Easier Reordering of Terminals

Status: New

This is a follow on to this idea. After terminals are wired to growable nodes. Make it easier to move and reorder the terminals. The switcharoo tool exists if there are only two terminals but it is difficult if there are more. 

I suggest making it easier with a keyboard/mouse combination or mouse long hold or something like that, to select a terminal. Then let the user drag it to another terminal and drop it. If that terminal is wired swap the selected wire and the one dropped over. If not wired, move the wire connection to the terminal dropped over.

It could work exactly like switching a terminal on the connector pane of a VI:

  • Click to 'select' terminal A,
  • press CTRL and click to select terminal B to switch the (optional) wires.. 

This would somewhat interfere with the normal switcheroo tool, but it would be better.


It sounds familiar (Use the wiring tool to swap inputs or outputs which have been wired incorrectly - NI Community).
