This message thread if for discussing ideas about how to improve LabVIEW.

 

You have an ordinary LabVIEW question that belongs as a new thread in the LabVIEW forum.

This idea is fundamentally different from "Transpose 2D Array" in graphs/charts.

 

  • With graphs/charts, the "transpose" option...
    • ...is equivalent to inserting a "Transpose 2D Array" primitive into the wire between the array source and the sink.
    • ...deletes existing data when toggled.
    • ...acts on all data received in the future.
  • With this idea, the "transpose" option...
    • ...is equivalent to editing the array constant/control/indicator by hand.
    • ...modifies existing data when toggled.
    • ...acts on current data only, not data received in the future.

 

So, this idea is valid and safe for array indicators, and it does not require a visual cue to say that the data has been modified.

I like this idea. But I don't think the Transpose Array option should change the cosmetic appearance of the array (by resizing it and changing scrollbar visibility, as shown in the screenshot). Trying to get this right without affecting surrounding diagram code seems tough. Would y'all be ok if the Transpose Array option only manipulated the data, and not the cosmetic appearance of the array?

Darren, I would be fine with only the data changing.  I can manually rearrange my diagram from there if needed.

@ Darren: when this idea clicked in my mind I was very excited to post it here on the forum and that's the reason for showing the cosmetics is also getting modified. Well cosmetic changes are not required and only data manipulation is expected.
