Darren's Favorite Shortcut Menu Plug-Ins.zip

The attached zip file contains all of my favorite shortcut menu plug-ins available for download on this community group. Note that my favorites are slightly different than AristosQueue's favorites. If your programming style and preferences are similar to mine, you may find it easier to install these plug-ins from my zip file instead of downloading them all individually. Here are the plug-ins contained in the attached zip file:

 

Change Mechanical Action from Diagram

Copy Delimited Data

Create Event

Create In All Frames

Create SubVI from Selected Wires

Expand Cluster Constant

Find Events

Find Wire Source

Grow to n

Multi-select Change Local Direction

Popout Breakpoint Menus

Popout Create Menus (probably the only truly contentious one in this list, feel free to remove the LLB if you don't like it)

Probe Compound Arithmetic Inputs

Set Current Event to Value Change

Show All Hidden Cluster Elements

 

Installation Instructions

1. Copy the contents of this zip file to your [LabVIEW Data]\PopupMenus\edit time panel and diagram folder. You may need to create this folder if this is the first time you're installing shortcut menu plug-ins.

2. Restart LabVIEW or run this VI to refresh your menus: LabVIEW 20xx\resource\plugins\PopupMenus\support\Refresh Menus.vi

Hi Darren, sounds like "Create Scalar Constant" is not included in your zip file!

Also, "Multi-select Change Local Direction" is missing in zip file.

hi, Darren. I find the original code is written in LV 2015. Can you upload an earlier version? I use LV 2012 in my Mac Pro.

Also, I didn't even find LabVIEW 20xx\resource\plugins\PopupMenus path in my computer. After some serach, I find a new path which seems to store the menus VIs: /Applications/National Instruments/LabVIEW 2012/resource/dialog/PreferencesDialog/PreferencePages/MenuShortcuts_SubVIs. Is that right?

The shortcut menu plug-in feature is only available in LabVIEW 2015 and later.
