  2. The problem is with loading the LV2015 run-time supplied with vipm-17.0.2018-linux, which I tried to install on LV2019 Full for RedHat Enterprise Linux 8. There are verification errors, easily dealt with running "sudo rpm -i --nodigest labview-2015-rte-15.0.1-11.x86_64.rpm", and Most of the the other items (eg. nicurli) which refuse to install because the version 2019 .so libraries are newer can have appropriate soft links added. However, there is a basic architectural problem with nisvcloc. Trying an install ( as the script would, except it needs "--nodigest" ) as: rpm -i --nodigest nisvcloc- Yields an error as: "error: Failed dependencies: nisvcloc < 18.1.0 is obsoleted by (installed) ni-service-locator-" WIth "rpm -ql nisvcloc-15.0.0-1.noarch.rpm" , the files are: /usr/local/natinst/nisvcloc /usr/local/natinst/nisvcloc/bin /usr/local/natinst/nisvcloc/bin/nisvcloc /usr/local/natinst/nisvcloc/bin/nisvcloc32 /usr/local/natinst/nisvcloc/bin/nisvcloc64 /usr/local/natinst/nisvcloc/etc /usr/local/natinst/nisvcloc/init.d /usr/local/natinst/nisvcloc/init.d/nisvcloc Since the new ni-service-locator is a daemon under systemd, a simple soft link or manually adding the directories/files are not options. The daemon executable is /usr/sbin/nisvcloc. There isn't any directory structure as shown above for the nisvcloc rpm file at all. IS there a workaround to install VIPM 2017 on RHEL 8 ? Or do I need to wait for a new release to support LabVIEW 2019 Full for Linux ? Thanks to all for your time in reading my post.
  3. Last week
  4. Note hover can be disabled programmatically, by writing to the last two elements of the "Colors[4]" property (note that if a button has hover colors, there will be actually 6 elements of this array) 1 - FALSE 2 - TRUE 3 - Mouse Down when FALSE 4 - Mouse Down when TRUE 5 - Hovering when FALSE 6 - Hovering when TRUE
  5. Thanks for posting this. We've also experience this issue and I think the solution is to just disable hover on your buttons
  6. Fantastic! Happy to hear that the issue has been fixed. Hope it works well for you.
  7. So far it looks like issue is not existing anymore. Thanks
  8. Yes, I meant Quick Drop, but couldn't remember its proper name. I'm using the latest version of JKI Design Palette. However, the problem disappeared. It seems that it disappeared after I first tried Ctrl+Alt+Space to pop up the Design Palette. After that Ctrl+Space correctly opens Quick Drop window.
  9. You can probably imagine that Jim and Eric don't like restarting LabVIEW all the time
  10. An easy way to do a super simple resizeable UI, I think, is to use splitter bars and then choose one pane that has some kind of big UI element that is easy to resize like a graph that you can just set as "size to pane". Then set the sticking of the splitter bars so that one pane is the only one that changes size on panel resize events and all others stay the same. Then you don't have to worry about scaling all the little buttons and dealing with decorations getting pixelated. But for a tab control, yeah there is no easy way sadly (at least that I know of). For this, I usually just use radio buttons as the tabs and then a subpanel and switch out which VI is displayed in the subpanel based on the radio buttons.
  11. I am having difficulty creating a UI that scales well for monitors of different resolutions. For programs that have numerous indicators and controls the scaling issue can be especially challenging. The solution provided by NI to this issues as I have read it is to use splitter bars https://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/Different-Screen-Resolutions-What-is-the-best-method/td-p/1749514 By using splitter bars you can get front panel objects to 'scale' within their pane by first grouping the controls/indicators and then right clicking the group and selecting 'scale object with pane' (although the controls often look distorted when scaling). However, this solution is only viable if you have a limited number of front panel items. When I have too many objects to be displayed on a single window I use tab controls to organize my front panel items. However, you can not use splitter bars within a tab control to so the objects placed on the tab control pages won't scale. https://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW-Idea-Exchange/Tab-Controls-with-Splitter-Bars/idi-p/990693 Are there any other viable solutions that people are using to solve this issue? Does it require sub panels? Are there any best practices?
  12. Hi @DavidH. I'll take a look at our system and send you a private email to let you know what I find. We'll make sure you get up and running.
  13. Hi @KarelM. Thanks for reporting this. I haven't seen this ever happen before. The JKI Design Palette should only pop up when Ctrl+Shift+Space or Ctrl+Alt+Space are pressed. Also, when you say "LabVIEW search function (CTRL+SPACE)" I think you're talking about the Quick Drop window. That's odd that both the JKI Design Palette and Quick Drop show up. Which version of JKI Design Palette are you using? is the latest.
