I can't take all the credit for the find/announcement

http://forums.lavag.org/index.php?showtopic=208

Someone 'PJM Lv' announced it to infoLV w/ much greater detail before myself. Not being an active member at that time, I thought I stumbled onto something first.

I have 3 pages of notes on the different structures for the opCodes. Untill I can write a white paper, I may just have to scan them in and post here.
 
OOOOOOhhhhhh <Insert thunderclap here> something just hit me. Combining this knowledge within an actual LVOOP object to enhance the interaction and image manipulation possibilites.
 
Now if I only had the time..... oooh just got another idea for all you musicians. write a song to the tune of 'if I only had a brain' but about the cool LV things you would do if you'only had the time'Smiley Wink

I guess that'll have to do for now. If you can combine some VIs with it, it would be even better.

Norm,

to bypass tst. I kindly ask you to scan the documents and upload them to the knowledge base of Lava. I am looking for a white paper on the picture control (birthday wish).
On the KB@lava we can cooperate, maybe Ben can kick in some of his knowledge?

"Ben can kick in some of his knowledge?"
 
I am not qualified to carry the ball on this one but I can kick it around a little.
 
The KB article on LAVA is a good idea. I'll watch for it and contribute what I can.
 
I'll see what  I can do to support Paul Ausitn's* invention.
 
BTW:
This Q reveals my age but did anyone else notice the similarties between HPGL and the Picture Control data format?

From what I heard that HPGL was the basis for the structure.... but that's just what a little worm told me before the little birdie came along and ate it.

There's a opcode that's not used in any VI:

22: Set Rectangular Mask

 

See this idea (that nobody seems to like) for a working VI...

 

There's another opcode that sets the offset for coordinates. But it's so low level, it can actually set the drawing outside the picture control.
