Launch LabVIEW Editor - Quick Drop shortcut

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I haven't found any way to launch IE from keybord and I decided to make my QD shortcut to do this.  I've used LabVIEW Icon API and build simple code as shown on snippet. Everything work fine when I want to change Icon of a VI holding the code, (ie. replace "QD Launch VI Ref" with reference to the VI) but the situation is different when I am using it as a QD shortcut.  I have to wait about 5-10 sec once Icon Editor is launched.  It's far to long.

 

Does anybody can tell me how I can do this process faster or give me another way I can run IE using keyboard?

Find the IE shortcut in the start menu. Right click on it and select properties. There is a field for you to define a shortcut key which is currently set to None..

I meant Icon Editor (IE). I've missed it in the topic.

Have you tried the Icon Editor that comes with GDS?

This VI gets loaded with LabVIEW and will open instantly.

(Tools->GOOP->Create VI Icon…)

 

If you have installed NI's GDS (http://sine.ni.com/nips/cds/view/p/lang/en/nid/209038)

You can find the IconEditor VI here:

LabVIEW 2013\resource\Framework\Providers\Symbio_GDS\EndevoProvider.llb\GDSIconEditor_CreateVIIcon.vi

 

Or if you download the OpenGDS (http://opengds.github.io/)

You can find the IconEditor here:

LabVIEW 20XX\resource\Framework\Providers\Open_GDS\ClassProviders\Common\IconEditor\GDSIconEditor_CreateVIIcon.vi
