How do I find the Mark Balla Tool?

Recommended Posts

During a presentation at NI Week, sorry can't remember which one exactly, the presenter suggested that the "Mark Balla Tool" was a great piece of IDE support code to have. This code was a utility VI or VIs that was said to be available on the code repository. I can't seem to find it. Can anyone point me in the correct direction?

Thanks

No it wasn't the Icon editor....maybe it was part of that but this was a smaller, VI manipulation piece. It centered VIs arranged connector panes, etc. Good for cleanup of old code.

Use the search box in the corner to search for his name. At his profile, select the Files tab on the left.

The support topic also has embedded videos explaining how it works

I am currently using Quick drop Ctrl-Space Ctrl-I to start the fixer.

If you want me to post the vis to do this let me know.

thanks again to Nancy for the plug

Here is the step by step of how to call the fixer via Quick Drop.

1: Place the Call Fixer Plugin.vi and subvi folder

QD plugin Call Fixer.zip

in the

National Instruments-LabVIEW 2011-resource-dialog-QuickDrop-plugins

folder.

2: Open Quick Drop (Ctrl-Space) and click on the shortcuts button

The plugin assumes that you have placed the Subvi fixer in the

LabVIEW 2011-project-PROGRAM TOOLS

folder

If the fixer is not in this folder then you will need to modify the Call Fixer.vi

Let me know if this works or you have anymore questions.
