I already download CXG utility. However, I don't have vhdl code for test. Could you give me the the example you use (DemoClipAdder.vhd)?
I want to follow your steps in this article "XML Generation Utility for LabVIEW FPGA CLIP Nodes".

The ClipAdder.vhd file is included in the examples installed for FlexRIO in LabVIEW.

Hi zyl7 -
It may be a bug in the UI code. We are keeping a bug list, but I can't give any promises on when (or even whether) the utility will be updated for minor issue fixes. This application has dual intent: to automate CLIP XML generation for most users' needs, and also to show how a developer or company might design such a tool for their custom purposes. You can treat it as a rubric for creating an automated XML generation utility of your own; my recommendation is to download the source and edit it to suit your needs appropriately.

I just download this and tried running the exe but always get this error after I add the port list and click on next:

Very useful utility Christian!!
Just a small suggestion to improve it. Now the CXG doesn't control if the VHDL data type is supported by LabVIEW. It could be a good improvement only display supported VHDL data type in the CXG "unassigned signals" list.

Hi Emmanuelol -
This discussion thread is reserved for discussing bugs and features of the CXG utility. For help using the CLIP feature of LVFPGA itself, I recommend creating a new thread in the LV FPGA forum.
