How to move the origin of the front panel to the top left corner?

Hi wiebe,

That wasn't the intention of my post!

The content was: I still switch between LV2011, LV2017 and LV2020. To keep the IDE the same as far as possible I use tool menu entries…

Ah, OK.

 

When was QD introduced? 11 or 12?

 

You can add it to QD.

Well, sure.

But QD on LV2011 is quite slow and also misses most abbrevations as are incorporated in recent LabVIEW versions. And as I had to use a German LV2011 version (unfortunately) it even doesn't know the English function names, which makes it completely useless (well, 90% useless) to me…

In summary: QD on LV2011 doesn't make sense to me.

 

To get to an end: all I wanted to express is that Paul's suggestion of using a tool menu item is a very valid suggestion.

I'm not sure if it answers OP's question.

 

I actually don't know what the question is exactly 😁.

 

"Permanent" came up, and I think hiding the scrollbars is the only way to do that.

When you select menu -> Tools -> ... Reset VI Origin to 0, it will reset the origin of the topmost VI (I use this tool a lot).


Isn't that what QD, CTRL+O does?


I didn't know that.

8.2, 2009? It's pretty old. It's quite useful for me in 2011, but you need to use project files for it to catch many functions. If using german i guess you need to do a custom setting for more fitting abbreviations.

There is a version of QD available for 8.5, but it became official in 8.6.  But the plugins were not available until 2009.

I can't get myself to use the abbreviations.

 

But CTRL+(SHIFT)+ B, P, T, O, R or I are pretty great. F, K, D, W are a bit harder to get used to.

I have created a small plugin to solve (most of my) problems about this topic and attached the files.

 

What does it do:

- you put a red rectangle to your FP, indicating which part of the FP you want the user to see

- when the plugin is called then it searches for this rectangle and moves all elements on the FP in the way that the red rectangle be at the origin.

- Then it resizes the screen to the size of the rectangle, so everything outside of it becomes hidden from the user.

 

Using this plugin allows super quick and effortless resizing of the screen. No more typing in coordinates or try aligning the FP with scrollbars.

 

How to set up:

- resize FP to mark + its subVI: copy these to your LV\resource\dialog\quickdrop\plugins folder

- assign a key (eg ctrl + K) in the QD setup to the VI

- open the test VI

- resize / move the red rectangle 

- start the plugin

 

I hope somebody else will find it useful as well.

 

(The code is not well written, but feel quite lazy today. I know there is similar functionality exists in LV, but this works better for me.)

Sounds a lot like OpenG's Fit VI To Largest Decoration.

 

OpenG Fit VI to Largest Decoration, How does this work?
