automatic terminal and indicator creation

Hi,

 

I'd like to know if it's possible to automatically create the indicator and control on the front panel when you put a subVI on the back panel.

For example i just want to drag my subVI on the back panel and the diferent control and indicator is automatically created without go in the back panel and create it 1 per 1

Use Quickdrop shortcut ctrl-space-ctrl-d…

Is it possible to have the same result without the shortcut ?

How often do you need ALL inputs/outputs of a subVI wired automatically?

I would be very concerned when LabVIEW would create them with each subVI I place in the BD…

 

IMHO the ctrl-space-ctrl-d is convenient and just 2 keystrokes to success… 😄

Everytime an user insert a subVI I'd to generate the Input and output of the subVI .

 

I've got a library of subVI test, the users choose their tests and insert it for create a test sequence.

 

For specify the different parameter of a test (a subVI) the user have to see the control and indicator of the subVI on the main VI front panel without create them 1 per 1

Sounds like you want to dive into LVScripting…

If it's the solutions for doing this yes ‌‌😅
But I'm a beginner with LabVIEW... Do you think this task requieres a huge level of knowledge ?

I'm looking the NI tutorial for scripting but I don't really understand why i have to dive into the LVScripting for solve my problem of subVI 🤔

You want to do an automatic action when a (sub)VI is placed on a block diagram. And that action is "creating new source code automatically": that is what LVScripting is made for!

It requires a (very) good understanding of LabVIEW!

Using ctrl-space-ctrl-d is done with much less understanding, but still uses LVScripting under the hood…

If you already have all the SubVIs, may be you can use a SubPanel.

Instead of re-create controls/indicators, simply re-use the SubVIs front panel.

The problem is they must be created automatically so I haven't got really choice...

Do you know where I can find some documentation to have a good starting point ?

The LabVIEW documentation is so huge you easely lost when read it
