c'mon, do the math it is both fun and good for you.  :smileytongue:

 

(I always thought you should be able to double-click and enter the number of terminals in a small dialog, a la Array to Cluster)


But many people want that changed. As seen here.

[ Edited ]

My analogy to that function should go no further than the appearance of that dialog with a single numeric input. Purely an edit time shortcut and unlike array to cluster there is no ensuing obfuscation. Mentioning it in this thread to cut out the middleman since it would be a future orphan. Maybe it has a ghost of a chance, but I doubt it would get the 2112 Kudos needed, so I guess I'll just relax and get busy with the facts.

"Right-click >>> Find Events"

 

I'd like to be able to pop-up on any control and find all of the event structures with events registered for that control. When done at run time it will also find dynamic events.

 

If someone knows how to do this great! please share with me.

Does somebody want to post Ben's idea on the Exchange? I don't have time right now. :smileysad:

Re: Idea Exchange: Post your lonely orphans

This is not my idea, but I think it deserves significantly more attention. Eight Kudos in five months is way (way!!!) too low! :smileysad:

 

 

 

 

(See also my comment elsewhere).

 

A simple change like allows the programmer to have better control over inplaceness and elliminates complex input checking. Any advanced UI needs arrays on the front panel to simplify the layout and streamline the code underneath. It will be even more important if we ever get this idea implemented. :smileyvery-happy:

 

This forum is full of code examples where users fail to harness the power of array controls or indicators.

So true. I often use clusters where arrays would have been so much more efficient. I've even converted arrays to clusters, and back again, so that they'll look like I want. :smileysurprised:

Add block diagram design for typdefs

 


Now is the right time to use %^<%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S%3uZ>T
If you don't hate time zones, you're not a real programmer.
