IMAQ VI's should support all image types which makes sense

Inconsistency is found in the supported image types for many IMAQ vi's:


For instance IMAQ ROIProfile, IMAQ LineProfile and IMAQ LinearAverages supports U8, I16 and SGL format but do not support U16 format images.


But, a profile along a line drawn in a U16 image should make as much sense as in an U8 image. Shouldn't it? So why is it not supported?


In addition, I would expect it to be easy to add an additional polymorphic U16 version.


These are just a few of several examples of similar inconsistency in IMAQ vi's.

Support for u16...yes...

While we're at it, the IMAQ VIs are terribly inconsistent in their wiring patterns - what happened to 4224 everywhere?

I am not getting what exactly you mean by 4224..

The most commonly used connector panel for the subVI icon and the one recommended by the style guide.

Connector pane wiring. Common lingo includes: 4224, 5335, 4-2-2-4, 5-3-3-5, etc...
