8.6.1f1 xcontrol property bug

I believe I have found a bug with XControl properties.  It is illustrated in the attached image.


Selecting the Style property results ina Style ID property node on the block diagram.  I also renamed the property to Color Style, and got the same behavior.  I have not noticed any issues with the other custom properties.

I deleted the property and remade it (again as Color Style) and it works fine.  Not sure why I was getting that behavior...

I have the same problem now with an XControl written in LV2015SP1 ;-(

There are a set of specific names for property nodes which should NOT be used for custom properties in XControls (like "Label").  I also ran into the exact same problem before where I named a Property and then when trying to access it, got a completely different property (and datatype) back.  It seems there can be some serious name collision issues with XControl properties which are not documented anywhere.


I requested this to be either changed or at least documented before.
