Create a project template on Labview enviroment

Recommended Posts

Dear All,

I'm wondering if it is possibile to create a project template which organizes my labview project as I like the most, does anyone know if it is possible to do that?

Thank you in advance.

Regards.

Thank you for the prompt reply. I read the post you have suggested to read, even though that post is very intersting it is not what I would like to do, I would like to build a new project, create on the project some virtual folders (the virtual folders I always create on my projects) and then I would like to save it as template. Therefore it will be very easy to create a new project starting from that template with the virtual folder I usually create on every project I do.

(I hope it was clear) Do you think it is possible to do that?

Regards.

If I understand correctly what you are asking...

There is no such thing as a .lvproj template but why not just create the above .lvproj file once then every time you want it, copy it manually, or write some simple tool to make a copy of it?

I think you get the target but, why I have to create a new tool when labview already has got it? I mean the same tool we normally use when we want to add a new VI or Control starting from the custom templates VIs and Controls.

I normally copy an existing project to a new folder, and they I run a rename and relinking VI that also updates all VI icons.

I use components from GOOP development suite to do the automatic icon generation:

This is a very nice trick, but I do not want to copy every VIs I've created on a different project, I just want a template which allows me to have an entry point to build my new project and which creates the structure which usually I use on every project I want to develop. I think the suggestion of JCODE is a good advise the only thing which is missing is that you can't call the template from the "New window" which is opened when you click on the New menu under the File menu of labview....

No, but you can install the tool under <wizard> or <project> yourself and get the same effect.
