shoneill Posted August 19, 2013 Report Share Posted August 19, 2013 I'm okay with this for the same reason. But I would rather be consistent. Look at the sample I posted with the TDMS functions. That gets me every time that I need to be one pixel off whenever that palette is used. I would rather they were consistent with 5-3-3-5 (or what ever they picked). But I would say that 4-2-2-4 is my standard and very rarely deviate from it. But just as the style guide is a guide, I would say that a 4-2-2-4 setup should not be strictly enforced and if I were king of LabVIEW I wouldn't ban anyone if they used another. I ran into a crappy behaviour of 5-3-3-5 the other day. I thought I'd be smart (You just know how that's going to end up really) and wanted to connect up two VIs with the same conpane pattern (5-3-3-5) but have them vertically staggered so that the top two connectors of one VI lined up with the bottom two of the next one. Lo and behold, even LabVIEW can't make 32 divided by 5 equal an integer and there was an extremely annoying 1-pixel bend. This may be also the background to some of NI's own 1-pixel benders. 1 Quote Link to comment
