creating user libraries

Recommended Posts

Is creating user libraries as simple as saving all my vis in user.lib folder or there is something more involved in it. I would also like to save all my controls so like I pick the controls from Modern, Silver palletes, I have another pallete which contains all the controls I design. Please guide me in the right direction, appreciate being the member of lavag.

Kind Regards

Populating the user.lib palette is indeed as simple as saving into the user.lib directory. However, if by "creating a user library" you mean creating a distribution package for sharing your VIs with other people, then jgcode is right: VI Package Manager is your best tool for packaging and distributing a block of VIs... and, yes, there is a free version that does the basics that will probably suffice for you.

As for the controls in the palettes... Tools >> Advanced >> Edit Palette Set...

That will launch the palette editor. Create a new palette in the front panel palette (by right clicking) and then set it to sync a particular directory on disk. Any controls you save to that directory will be picked up the next time you restart LV.
