LV 2016: Strange Wiring Path...

I like the new dynamic update of the diagram in LV 2016, especially because it can be entertaining.

Take this example which I captured on video:


Strange Wiring Path...


The VI's connector pane is nothing but standard:

but for whatever reason (maybe because the VI was created using the "Create VI..." function, whose notoriously wild wiring pattern I do not need to remind you of), the input's wire makes a full turn around the VI.

I do not have auto-wiring and all these options on.


After the capture, grabbing the terminal doesn't result in this weird behavior, so I believe there is some kind of short term memory of the original wire pattern, which eventually is lost, and the normal wire behavior is recovered.


I will make sure to provide a step-by-step reproducible example next time I catch it.

By popular demand, here is an example VI that shows this wire path weirdness.

I initially suspected that this depends somewhat on the BD options, so I pasted those I used in the BD. Default settings except for the Enable automatic wire routing and Enable auto wiring options, which I turned off.

Mike Porter will be thrilled to learn that changing these options to the most drastic following values:

changes nothing to this behavior.

Another video example of the kind of fun this otherwise great new LV 2016 feature offers:
