Allow creation of a new DQMH module in a folder that only contains a project

Status: Released

Small change, big impact. Accepted.

I sometimes need to implement a DQMH module in isolation. So the first thing I do is create a new blank project and save it (this will be the dev project for the new module). Then I try to create a new DQMH module in the same folder as that project (by editing the 'Module Save Path' to point to the folder containing the new blank project):

When I try to click OK, I get a dialog that says I can't create the module because the specified folder contains LabVIEW files:

Yeah, I know the folder contains a LabVIEW file... it's the blank project. The Add Module dialog wants me to create a new subfolder for the new module, but I don't want that... I want the module and all its files to live in the same folder as the isolated development .lvproj. I propose that this file check be changed to remove ".lvproj" files from the list of LabVIEW file types that it checks for.

Oh, and the workaround is silly... while the dialog is up, I can delete the .lvproj file from disk, then click OK, and the new module will be created, and the .lvproj will be re-created as well, since saving the .lvproj is part of the new module creation process. 😛
