Rename elements in wire

I have made a printout VI to show variable names and values. But values will not get proper names until it reach destination. One solution I am using is typecasting (see alternative 2). But typecasting is dangerous. If data in is not of same type as data out, it might be converted to rubbish without warning.


Dear LabVIEW team, could you please give us a function to convert data names in wires? 


Debugging would also be easier if content of wires had proper names.

This idea would fix your issue: Array To Cluster Function, add Type to Convert Cluster
