Docking Palette/View of open files.

Status: New


Having a dockable palette/View of files that are open in labview.


Many developers would probably agree that having 30 VIs open creates lack of order in their desktop, and the way to swicth between them now is by clicking the taskbar icon and scrolling through till you find the one you want (in windows7 - grouped view at least, even worst without grouping with 30++ icons in your taskbar)  


This could be solved by having a viewer, either standalone or even as part of the project explorer. buttons to either see BD or FP before or after the name of the file would also be prefered as having two entires; one for BD and one for FP creates dual entires and is only adding to the mess.
