Shared Variable Binding Dialog Improvements

Status: New


when using the shared variable multiple variable editor to bind shared variables between the PC and cRIO its an annoying UI experience when doing more than a couple of bindings.


While the dialog can be resized, the new size is not remembered when binding the next variable, and its current size / layout is not useful for showing trees.


Also it doesn't remember your last position in the tree - so every time you wish to bind a variable you have to click to expand cRIO, click Chassis, scroll and click Module then scroll and find the variable by luck as you can only see the first few characters then click again.