  14. That's really cool @ammouri! Thanks for sharing a picture of your custom buttons theme! Right now, the refreshing of the design palette isn't as great as it could be. You've got two options: 1) Restart LabVIEW, which will cause the Design Palette to reload all the controls. 2) Press Ctrl+R from within the Design Palette window to Refresh (re-initialize) the design palette -- note that this is not an official feature, but more of a developer-level feature that will most likely change in the future 🙂 Looking forward to seeing more of the controls you come up with!
  15. When I request an online activation code through my corporate email address, I never receive the email containing the code (it never arrives in my spam folder either, I have tried on two occasions on separated days). If I use my personal email address to get a code, I received the activation email right away, but the activation fails.
  16. Thanks Jim I checked the link out and it worked. Here is how my library looks so far. Is there some kind of a command that I can type to refresh the existing controls after I drag new controls to my custom controls folder? I guess the app loads the directories when it loads with LabVIEW and i have to restart LabVIEW whenever i add a new control.
  17. A mouse over hover effect has become standard in most major software UIs. This effect allows users to interact with controls in a more intuitive way and gives users confidence that they are making the selection that they intend. However there is a long standing NI bug that renders the hover effect inconsistent (see the discussion here: https://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/Button-Boolean-mouse-hover-not-working-on-64-Bit-LabVIEW/m-p/3944252#M1121887) Until NI makes a fix one 'solution' that I will employ is to disable the hover effect with the controls that I am using so that users do not get confused by a control stuck in a hover state.
  18. I'm trying to install the Digilent Linx package on labview 2018 64-bit (18.0.1f4) on a windows 10 machine Main Package Name: Digilent LINX (Control Arduino, Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone and more) v3.0.1.192 Package Name with Error: Digilent LINX (Control Arduino, Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone and more) v3.0.1.192 Error Message: VIPM could not install the package lvh_linx- . Error Code: 1003 Error Source: Invoke Node in D5566ECD6962606ED717A0810948FA29->0AF9339C77424DFA92DA38FDE74DE74C->4E1CC4C6560AE3803601B09E181DEFA6->OGPM Class.lvlib:89AC7BADF759B8183E200C1F7AFA7855->OGPM Class.lvlib:3617A98EB64CF6012064A2A881466B07->579BE417495B7ADCD1FF111EE165D832->VIPM Main Window.vi <APPEND> Method Name: Run VI VI Path: C:\Users\robert\AppData\Local\Temp\PostInstall.vi =============== I can't find anything about error 1003 online. Can anyone give me some advice?
  19. Whenever I try to use LabVIEW search function (CTRL+SPACE), search window appears, then JKI Design Palette pops up and both disappear immediately. This happens both on front panel and on block diagram and regardless on JKI Design Palette being open or closed. I'm using LabVIEW 2016 32-bit.
  20. Hi Greg, This is all really great feedback! Thank you and keep it coming 🙂 I really like the ideas of filtering the controls types based on what's filtered in the search results, prioritizing control types that are named in a search term, and giving a set of additional tags/terms relevant to the current search that can be quickly clicked on to keep drilling down. We'll review those suggestions with our team, to see how we can fit them into our development roadmap. Regarding the showing of the names of the controls in the palette, here's what we've got and are working on (below). 1) You can press Ctrl+L to show/hide labels on the controls in the palette. This works right now. 2) We're working on adding TipStrips to the mouse when you hover over the items in the palette. This didn't make it into the 1.0.1 release, but it'll be in the next one. Thanks again! Jim
  21. Show Labels of All Controls in the JKI SDP (Ctrl+L) You can show or hide the labels of all the controls in the JKI SDP by pressing Ctrl+L. Press Ctrl+L to show labels on all the controls: Press Ctrl+L again to hide the labels
  22. The design palette seems to work well for Boolean buttons, but is more difficult to use for other controls. For example, if I type "graph" I get firstly various buttons, then a number of graphs, but there's no way to tell what type of graph: waveform, XY, Intensity - even a chart gets shown here (because the filename on disk includes the word "Graph"). Suggested enhancements: text showing the name of the control currently selected (or under the pointer) in the same way as the LV Control menus the list of control types filtered to show only those which are part of the current search (same as the sizes are only those relevant) where the search text is a standard control type, then those are shown first before buttons that also match the text - and/or ability to sort by type rather than theme a list of other words relevant to the current search that can quickly be clicked on to limit the options shown, either sorted alphabetically or by frequency of use
  23. That's great to hear it's working well for you now! Thanks for the kind words. Yes, you can add your own controls to the palette. See here for all the details (and have fun!)
  24. This isn't a problem that's specific to any kind of SMO or any computer. If I have an application that uses an SMO and I put a breakpoint in the Process VI, then the application finishes as normal, the development environment slows to a crawl. Closing and re-opening the project is enough to get the dev environment back to normal, but I'm wondering if anyone else using SMOs has seen this before? Any tips on how to avoid this from happening?
  25. Hi Jim It seems that all the issues that I was facing were resolved in the new release. Well done. An irrelevant question: would it be possible to add my own controls to the palette in a future revision? Ali
