Name: Label Manager

Type: Right Click Framework Plugin

LabVIEW version: 8.2.1

Description:

Label Manager is Right-Click-Framework plugin for quick and ergonomic management of text labels styles. Styles are defined as text properties combined with alignment against label owning objects. They may be applied to any text label at block diagram or front panel, also with multiple selection. Once style is set to the label, the assignment is being remembered and may be updated on any change.

Installation

Preferably install VIP package with VI Package Manager

Alternatively you may download ZIP and extract Label Manager folder to <LabVIEW Folder>\resource\JKI\RCF\Plugins\ and restart RCF

Dependencies:

OpenG Variant Config

JKI State Machine

Functionality

  • - Generate label style from selection (retrieves both text attributes and alignment to label owning object if any)
  • - Apply any style to currently selected text labels (also finding labels belonging to selected objects and showing up hidden labels)
  • - Labels remember their style - when any of text attributes or label relative position has changed, original style may be recovered with single click (even after closing VI and opening it again). This association may be also removed.
  • - Works for both Block Diagram and Front Panel labels
  • - Graphically manage label styles

The name is editable in the listbox. Just like changing file names in Explorer - click on the new style to select it and after a while click again and the name becomes highlighted to edit (as opposed to item selection highlighting). I agree, it is not too intuitive... Any idea how it should look like?

While I was trying this out, I realized that the download is a zip and not a VIPM package. I made a VIPM package, using your readme documenation. Should I upload it here, or did you have some reason for not making a VIPM package?

The only reason is that it was submitted in pre VIPM 2010 age. Please just send me the package and I'll add it to download. And thanks for the effort.
