Retired LabVIEW features?

I miss being forced to be extremely careful and thoughtful before making any changes to my code. Undo makes it so that I don't need to really think about what I'm doing anymore. Also the fact that I can move a node around without unhooking all the wires first means that I don't have to do as much prior planning. Integration with source control just makes things so much worse.

And remember when LabVIEW was so easy a marketing person could do it.

I am curious about the usefulness of more than 63 dimensions. Even if the size of each dimension is only 2, you will break all size limits. This means that at least about half of the dimensions need to be 1. So what's the point?


Oh I don't need them, I was just curious as to how high I could go, (and how thick the lines got)

Sounds messy.

Looks pretty useful.

The ability to put a VI in the True case of a case structure with boolean Flase to include a VI in memory and simplify loading it at run time.

That would have solved the orignal question I posted when I first signed up to these forums.

I fully agree with you Ben and I can't understand why NI stopped to support this very useful tool. The Statechart Module isn't a replacement.

For your information, I'm still using this unsupported tool with LV 2011 SP1. But with every new version of LV I fear it will no longer be compatible.

Well this one is more of a DaqMX thing then LabVIEW. I miss being able to create Global Virtual channels and just import them and they work. Now if I do not have a card installed I have to create a simulated card or if I unplug the daq card and plug it in somewhere else I have to delete the old device and retarget. They should make these run off of the serial number not when you plugged them in.

I started a new thread in the LV forum found here to see if we can get NI to start supporting the SDE again.

 

Please reply to that thread to add your support for the SDE.

 

Thank you!

Out of curiosity - does using a static VI reference not accomplish the same result?

(sorry - should have added some context - that was in reference to using a VI inside the "true" case of a case structure)

You can also just replace the boolean constant with a boolean control -  the VIs will then still be included.
