in the older version you have to do it manually using property nodes.
  4. You can toggle it here: Then each plot can be individually turned on or off
  5. The graphs have a built in ability to allow the plots to be turned on/off at runtime. I think the option is hidden by default and might be called something like Visibility, that will probably solve your problems (1) and (2).
  6. Check this out https://fabiensanglard.net/gebb/index.html I just wish I had time (and the brainpower!) to do a deep dive.
  7. I too have a sprinkling of Win32 calls I have wrapped up over the space of many years. Most are pretty simple helper stuff like bringing a window to the front or printing or getting/setting current directory etc. No rocket science here.
  8. Obviously I don't know what I am talking about, but could this in the future be used to simplify configuring Win32 API DLL calls in LabVIEW? https://blogs.windows.com/windowsdeveloper/2021/01/21/making-win32-apis-more-accessible-to-more-languages/
  9. I totally get you wanting to display newer entries first, but surely this is just a presentation issue and should not be solved at the file level? I really think you are going against the stream here by wanting newer entries first in the actual file on disk. It is almost free to append a bit of text to the end of a file, but constantly rewriting it to prepend seems like a lot of trouble to go to. Rotating the log file is a good idea regardless though. Notepad++ has a "watch" feature that autoreloads the file that is open. It is not without its warts though as I think the Notepad++ wi
  10. That is good to hear.
  11. Tangentially, I use Plastic SCM at work (Unity/C# dev), it really hits the sweet spot of easy to use but powerful DVCS. I believe it is modelled on Git but designed to trivially handle many branches.
  12. OK, so deleting the branch on the remote only deletes it from being used in future, it still exists in the past and can be visualised? Sorry I misunderstood and thought that git did magic to actually remove the branch in the past (which would be a bad thing). I know about rebase but have never thought to use it.
  13. I still don't really get this. I want to see the branches when I look in the past. If the branch on the remote is deleted then I lose a bit of the story of how the code got to that state don't I?
  14. It's been a while but when using the NI Modbus library I found there was some weirdness regarding what the base of the system is. This might just be my misunderstanding of Modbus but for example to read a holding register that was at address 40001 I would actually need to use the Read Holding Register VI with an address of 1 (or 0). This snippet works fine for reading multiple registers, but see the VI I had to write on the left to do the register address translation.
  15. So I am pretty new to GitHub and pull requests (I still am not sure I 100% understand the concept of local and remotes having totally different branches either!) But what is this all about? I have done a bit of digging and it seems the current best practice is indeed to delete the branch when it is no longer needed. This is also a totally strange concept to me. I presume the branch they are talking about here is the remote branch? Confused...
