Re: List of Community Quick Drop Keyboard Shortcuts

I put a control down and ment it to be a typedef, it changed a few times while I was coding. The replace quickdrop shortcut is a life saver, but if i didnt have to type the name every time to replace it would be a slight bit faster.

Record the ctrl used in a text file for later used.

This VI has the information of the ctrl:

C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2013\resource\dialog\QuickDrop\QuickDrop Launch Window.vi

Re: List of Community Quick Drop Keyboard Shortcuts

Is there some quick-drops, to insert breakpoint? I know that it could be done by right-click, but with quick-drop it could be faster... And if such quick-drop does not exist, is there a way, of how to add breakpoint to block diagram? I've googled a bit, but didn't find the info...

Thanks a lot in advance!

Re: List of Community Quick Drop Keyboard Shortcuts

You could try using LVHotkeys. You just hover over the wire and press b on the keyboard to set/unset a breakpoint.

Re: List of Community Quick Drop Keyboard Shortcuts

It could possibly be faster with a quick drop, but what I always do if I plan to drop more than one is "Shift-Right Click" switch from auto tool to the break point tool.  Then you can just click to drop as many as you want.  Same goes for probes (I use that one a lot more often).

Re: List of Community Quick Drop Keyboard Shortcuts

I think this kind of operation is better with a custom right-click menu, particularly since you can't use Quick Drop at runtime, but you may want to set a breakpoint at runtime. We already have a custom right-click for moving the breakpoint menu options up into the top-level right-click menu, see here.
