VI Analyzer Tests Failing in CI

Solved!
Go to solution

Hi everyone,

 

Recently I've started using CI with a LabVIEW Project.

 

One of the steps is running a VI Analyzer Test Suite. Apparently, the tests pass in my machine (or two of my machines), but some of them fail when running on CI.

 

Does anyone have a clue what is going on?

 

I didn't know if I should post here or in the VI Analyzer Enthusiasts Group, but here I felt that it would be the best place.

 

I am using Gitlab CI and Docker with LabVIEW 20.0f1.

 

Here is an example of the failing tests.

For now, I consider these tests as low ranking, then they do not interfere with my pipeline. But it is a workaround and not a solution.

 

Thanks.

Fonts. 

 

You probably have different fonts on your build/test machine than your development machine.

 

Try setting the default font in the LV ini on both sides to the same font (and make sure that font is on both machines).

Here is how you can change on your dev machine using the dialog boxes. See what keys that adds to your ini file and then copy them over to your test/build machine. Again they both need to have the same font installed.

That is probably the right answer, but I couldn't confirm this yet.

 

It turns out that I used a base image from windows docker that had no fonts installed in it, which is probably causing this.

 

I my installations, I always use default font in both ini files, so it is not a configuration issue.

 

I found out that the base font for LabVIEW is listed here (Segoi UI) https://knowledge.ni.com/KnowledgeArticleDetails?id=kA00Z000000P8q6SAC&l

 

But after installing this font in the image, it didn't solve, then I tried to install all the fonts in my PC, and again, not a change.

 

I will keep digging.

Hi Sam,

 

Sorry for not answering before. The forums notifications are not the best in their job.

 

I tried to install fonts in the docker image, but it didn't work. The base image was one suggested by rdecarreau, and it was a windows server if I am not mistake.

 

The solution was changing the base image to Windows 1909, unfortunately it is double the size but it works with no problem.

 

Thanks.

 

Regards,

Felipe Pinheiro Silva
