Darren's Occasional Nugget 08/11/2008

Thanx for posting the screen shot of your block diagram darren.

> Off to the left of the diagram (not shown) is the private functionality I
was talking about.  Basically, I have to get all the Application
Instances where you might have VIs running...unfortunately, I don't think
there's a way to do this without private VI Server properties.

But if you are working one a project, there will only be VI's running in
your current application instances. So simply getting all VI's in memory
will do in most cases. At least it has been working for me. (I do a lot of
scripting, but never found the need to change my stop all VI).

Also, I simply stop all top level vi's. Guess it's a 'poor mans' solution.
(If I'd make my stop all VI more flexible, I'll never learn not to make VI's
modal untill testing is done.)

Another great use for VI's like this is to stop dynamic VI's started with VI
server.

Regards,

Wiebe.

Darren,

 

could you add the LabVIEW Dialog context as well

(I try debugging some IDE extensions)

The utility I posted will parse the user's project context(s) and the Main Application Instance.  I cannot post a utility that will go through private contexts as well.

See my post if you just want to change a modal dialog back to default - rather than abort.... I was inspired by this idea.

We appreciate for the efforts on "Abort VI.vi", recently I faced a problem where the "Statechart - Edit Triggers and Groups" window stops working and we could not close VI's. The alternative is to end the task from windows.The Abort VI.vi also could not stop this.

Here is an unlocked version that only searches the current application instance..  I believe it was created by Dan Gilmore and offered on info-labview.  This version will search for all the modal vis and give a menu to close.

 

I always keep a version in my Dock to get out of self inflicted problems!!

 

Enjoy, and modify away.

 Stupid Freaking Lithium, doesn't allow adding VIs as attachments.  Sheesh.

Here it is as a zip file.  I hear that works sometimes.
