This idea mostly goes along with this idea. I use type def all the time in LabVIEW, especially with enums. TestStand can interact with my VIs with enums, but they are handled as a number. Furthermore, if the enum gets changed, the wrong value of the enum is often used. I really like the idea of custom data type of an enum. The ultimate would be if I only had to alter the enum once (in ctl file) and TestStand would automatically update its data type. This should be the same for clusters.
