Meeting Topics

Unit Testing in LabVIEW

Presenter: Nate Mohering

This presentation will include a brief justification for unit test, writing testable code, and using OOP and JKI's VI Tester to achieve better test coverage.

 

 

LabVIEW Project Providers: a Powerful Framework or Bug Magnet?

Presenter: David Ladolcetta

The LabVIEW Project Provider Framework is a set of advanced APIs that allow you to control and modify the LabVIEW Project window. With it you can do things like add new items to the project window, modify existing items, add extra right-click menu options, add glyphs to the icons, add extra toolbars, etc.

Important Note:
The LabVIEW Project Provider framework is an unsupported feature of LabVIEW. The only documentation for it exists in its community group, and it is community supported only.

Re: Thursday, March 1st, 2018 is our next meeting. Call for presentations.

A little bird told me that someone requested hearing again about LabVIEW Project Provider Framework.  I presented this topic at CLA summit maybe 4-5 years ago and since almost nothing has changed on the subject, I'm willing to brush off my presentation again and give it a go.

 

Let me know if anyone is interested and I'll try to refresh myself in the details.

Before you changed your mind, I already changed the topic and description of this post Smiley Wink

 

Thank you so much, David!

 

Just let me know what you would like the description of your presentation to be... or you can try and edit the original post yourself.

 

Thanks,

Well, my original presentation was called "Customize the LabVIEW Project Explorer Using the Project Provider Framework" but past-David was pretty boring.  I could name it something more click-bait-y like "LabVIEW Project Providers: Powerful framework or bug magnet?" or possibly "You won't believe this LabVIEW API that NI doesn't want you to know about.  The results will SHOCK you!"

I guess you're far more indicated than I am for this but I also gave a presentation on project providers 3-4 years ago at an NI internal summit in Austin, let me know if you're in need of more examples or content Smiley Happy

 

I'll try to make it next week anyway (to show the click-bait works) !

Hey Eric,


Feel free to join in and bring up anything I miss or get wrong.  I'm not necessarily the leading expert on this, just the unfortunate soul who got tasked to write documentation on it long long time ago :-).  I'd be happy to have all the input from all the people I can get.

 

Thanks,

--David_L, CLA

HAHA! I can't believe my terrible click-bait title was actually used in the official invite.  Not sure if I'm proud or ashamed for my name to be associated with that :-).  Oh well, no turning back now, see you all next week!

If you didn't want that to be the title, you should not have suggested it Smiley Wink

 

See you soon!
