  1. Mostly we use 3 levels for the instrument driver (InstrumentBase <- InstrumentType(e.g. PowerSupply) <- RealInstrumentDriver (but also a simulated type) We currently have 398 classes in our instrument hierarchy, 60 different InstrumentTypes such as: (TemperatureControllers, Robots, WeldingLasers, GlueDispensers, StepperMotors)
  2. I've had issues on Windows 7, but no issues on Windows 10 yet. When our SW needs it and can't find it we let the user install it on the fly running this exe file: MicrosoftEdgeWebView2RuntimeInstallerX64.exe ..and that has never failed yet, maybe it could cause issues if you've installed the 32 bit version first?!?
  3. FYI, I've found the WebVIEW2 WebBrowser integration into LabVIEW + a fancy DataGrid JavaScript library is a much flexible approach. We've posted the LV-64 bit supported WebView2 support here: https://github.com/ANSCenter/LcWebView2 I use http://tabulator.info/ to make nice DataGrids in LabVIEW.
  4. Here is a start of the color selection, can someone see if we can make it faster? ColorPicker_GUI_DrawColorRectangle.vi
  5. I just have to implement it first 🙂 Not sure which UI style would be the best
  6. I would make my own popup, so it looks better, something this:
  7. You just need to add a magical VI here to get it working:
  8. I have several instances where I get null back for different datatypes, what I have to do is just to ignore the Errors from the JSON VIs. So it will convert everything it can' but when trying to convert NULL to a string it will be empty or for an int it will be zero. Ideally it would be good to be able to say when you find Null for: A strings use "" or "NULL" A INT use 0 or -1 For DBL/SGL it uses NaN and that is prefect.
  9. What you could do is to start just using the Singleton Class template, sure it's based on OO, but you don't need to think of that, it's just like a action Engine, but instead of having everything in one VI, you can add several VIs (methods) to the Singleton library (lvlcass), and just because they belong to the same class they all share the same data. You just have to learn how to use the IPE structure to read and modify the shared data.
  10. I guess Vision Express, is using the Express VIs for vision?!? First never use Express VIs ;-). Second open the example VI of tracking objects: Not sure if it's in LV2019, I'm using 2020. LabVIEW 2020\examples\Vision\Tracking Third, start using LV 64-bit,
  11. So always use Singletons instead of FGV when I know I only need one instance of an object, i.e. one memory space that should be shared in my application. Just like a global variable, but using the class to control access to the global data. I've attached a Singleton example that should get you going. The OpenGDS toolkit generates these classes and Access VIs (methods) to make it easy for you. Also I talk a bit about the Singleton pattern and how to create that here: Singletons.zip
  12. I'm very happy for you. Thanks for all your support over the years. Anytime you need any help, just let me know.
  13. If you use reference based OO, then you could avoid extra data copying. If you want to use OO you get lots of extra IDE help function with this free add-on. http://opengds.github.io/
  14. Here is an updated version and more complete version of this LINQ VI LcArray_LINQ.vim
  15. I just have to add this fun vim using your (@drjdpowell) SQLite library. It's LINQ for LabVIEW (I only spent 20 minutes on it so it's a bit rough) LcArray_LINQ.vim
  16. If you Defer Panel Updates, with that save time?
  17. You can fix it in 2 ways. 1. Force open the VI and change the dll call (LabVIEW.exe) to not run in the user interface thread. I've tested this and this will speed it up 1000 times or so but... this could crash LV if this code is running in any of LV's special Application instances like Project Provider App instance (And that is where I need the performance improvements in the OpenGDS UML Modeller). 2. Yes, use a Map or Variant look up. See example VI GetTextRect_AnyThread.vi
  18. Looks Cool Maybe we should make a public framework for this and a big open source library of UI components. FYI you don't need to wire an empty class constant to the create methods 🙂
  19. Many controls have invoke nodes like this to convert the click position to more meaning full info, e.g. where in the X/Y plot you click.
  20. I've not dared to outsource the building to a build server yet, mostly because we get these strange build errors from time to time, like "This VI broke during the build". Also since my team does quite many builds and we would need multiple build servers since a build could take an hour, and sometime I need to build 6 version right away and that could lock up the build server for 6 hours. But if you get it working close to 100% let me know, then we might switch over.
  21. If you switch the disabled structures, it shows you how it works better. Using the Graph.Plot feature is just an option, I would probably use a separate Picture conttrol to the left of the Graph that hold the titles. Or when we want to have nice/different types of plot we use a WebBrowser container with html/javascrip code.
  22. So 2014 should be good then 🙂 Maybe it's time to think about upgrading 😉 2020SP1 is Awesome, especially now with Interface support 🙂 Horisontal BarChart-2014.vi
  23. You can do something like this: Horisontal BarChart.vi
