frontpanel tool

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

have you ever set the frontpanel properties of a sub-vi to "dialog", minimized it and started the main-vi ?

then you know what i mean :oops: you have to kill LV, or you use some other dirty tricks.

with this little tool i wrote, you can avoid this, because you "prepare" the frontpanel settings, but actually do not set them, until you want to release your project or compile it.

Installation:

extract the file "FrontPanelTool_en.zip" and copy the FrontPanelTool_en.llb to your %labview%/project folder.

the tool is used by selecting "Frontpanel Tool ..." from the "Tools" menu in LabVIEW. The frontmost VI is automatically selected, but you can select your own "main.vi"

The tool searches for a special comment in all VIs through the complete VI hierarchy and in every VI the "special comment" is found the frontpanel properties are set as specified in the comment.

try it with the "example" vi to see how it works

ah, by the way: the code is password protected ... ;)

please review and discuss,

best regards,

cb

That's kinda cool... good idea. I have had that problem before and use a slightly different workaround. Why did you password your code?
