This simple Quick Drop shortcut will find the location of a VI on disk, open a new Windows Explorer window at that folder location, and highlight the VI. If the file is not saved to disk, a popup will warn you of this.
To install this simply copy the VI to the <LabVIEW>\resource\dialog\QuickDrop\plugins directory.
To run it, press Ctrl-Space and then Ctrl-F.
To modify the key combination, press Ctrl-Space, click "Shortcuts..." and then navigate to the "Ctrl-key shortcuts" tab.
For more useful Quick Drop plugins, see the Quick Drop Enthusiasts community group.
Will use this regularly. Thanks!
The tag says LB2010, but this VI is for LabView2011, please can you put a LabVIEW 2010 version here for the unfortunate few who have not updated yet please? Many thanks!
I have installed this plugin as specified above, but it does not show up in the "Ctrl-Key Shortcuts" window, could there be something I am doing wrong?
Many thanks, Alec
The following snippet add feature to show selected subVI in the Windows Explorer when shift is TRUE.
I modified this too. I updated the search so that if a file isn't in a folder, it keeps going up until it is in a folder. This can happen when you try to open explorer to a VI in a LLB. My method will keep going up then open explorer to the folder the LLB is in, and then select it.
I also modified it so that if you hold Shift the path to the VI is copied to the clipboard.
