Allow Replace or Create option on Easy Write XML File

Recommended Posts

A "Feature" of Easy Write XML File is that it errors out if the file already exists (i.e. if you need to overwrite a file). I urge you to add an optional Operation input to allow such an Overwrite to take place. True, the user could add code to (1) test if the file exists, (2) delete it if true, and (3) then do the Easy Write, but why require additional code, particularly if "inside" the protected VI you are doing an ordinary LabVIEW Open/Create/Replace file, and only need to change the operation from "Create" (the default) to "Replace or Create" (or to "Replace or Create with Confirmation"). If you did incorporate this change, it would be perfectly legitimate to raise an error for some other Operation input, of course.

Bob,

 

Thanks for your feedback. We do have Case 8208 listed for consideration to be implemented in future revision of the EasyXML toolkit.
