Top Three Things in LVOOP That Make You Less Productive ?

Well, I just learned today that if you first select the class and then change the project from 'items' view to 'files' view before you right-click and open the properties, then the dialog will appear in a few seconds!

Interesting! Just tested this and it does indeed work... BUT: The problem is that it can take more than 45s to switch to Files view in a big project! Still a nice tip if you need to edit properties of multiple classes since you only pay the switching penalty once.

I did some informal testing with a medium sized project (~200 classes).

Open class properties from items view with only one class visable (all others in collapsed virtual folders)

10 seconds

Switch to Files View:

<1 second

Open class properties from files view for same class:

1.6 seconds

Open class properties from items view with all classes visable (expand all on whole project)

17 seconds

Switch to Files View:

<1 second

Open class properties from files view for same class:

1.4 seconds

Not sure what is causing the slowdown in your project when switching views, but I am not seeing that effect.

Probably the thousands of VIs. And maybe the hundreds of classes and other libraries.
