"Show in palettes" displays incorrect palette

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am having an issue with functions palette I generate in VIPM. The palette is generated and behaves correctly in LabVIEW, however, when I click "show in palettes" in VIPM after installing toolkit, instead of my functions palette, Agilent 34401 palette is displayed.  Any idea what might be wrong?

A little more info I found when playing around: I located .mnu file responsible for my palette in LabVIEW directory and deleted it. Now, as expected, show in palettes does not work. Also, my palette disappeared from LabVIEW funtions palette. When I restore .mnu file, palette is available once more, however, show in palettes displays Agilent 34401 palette after clicking again.

Hi @Vollinger. The issue is that LabVIEW addresses items in the palette by their display name. So, if two items have the name "Connect.vi" then LabVIEW will show the first one it finds, even if it's for a different toolkit. The solution/work-around is to change the palette display name of your "Connect.vi" to something like "Connect (MyComponent)".

Here's where you would change that name in the palettes, via the palette editor.  Does that work for you?
