Show Module Timeout Value in SubVI Icon

Status: New

All DQMH modules come with a Module Timeout--constant.vi:

This value defaults to 5 seconds, but I've worked with many modules over the years (usually having to do with serial devices) where this value is modified. I find it tedious to have to dig into the timeout VI any time I want to find out what the timeout actually is. Especially when I'm working with multiple modules at the same time that may have different (legitimate) timeout values. So I propose the following:

 

1) The default modules that ship with DQMH should include the timeout value in their icons:

2) There should be a Validate test that ensures the Timeout VI icon displays the correct value, and provide a fixer that will update the icon if it does not.
