Do you have an idea for LabVIEW NXG?
Use the in-product feedback feature to tell us what we’re doing well and what we can improve. NI R&D monitors feedback submissions and evaluates them for upcoming LabVIEW NXG releases. Tell us what you think!
"Which I think should NOT be the default behavior: It "fixes" potentially incorrect code by throwing even more potentially incorrect code at it. I can't remember a single instance where I wanted that behavior."
While I wish this option would disappear completely, I think at least it should be off by default.
There are plenty of examples (e.g. here or here) where an auto feedback node insertion covered up a serious dataflow issue by making the VI no longer broken. This is a disservice to the new programmer who might not even understand what a feedback node really does.
A feedback node needs to be intentionally placed in all cases.
Within LabVIEW Build Specs you can specify a version for an executable that is built. You can presently see this from within the Windows add/remove program and there are some funky ways of getting this version with .net or WinAPI calls but you should be able to do this from LabVIEW similar to the app version as shown below.
This should also be within LabVIEW so that it can work from LabVIEW Real-Time as well.
The useful feature of having an arrow connect a free label to the part of the code it refers to was added in LV 2013. However, there are cases where a label refers to multiple objects, so you would want to point an arrow to each of those objects. Currently this is unavailable. I suggest that this feature gets implemented in following LV releases. It makes block diagram documentation just that bit better.
Currently, if you want to enter in multiple elements in an array, you have to click on the empty element before typing. It would be more effecient to be able to press tab to enter another element in that array.
The title says it all - I'd like to have the option to inherit my configuration settings from the previous LabVIEW installation (or from a specified path). Currently I have to do this manually by copying the ini file from the previous version, but I'm never sure whether there will be compatibility issues with the new version of LabVIEW or if there are obsolete settings. The installer should check for compatibility/obsolescence issues as it creates the new ini file.
Alternatively / additionally, I'd like to be able to specify where LabVIEW loads the LabVIEW.ini file from (which could be located on a network or USB disk).
LV2010 introduced a new possibility of accessing class private data via property nodes. However, I suggest to reduce the size of the property node when the Name Format is set to Short Names (default). The suffix .lvclass is not necessary.
I suggest having a feature that would allow us to add "virtual" error terminals to any VI by right-clicking any VI and selecting "Add Virtual Error Terminals...". These virtual terminals would do nothing more than act as pass-through tunnels to facilitate data flow. This would allow us to minimize the use of sequence structures:
It will be very convenient to have the ability to change the amount increment in a for loop. Currently, the i in for loop start at 0 and increment by 1 for each iteration. It will be great if we can change the start point of i and the amount increment, similiar to what we can do in c.
I am quite often encountering the issue, when I remove an item from project, however, that item still remains on disc. This can cause various issues. Files can be of course deleted manually or when switching to Files view in project explorer, but I seem to always forget that. It would be nice to have another option in project explorer, which would also remove the file on disc (after dialog with confirmation, so that we dont delete files accidentally)
I find it a real pain to add simple formatting to text in labels and decorations (free labels / floating text). I really wish that Ctrl+B (Bold), Ctrl+U (Underline), and Ctrl+I (Italics) would do thier expected magic.
In LabVIEW if I want to use a property/method of a control I have to right click and select property. Same for second control I want to use same property I have to do same operation again. My idea is if we select all the controls and right click, some common property like value, visible and etc..... Should display and by selection it generate automatically. This can reduce my application development time.
So if this key feature is there in LabVIEW we can select multiple controls or properties and perform some basic operations to reduce our application development timing.

If you wanted to use a lot of functions from the same palette, you have to either keep going back through the context sensitive Replace/Create menu or manually search back over to the palette through the Functions palette to get to the functions you need.
Wouldn't it be nicer if we could pin that palette down directly from the context menu?
If this has already been implemented in LabVIEW 2012, give this idea a miss!
I inherited lots of VIs with complicated terminal connectors. It is a challenge to determine which terminal is associated with a given control.
Why not highlight the associated terminal when a front panel control has been selected?
In other words, currently when I select a terminal, the corresponding control is highlighted. I'm proposing that it should also work the other way -- when I select a control, the corresponding terminal gets highlighted.
I have just figured out a workaround, but it's clumsy. I can temporarily delete the control, observe which terminal goes white, and then immediately restore it with Control Z. But my proposed solution would be cleaner.
