[minor bug] Flat Sequence Structure context help shows stacked sequence

I just noticed this... if you bring up context help and mouse over a label in a FSS, it shows context help for SSS.  Its very minor, but I thought it interesting.

What version of LabVIEW?  The correct context help shows up for me with LabVIEW 2017.


EDIT:  Okay, I was able to replicate this in LabVIEW 2017 once I looked closer at your screenshot.

The FSS seems to work fine, until you turn on the subdiagram label.  Hover over the label, (like shown in your picture), it shows the SSS help.  Move off and hover over the frame of the sequence, and it will then correctly show the FSS help.


Interesting bug you found.

I see it here in LV 2015 SP1 as well.  The SSS just won't go away.  Smiley Wink

It's been a few months since I've seen "that" thread get bumped with another beginner developer arguing for SSS use.


Edit:  Never mind!  I guess I missed its yearly resurgence in early Aug...

Hi BowenM,


Interesting find. I was able to reproduce it in LabVIEW 2017 so I'll inform R&D. I'll follow up with a post here if a Corrective Action Request is filed on the issue.
