keybord trick to insert quickly a value into a constant array

Solved!
Go to solution

Hi everybody,
I want just to know if there is a keybaord trick which allows yuo to pass quickly from an element to the next one (or to new one) while I'm typing the values into a constant array, you know if is there?

What I mean is a keybord key as the TAB key that quickly allow you to pass from a cell to the next one into the grid control.

Thank you in advance,
Regards.

Possible solution here, if you're a Quick-Dropper.  Type your stuff into Excel, copy the array and use this QD plugin.

Create some cells in Excel (or other similar program), select and copy to the clipboard.  (Any tab delimited data will work).  On the FP Ctrl-Space Ctrl-e creates a control with the data in numeric form (simple check to decide DBL or I32).  Ctrl-Space Ctrl-E (shift+e) creates a string control.  Similar commands for the BD to create array constants (numbers or string).  Single rows or columns become 1D arrays, otherwise you get 2D array controls/constants.  Change the letter by renaming e.vi if you'd like.  I chose e for Excel since X was taken along with s for spreadsheet and a for array.

It seems to work very well, but do you also know how work the second tools (darin.k_lib_import_data-1.0.1.1.vip 72 KB)? Do I have to install it in the same way?

You only need that if you prefer to use JKI's Right Click Framework.  If Quick-Drop satisfies your requirements you can ignore the second one.

The RCF is free, as is the VIPM that you need to install it.  The license you can buy would be for VIPM Professional, which you don't need for this.

 

I'm glad this works for you.  There are a lot of QD and RCF plugins available to do a plethora of useful automation tasks.
