Why Auto Grow should be enabled

Recommended Posts

I despise the practice of coloring structures. You guys are hitting all my pet peeves, sheesh. unsure.gif

You don't like that when you wire an error cluster into a case selector you get red on the error case and green on the no error case? I love that!

Actually it would have been nice if execution highlighting revealed the hidden code, but it did not do so in my case.

I tried very hard to use Auto-Grow (I kept using it for over 2 years) and eventually I gave up.

I eventually saw more draw backs in using it than advantages.

So, I have to disagree too.

I started my LabVIEW life hating Auto Grow; I don't know why or when, but I started using it again a while ago. Anyway, now I only hate it when I'm pasting or typing into a string control near the edge of a structure. I think the only thing I like it for is when I'm trying to clean up my BD - it keeps me honest when resizing.

I love that too!

I just hate any other colors on any other structures.

Can you elaborate?

My thoughts exactly.

How about create constant?

Or create anything near the edge of the structure. Or when you change a typedef and all your typedef constants reset to 'align vertical' and your structure grows to fit?

Do I really need to (see below)? :shifty:

I actually don't mind it too much in regular VI, but I do not like it at all in state machine.

Oh - OK - I thought you'd chimed in due to other reasons that hadn't already been mentioned. I'm the same as far as a state machine goes - I turn it off when I'm working on those.
