Give Case Structure a second selection ring at bottom

I would like to see a second case selector on the bottom of the frame in case and event structures.  When frames become larger than the screen, it would be nice to have another selector to eliminate excessive scrolling.

 

Also it could be optional for when frames are small.  Add the option to 'enable second selector' when right-clicking on the frame.

I don't think many experienced LabVIEW programmers are going to agree with this. I'm sorry, but if your frame is larger than your screen size then you need to change your programming habits.

 

If the frame contains that much code, you should be using a state machine, or placing some of the functionality of that case into a sub-vi...

I don't mean to quibble, but the item you're referring to is the Selector Label.  The Case Selector is the tunnel with the question mark.

One issue I see with this is that if the case structure is as large as you indicate, and all you see is the selector label and only part of the horizontal border, then how do you know that you're looking at the bottom of a case structure as opposed to the top of a different case structure?

I agree with JackDunaway.  Fit code to one screen!
