I would like the ability to probe the loop iteration terminal ("i" in For and While Loops) without the need to wire it to something (indicator, edge of structure,...).
The i terminal is the most common use case for this, but this will probably be useful on any unwired output.
The main problem I see with this is that it has some performance implications. Currently, if LabVIEW sees code which has all its outputs unused, it ignores it when compiling the VI. I would say that if this takes too much effort, special code should be written to support just the i terminal as early as possible.
Great suggestion !
the way I currently do this is to wire the i terminal to the bottom of the loop
EDIT: Sorry I just read your post more closely and this is what you already do
The biggest need for this is at run time, when you cannot wire.

totally agree. kudos
