[Zuehlke] Project explorer menu for DQMH

I have developed an extension for the Project explorer for the DQMH Toolkit. As a small thank you I would like to contribute something to this super toolkit.

 

Edit 2018_06_12:

  • Now supports >= LV2014
  • Added DQMH 4.0 functions
  • Bugfixed Project explorer crash

Edit 2018_06_16:

  • Speed optimized for Fab! ;-)

Have fun

Re: [Zuehlke] Project explorer menu for DQMH

Hi Claude,

 

Thanks for sharing this tool with the DQMH community. A lot of people have requested this functionality. You are a brave soul for working with project providers, as I mentioned in my presentation at the CLA Summit in Europe, they are Voodoo! Darren Nattinger also mentioned something similar in his presentation at NI Week 2018.

 

I reviewed the tool this weekend and I have some feedback for improvement, in case you were planning on continuing to work on it.

 

  • It would be nice for the welcome installer VI to mention DQMH Smiley Wink I know, people are getting the tool from this website, but what if someone gets it as a hand me down? 
  • The right-click menu options are missing the two new menus introduced with DQMH 4.0: Create RT Tester and  New DQMH Unit Test
  • This one, I don't think we will be able to solve, but it would be important for people to be aware of the danger: If I cancel out of Rename Module (or any of the DQMH tools) when initiated via the right-click menu on the project explorer, I can no longer work on the project, I had to kill LabVIEW
  • I noticed the tool is supported for 2017 or newer. As of now, DQMH supports 2014 or newer

I hope you find this feedback useful.

 

Thanks again for sharing and for calling DQMH a "super" toolkit. 

 

Regards,

Fab

Hi Fab

Thanks for your positive feedback. I will create a new version and extend the new functions for DQMH 4.0.
=> I will also make a try with LV2014.

 

By the way: Did you see the module names filled in automatically? ;-)

Re: [Zuehlke] Project explorer menu for DQMH

Hi Fab

 

Thanks for the review and the tips. I was able to find and fix the problems (it was a Traverse and OneButtonDialog problem).
Now the DQMH 4.0 functions are also supported if DQMH 4.0 is installed. Additionally the tool is now >= LV2014 compatible!

 

Update! ;-)

Re: [Zuehlke] Project explorer menu for DQMH

Hi Claude,

 

I did a quick test and it seems all the issues I mentioned were addressed.

 

Regarding the module names filling automatically, I didn't notice the first time because I am used to clicking really fast through all the dialogs. After you mentioned this, I waited a little bit and I did see the Module names changing.

 

Thanks for sharing this tool with the community. If I have any other feedback, I will let you know. 

 

Happy wiring,

Fab

Re: [Zuehlke] Project explorer menu for DQMH

Yes, you're right, the speed wasn't fully optimized yet. The latest version should now be fast enough for Fab! ;-)
Update!
