QuickDrop - Add object in LV 2016

Solved!
Go to solution

In LV2015 and before, I could add my own front panel object by saving a copy of it in the  <LabVIEW>/resource/dialog/QuickDrop folder and adding a shortcut with the file name in the Labview.ini file.

 

It does not work with LabVIEW 2016 anymore. Anyone can tell me how I can use Quickdrop to insert my own front panel objects with LabVIEW 2016?

Objects should be in your user.lib folder as *.ctl or *.vi and added to your palette.  Only shortcut plugins should be in the QuickDrop folder.

Thanks crossrulz,

 

That's the "adding to palette" that I forgot. Crazy what a year can do to your brain.
