Did you mean: 

Calling "Create New DQMH Event" should always determine its project root

To demonstrate and explain my point, do the following:

  1. Have two projects open - one dqmh.lvproj the other not_a_dqmh.lvproj. (DQMH and not DQMH projects)
  2. Open some_dqmh.vi from dqmh.lvproj
  3. Select not_a_dqmh.lvproj as foreground.
  4. Select the vi some_dqmh.vi from dqmh.lvproj
  5. From some_dqmh.vi's toolbar, call Tools->Delacor->DQMH->Create New DQMH Event. This give an error dialog that there were no valid DQMH modules found.

If you at step 3 above, select dqmh.lvproj as foreground before steps 4 and 5 it works and you can create the event to the dqmh.lvproj.

My suggestion/question:

If you in a vi owned by a DQMH project (such as some_dqmh.vi above) select it's toolbar: "Tools->Delacor->DQMH->Create New DQMH Event"

no matter which project was active beforehand, then the tool should be able to deduce that the taget project is dqmh.lvproj.

Couldn't it and should'nt it?

Heel,

We will look into this. As you already discovered, the DQMH productivity tools use the currently active project to determine where the event is going to get created in, regardless of where the menu was activated.

In the mean time, the workaround is to launch the Tools>>Delacor>>DQMH>>Create New DQMH Event from the project window menu and not from the VI.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

Regards,

Fab

Hi Heel,

Fix to this issue will be included in DQMH 3.0. If you would like to use DQMH 3.0 as a Beta tester, sign up to our DQMH newsletter (if you haven't done already). We will be sending the link for the beta software in the next couple of days.

Thanks,

Fab
