Bundle Cluster: Remove Unused Inputs

Status: New

It would be nice to have a right-click option to remove all unused inputs.  It could even work on broken wires!.

Sorry, I couldn't get the image upload to work when I posted the idea.

I am not sure I like removing the inputs with broken wires. I do like the idea overall.

I'm pretty sure that should only remove the unconnected inputs only. Broken wires may be in use, waiting for some code fixing.

The Ctrl-Space-Ctrl-R Quick Drop keyboard shortcut to remove and rewire block diagram objects currently doesn't do anything with the [Shift] modifier.  What if Ctrl-Space-Ctrl-[Shift]-R removed unwired terminals on bundle, Concatenate Strings, Build Array, etc.?

I think that's a fine implementation Darren. I know I'd use it.

vt92: This functionality is available in LabVIEW 2012 and later. You can select the Bundle function, press Ctrl-Space, then press Ctrl-Shift-R. This will remove all the unwired inputs. Is this functionality sufficient for you such that I can close out the idea? Or would you still prefer a right-click menu option?

The Quick Drop method is good, but it is not a way that is easily discovered by the user.
