  1. We implemented offline activation in version 1.0.1. Please give it a try and let us know how that works for you.
  2. Thanks, Christian! That's very helpful. The issue is that we had the font for that set to Dialog Font and everything else is using Application Font. Hopefully, it'll be fixed/better in the next release. I appreciate you helping us make the Design Palette better and hope it works well for you. I look forward to any other feedback you have, as you take it for a spin on your projects.
  3. That's to protect privacy... But seriously, thanks for letting us know. Font sizings can get a little wonky in LabVIEW. We'll see if we can fix this.
  4. That would be great! Looking forward to seeing what you're been working on.
  5. You're welcome, Nathan. Glad to hear that it worked! Thanks for posting all these questions and feedback as you're making progress and putting the Flat UI Controls and Design Palette through the paces. Your UI must really be coming along, and would love to see some examples of what you come up with, if you're able to share.
  6. Ah, I got it... See if this works -- I just tried it on my computer and I think it does... 1) Open your type definition in the control editor (right click on it and choose Open Type Def.) 2) In the control editor, select the enum... 3) Follow steps #1-4 in my previous post. 4) Save+close the type definition Does that do it?
  7. Hi Nathan. We implemented Ctrl+P to replace in the 1.0.1 release of JKI Design Palette. 1) Select the enum you want to replace. 2) Press Ctrl-Shift-Space to activate the JKI Design Palette 3) Type "enum" and then select the enum in JKI Flat UI Controls 2.0 (mouse or tab key) 4) Press Ctrl+P to replace the selected enum on your VI FP with the JKI Flat UI Controls 2.0 enum you just selected in the Design Palette. voilà!
  8. Hey Nathan, Here's a new version of that control that should fix the issue. Path--File-Browse-Folder-Location-Simple.ctl Replace the file, here, and you'll be all set: <LabVIEW>\resource\JKI\Design Palette\Themes\JKI Flat UI 2.0\Path--File-Browse-Folder-Location-Simple.ctl We'll have this fixed in the next official release of the JKI Flat UI Controls 2.0. Thanks again for your attention to these little details.
  9. You're welcome and thanks for the add'l explanation about your applications and design approaches. I've been chatting a lot with @Eric Welden about all the great feedback we've been getting lately and one take-away for me has been that there are almost always some exceptions and creating a nice looking UI will most certainly involve a lot of customizations to a basic theme. So, the Flat UI Controls 2.0 will get you much of the way there (since it's a great baseline). *And*, to create a mind-blowing UI, you'll definitely want to have a designer tweak stuff and create some customized elements 🙂
  10. @nathan-murphy I split this into it's own topic, to keep it separate from the "+" icon question/topic.
  11. Good catch on the Mouse Up issue! We'll take a look at it and see if we can get it fixed (to be consistent with the standard behavior of the existing LV Path Controls)
  12. That's a great observation, Nathan! Yes, there are two primary layout use cases for the buttons: Laid Out Horizontally and Stacked Up Vertically. When laid out horizontally, having the icons and text balanced in the center of each button looks really nice. Sometimes the distances/padding are event tweaked by hand to be more visually balanced than geometrically balanced (e.g. to off-site for any "optical illusions"). However, when stacked up vertically (as you've described), it does look better to have the icons line up with each other and all the text all line up with each other (respectively), just as the Design Palette drop-down menu does (which you also highlighted). I'll make a note of your feedback. I agree it would be nice if there were a set for vertical alignment, as well as horizontal CC: @Eric Welden
  13. Thanks for the good question, Nathan. I'll pass this feedback/question along to the design team. Certainly, it might be nice to have both. CC: @Eric Welden
  14. Hi Yes, if you had to use the off-line activation, then the feedback submission probably won't work, either. In that case, thanks for using the forums, or you can user our jki.net/contact form. -Jim
  15. 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
  16. Thanks for posting this. We've also experience this issue and I think the solution is to just disable hover on your buttons
  17. Fantastic! Happy to hear that the issue has been fixed. Hope it works well for you.
  18. You can probably imagine that Jim and Eric don't like restarting LabVIEW all the time
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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!
  22. 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
  23. 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
