User group meeting Notes 1/14/2016

Hello,

I uploaded the LabVIEW 2015 Release notes here

I had a question about different monitor resolution in LabVIEW.  Here are some links about that

We had a discussion at SEMLUG a few years ago about different monitor resolutions.  A comment was made to use fixed width fonts.  Here is a trick to incorporate them in the exe and LabVIEW ini file

appFont="MS Sans Serif" 13
dialogFont="MS Sans Serif" 13
systemFont="MS Sans Serif" 13

The  MS Sans Serif font appears to be consistent across windows releases at  least to XP (I don't have Win7).  You can and probably should create a  separate .ini file for your executables which is settable in the  builder.  Copying these lines to that ini will also keep front panels in  executables "looking" like you intended.

We also talked about how to use FGV as a bridge to OO.  Here is link regarding that

Here is the NAS (Network Attached Storage) I recently bought.  I really like it.

Thanks to everyone who came out.  We are planning on the next topic being about CompactRIO and things I and others in the group have learned.

Thanks!

Dan Shangraw, P.E.
