I put together a simple xnode to relabel event registration reference wires that feed into dynamic events of event structures. With the increasing use of event based messaging systems, I found myself manually changing the name of event registration references to clarify the event name when multiple event registration references were used in an object. I did this by manually creating a cluster constant on the build cluster before the dynamic registration terminal on the event structure and renaming each registration reference. Being a lazy programmer, this seemed tedious after a few times so I decided to attempt to create an Xnode to accomplish the same thing faster. This video shows the "problem" and the potential solution using the xnode: Re-Label Xnode - Event Registration Here's another example showing another use case with ShaunR's VIM HAL Demo code: Re-Label Use Case ShaunR HAL Demo This may have been done before or there may be an easier way to do this, but I wanted to throw it out here to see if there's any interest and to see if people will try it out and give feedback. I've found it works best using quick drop for initial use (highlight wire, CTRL-Space,type re-label, CTRL-I, type new name in dialog) and for replacing or renaming an existing instance on the diagram (highlight existing xnode, CTRL-Space, type re-label, CTRL-P, type revised name in dialog). You can also use directly from the palette, but I found much faster from quick drop and also seen a couple crashes replacing through the pallete. The Double Click ability is also a work in progress. Its purpose is to allow you to quickly rename the relabel with the same dialog box, but when it executes it breaks the wire on the output connection. You can still re-wire it to the event structure, but you will have to open the Event Structure Edit Events menu to get the event to "Re-link". Something I'm trying to avoid. The Xnode generated code is simply a pass through wire with the output terminal renamed to the label of your choice. This seems to update attached event structures. - B sobosoft_llc_lib_diagram_tools-220.127.116.11.vip
