  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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!

    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?


    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!)
