Select VI PPL View

Status: New

When choosing a VI for a step, if you browse into a PPL, the view shows the directory structure inside of the PPL.  A better view would match what LabVIEW shows: the Virtual Folder layout.


I tend to keep my library VIs in a flat directory structure, but organize them in my project with Virtual Folders.  But the PPL view in TestStand just shows the single directory instead of the nice organization that I set up in the project.

There are only two ways to tell somebody thanks: Kudos and Marked Solutions

Besides running into this same issue, can we also add an option to hide all VIs that are not public?  I can't make my parent Dynamically Dispatched VIs private since it will break inheritance, but I can make them protected.  However, keeping them in protected still makes them show up in Teststand's PPL viewer.
