Allow changing numeric conversion type with selector tool

Status: New
by Member EthanStern on ‎11-15-2012 07:49 PM

Browsing through menus to replace a numeric conversion node is tedious.  How about allowing the selector tool to select from a pull-down menu, just like it does from an unbundle by name node?


Existing unbundle node behavior is shown at left.  Desired numeric conversion node behavior is to the right.

Yes, thanks.  It appears this idea already has some momentum.  My post is redundant with regard to yours: http://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW-Idea-Exchange/A-universal-conversion-bullet/idi-p/918414

 (...and I like your post name better)

Leave this idea here. Altenbach's idea has over 100 kudos but it's over 3 years old. Might have lost some momentum. This is  something I've wanted for a long time, BTW.

... and make the conversion behavior consistent, BTW.


I mean it's illogical to keep the output typedef'd if the base type of an typedef's input is the same as the selected conversion function...

It's so obvious that I kudoed both altenbach's and this one.

Jim_Glanz, then what's stopping you from giving the idea a Kudos?  A comment saying "good idea" will not give NI any idea of how desirable the idea is.  That what the Kudos are for.  So if you like the idea, give it a Kudos.

Maybe in 2014.  This is a neat idea.

Nope. If it were, it would be marked "In Development" or "In Beta" by now.
