Along with this idea it would be useful if we could set a maximum string size for string indicators. We can programmatically do this now but looking at the string length every time new data is appended to the string indicator's value however it would be convenient if we could simply set a maximum string length and have LabVIEW limit the size for us. Conceptually this can be thought of as similar to a lossy queue. As new data is appended old data will be deleted. The string indicator would never get larger than the set maximum. This would be useful for log or status type indicators on applications that are running for very long periods.
