  1. You might try turning off Nagling. http://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/quot-TCP-Write-quot-Timeout-error-56-seems-to-do-not-work/m-p/2123100#M689051 http://digital.ni.com/public.nsf/allkb/7EFCA5D83B59DFDC86256D60007F5839
  2. Every time I read "brown nodes" I think of this unicode character... Not that they are bad, they just shouldn't be there.
  3. I feel a sourcender discussion brewing... http://lavag.org/topic/8689-need-lv-users-to-help-change-english-language-and-possibly-other/
  4. My new job has me starting from scratch DB wise. I worked with a homegrown schema for many years, but it doesn't match my needs here and I want to make this supportable log term (next poor soul), so I was thinking of using the out-of-box schema with MySQL. I've got MyQL 5.1 and TS 2010 installed; the TS 2010 MySQL implementation uses INSERT statements which lack my one pet peeve, a timestamp data type. I think this may be because MySQL at the time 2010 was developed only had a date-time data type. Does anyone know if a newer version of TestStand includes support for a timestamp data type with the MySQL template?
  5. Is there any SSH love added to 2014? The Internet Toolkit went unsupported last year and it's been 4 years of waiting for native SSH. Something I can actually use would be far better than a new icon or bundling the Report Generation Toolkit ( that my boss just purchased two weeks ago and is now part of Pro; thanks sales rep; we'll have to remember that when SSP renewal comes around ).
  6. The Robust CSV package from the Code Repository includes error handling and can handle strings containing commas and cr/lf http://lavag.org/files/file/239-robust-csv/ Finally, something that can manage crlf !
  7. I couldn't change the original NI dialog back in 2011 (just my own copy). See this Idea Exchange discussion: http://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW-Idea-Exchange/Calendar-control-that-does-not-block-the-GUI/idc-p/1419606
  8. Well, I downloaded the twitter package, that loaded the oauth library. I created my twitter keys, then wrote a simple Open - Post tweet - Close example. @pbrooks100 WINNING! Creating keys: https://dev.twitter.com/discussions/2530 That's enough for one day, I might hurt myself...
  9. Anyone have experience with automating salesforce.com login or data loading? I've been looking at some really cludgy PHP / Mozilla automation that fails with various timeouts, seemingly insignificant web page layout changes, Mozilla auto-update or phases of the moon . I did some simple stuff a year or two ago with Agile, but salesforce.com seems to use different authentication.
  10. I tried to help someone on the dark side to send calendar VTODO emails to remind an operator to perform some action on a later date (preventative maintenance or calibration, something like that). http://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/Gmail-draft-or-delay-message/m-p/2118024/highlight/true#M688056
  11. I've been writing shell scripts to self-test a product recently, and needed to use dropbear to transfer the results to a network location. The author of dropbear had this python implementation of PBKDF2 posted on his site. Maybe I should learn more about LabPython ( Aussies are a smart bunch! )
  12. I searched a bit and it appears that NI has some mDNS capability built in to find LXI devices using NI-VISA. http://www.ni.com/newsletter/50597/en/ Maybe there is a way to get a list of all mDNS devices (not just LXI) on the local net using some lower level VISA calls. I would ask this sort of question on the Instrument Control board of the NI forums. http://forums.ni.com/t5/Instrument-Control-GPIB-Serial/bd-p/140
  13. Speaking of teensy arms... http://youtu.be/93B072j-E3I
  14. Maybe some will never need to take a physical, on-site test again... Klout, anyone?
  15. found on stackoverflow: ( http://stackoverflow.com/questions/187768/can-i-show-file-copy-progress-using-fileinfo-copyto-in-net )
  16. I think that these RTE Install options are still valid: Silent Installation of the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine
  17. It would be nice for anyone else looking to do this. Glad it was useful for you
  18. I posted something similar on the NI forums several years ago. Someone pointed out to me there that some apps will generate opening and closing quotes (rather than just straight quotes) when saving as CSV. Here is some opening and closing quotes data based on the wikipedia entry for CSV files example that you could test with: Year,Make,Model,Description,Price1997,Ford,E350, “ac, abs, moon”,3000.001999,Chevy,“Venture ““Extended Edition”””,“”,4900.001999,Chevy,“ Venture ““ Extended Edition, Very Large”””,“”,5000.001996,Jeep,Grand Cherokee,“MUST SELL!air, moon roof, loaded”,4799.00 My VI can be found here: http://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/Read-csv-file-with-double-quotes/m-p/1591640#M580390
  19. I had (but lost) some VIs that were knock-offs of the DB Tools List Table and the related Schema VIs. I recreated them fairly quickly this morning. These schema queries return all of a type for a DB, which includes internal. Your tables and views will normally be of a type "dbo". You will have to filter for those in LV. I tried to query my DB for procedures and I did not see a column to filter between system and my own. Google the selected Schema type to get the column names, but most are fairly obvious. If you need to create typdefs for a collection of tables, you can use this scripting VI that I uploaded on the NI Community forums a while back. https://decibel.ni.com/content/docs/DOC-19512 ADO Schema.llb (LV2012)
  20. If you need to store test specific information (operator, temperature, equipment name & serial number etc... ) with the streaming data, you can write custom properties to the TDMS file. This example from the NI forum works well., just create your own arrays of property names and values to be stored... ( is this the same as the question asked on the NI forums? http://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/Separating-TDMS-file-data-and-playing-it-back/m-p/2727403#M807331 )
  21. Well, it's not a complete trademark violation, but sounds similar http://www.calbay.com/products-ivvivi.php
