On behalf of the G Idea Exchange and GCentral, thanks for considering posting an idea for discussion. Here are a few guidelines to think about before posting the idea.
Does the idea already exist in the community or on VIPM?
The effort of creating two competing ideas is usually not worth the time but is better spent to improve the existing idea with the functionality. If your idea differs significantly from the existing solution then write that in the idea post.
Is the Idea a request for a new LabVIEW primitive?
If the idea requires new LabVIEW primitives, the idea belongs on the LabVIEW idea exchange instead of here.
Will your idea improve the productivity of everyone in the community?
It is important that other developers can see that the idea is something that they would vote for. Sometimes an idea is specific to a particular problem in your current project, which would be great if there was a solution, but it is hard to see the reusability of the idea.
Would you be willing to release the result of your idea under a permissive open-source software license?
In order for your idea to be used by others it would have to be released under a permissive open-source license, defining the rights of usage. The G Idea exchange can only support and possibly fund ideas that will be released as open-source.
Discussions about an idea.
When you post an idea on this board it is open to discussion, and improvement by the community, and other developers can join in and ask questions about the idea. Consider these questions as sources for expansion and improvement of the idea rather than critique. When commenting on or discussing an idea please keep a respectful tone.
