Here is a little head-scratcher that happened to me today. The right-click menu for String controls and indicators seems to have vanished. All other controls have normal menus, and if I find the right spot in empty space, I get the Visible Items submenu to appear.
Restart computer and LabVIEW seems to have no effect.
Solved! Go to Solution.
how about use the uninstall option to Repair LabVIEW (or a complete reinstall)
Did anything happen from when this wasn't a problem to when you noticed it? Which version of LV are you using? What OS? I also recommend a repair or reinstall.
Please let us know how it goes!
Not sure what brought it on. I created a new VI, wanted a scrollbar on my string indicator and poof. Tried a few existing VIs with string controls with no luck. It is LV2009 on XP professional.
I was hoping for a surgical strike and trying to hold out for my Q4 update disks, but I brought the hammer down this morning and did a reinstall. It revived the menu for new VIs, but a couple of them that I worked on yesterday seemed to have been wonked permanently. They have been recycled with extreme prejudice and I consider this a success. Maybe next time this can happen to a control I don't care about. Thanks.
