  1. Do you really need/want to support 32 bit? I mean... if it's for vision, you probably use a large size of memory, no? I wish I could offer my collaboration but calling external code is not really my cup of tea, so I'd probably be mostly useless anyway. If you are interested in getting in touch with tensorflow users to have their feedback, get in touch with me via PM.
  2. My advice is to "look into CXP", I never got round to trying the bitflow HW + driver which they claim is fully compatible with LabVIEW, CXP seems to be the future of industrial high res / high speed vision. So if you're looking to build a vision system for the next 10 years, I think you should test out bitflow's CXP option. I'm a bit disappointed with NI's "wait n see" approach with CXP, last I asked the answer was "we don't think the ROI is big enough". Which is a fair point but leaves NI Vision with very limited options. CXP open a lot of options in term of cameras. Good luck to you, and - again - if you do test bitflow cxp framegrabber in LabVIEW i'd love to hear how it works.
  3. I've never tried that, do you have a link to the thunderbolt extention specs? I'd be curious to know if it works well. I think camera-link is not the best option for new product design, my first advice would be to look into CoaXPress. Plus NI-PCIe 1430 and 1433 almost went EOL about 18 month ago.
  4. Graftek Imaging the website does give a few words about the history : https://graftek.biz/aboutus
  5. I have a "rule" something quite basic like "VisionSystemRef_CameraName_BufferType_Index" For the buffer type I have a typedef with a few options : - "Acq" for acquisition only buffer, I never do any processing on these, they are used only to store an image that has just been acquired from a camera - "Save" buffers reserved to store images that will be saved to disk - "Proc" for processing - "Disp" buffers reserved for images to be displayed on the UI So I use the "image copy" VI a lot do to transfer image data from a buffer to another
  6. I can download the files from this thread just fine. I'll try sending you a private message with the VI
  7. When I had to pick one, the options I considered were : DQMH AF JKI SMO G# ALOHA my own that would be much better than all of the above combined I picked DQMH because I love the API tester the scripting tools, also I feel there is a somewhat large community adoption and support.
  8. NI offfers an electrical power toolkit : http://zone.ni.com/reference/en-XX/help/373375G-01/
  9. Oh yes, I did burn my fingers with that one, I believe you get then sorted on their last modification date or something alike. Edit : oh, and by the way : https://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW-Idea-Exchange/Add-Explicit-Decoration-References-to-LabVIEW/idi-p/975701
  10. I agree with Rolf, I think most people are not as strict as you are. And while we're at it, what version of english should be used? American english or British english or any other flavour. I thought about this when I read capitalising spelt with "z" 😂
  11. maybe this thread can help you, at the end it give the list of forbidden characters.
  12. Great idea! Although I attended your NIWeek presentation in 2017 VIMs are still not a reflex for me... I need to dig in!
  13. Anyone knows if there is a way to do a RegExp search on a maps?
  14. Ok, great. I guess we would need Ton's permission if we wanted to set up an online repo - GitHub for instance - for this package, right?
  15. Would you consider making this open source?
  16. That's enough for my need, thank you very much for being so quick to make the fix!
  17. Is there a way to change the MCL column width once the XControl is dropped on a front panel? Great tool!
  18. I use evernote to keep track of a lot of things in my life, both personal and professional. When I see articles / posts / code that I really want to keep, I copy the content into a note. If it's less important I just copy the link into a note. And I use tags to facilitate latter search.
  19. The being simple doesn't mean it's going to execute fast, I think there is more to optimise in the code inside the loop than anything else. That said, one thing that might help (again depending on what's in the loop) is to change the while loop for a timed loop to which you can give the highest priority. Also if you have some NI Hardware available you could use the clock as the reference for the loop, but that would probably improve jitter more than raw speed.
  20. Dating will always be a problem for software engineers.
  21. I reported this issue to NI, they created a CAR 732888. LabVIEW should handle broken stuff in ~\LabVIEW XXXX\project\ subfolders.
  22. It's 1.4.0.15, if you need any help in trying to reproduce this behaviour you can PM me.
  23. Ha, I think I found the issue, I should have let VIPM mass compile the package after installing it. I had to move "Create control.vi" out of the C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2018\project\UI Tools\Control Generator, open it, mass compile it place it back and now it all works fine.
  24. After installing the latest version with VIPM on my LabVIEW 2018 SP1 32 bit, every time I try to run LabVIEW, it crashes. I deleted the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2018\project\UI Tools and then no more crash. Any idea?
