It is good if controls are disabled on front panel which are inside diagram disable structure as shown image and these controls should be distinguishable from disable and grayed control. This will help programmer.
I'm not sure about that. Sometimes we comment part of the code just to check something. Even though the terminal of a control is commented, there are other kind of references in BD to it, like Property Nodes, Local Variables and Event Structures. I think it should only possible when no reference to a object is active in the BD. If implemented, should be an option.
This option will help programmers to differentiate controls on front panel.
Manzolli has a good point. More often I find that when use Diagram Disable I still want some kind of data output to the rest of the program. using the control, possibly in a different way than its original design, is often handy.
It takes an extra few steps, but you could just drop a decoration over the controls.
From feedback of Manzolli and Johnsold. I want add and change my idea little bit. Here instead of disabling Controls on front panel, only look of the controls and indicators to be changed so that programmer can differentiate them without putting decoration on the front panel. I think this idea will be better.
Could I suggest we have an option to 'hide' controls in an diagram disable case. Something like right click on the diagram and select 'Hide all FP items except Enabled Case'.
Recently I had to do a lot of right-clicking when I disabled some code - and then even more right-clicking when I decided my first approach was the better option;-)
Figured I'd post it here due to similarity rather than as a new post!
