Right clicking a FOR/While loop index would allow the user to select the array dimension. This could then be displayed on the VI as shown.
Great idea, this would save a lot of clicking.
This idea had to be implemented 15 yeas ago, but we are still waiting. LabVIEW has many such small handicaps with arrays obstructing efficient programming: another example is low fuctionality of array nodes for in-place-element structure.
Great idea, I dream about that every night !
I am almost positive I have seen this on the idea exchange before but alas I can't find it anywhere.
For completeness and showing the different kinds of possible implementations, I am linking to a page on LAVA discussing the issue: Array auto-indexing It is so far the oldest public writing about the suggested idea. (Thank you GregSands!) The picture is so beautiful, that I have to re-link it, too:
