Dupicate frame for Flat sequence

Status: Declined

Similar to Duplicate frame in stacked sequence structure please add one for Flat sequence as well to duplicate the frame.

Please try to sell your idea a bit more to why you think this is necessary.

 

I really doubt you'll get much traction with your idea as in general, the use of sequence structures is generally discouraged.

I don't uderstand why you think that duplicating code is a good idea in general. In fact it is a very bad idea!

 

If the same code needs to execute twice in a row, it simply belongs inside a FOR loop. Use shift registers to update the values between iterations.

I would have no problem if the workaround I describe there is automated, just so there is symmetry in the LV universe.  I do not really see any need to try to refine the results.

I had to show case a demo with various passible inputs for a VI and its result. I put the first combination of inputs in the first frame. then I felt i need the same code in all four frames with different inputs. if it was a stacked sequence I had the option to duplicate the case since it was flat i had to copy paste the code 4 times after adding a new frame everytime.

I still don't understand why there has to be a sequence at all. Why does the order of calcuation matter in this case? Just create one possibility, then select and ctrl-drag it three times to create the duplicate code. No frames needed.

 

In any case, if you really insist, you can make it as a stacked sequence first, then convert it to a flat sequence by right-clicking. 😉
