English lesson

When moving a label or a caption, it is attracted by its terminal when it gets close to it. How do you call this ?

I would like to post an idea (same effect for VI Polymorphic Selector) but don't know the exact term to use.

 

Like a label or a caption of a terminal, the Polymorphic VI Selector should be attracted by its VI when moving it. 

 

Can someone reformulate this idea in better English ?

 

Many thanks in advance.

It would help if I understood what you are trying to say.  What do you mean that the label or caption are attracted to a terminal?  Is this a feature in LAbVIEW > 2012?

I think I would use "snap" or "auto-snap".

 

I wish polymorphic terminal snaps to corner and center position around the VI's icon like the label snaps around its control.

Yes and I would like the same effect for the Polymorphic VI Selector when it is moved close to its VI.

Merci TiTou.

Le décodage anglais-->français de mon codage français-->anglais semble avoir plutôt bien fonctionné. Quel algorithme as-tu utilisé ? Tordu de rire !

Not at all.  Text was fine but the behaviour you are describing (without it being described in more detail) is not known to me.  Hence my question whether this is a new feature or I have just missed something.

Again, is this a new LabVIEW feature? The reason I'm asking is because I've never noticed this behaviour before.

 

Irrespective of language, references to existing behaviour are always going to be laden with misunderstanding if you pass the message on to groups of people both with and without the knowledge of that behaviour.  Those without knowledge of the behaviour will not understand the context of your message even if the language is technically perfect.  Therefore if it is a new feature, you need to mention that so that you don't completely confuse those without prior knowledge.

Are you that far back in time Intaris?

 

Not sure when labels and captions started to snap positions around their controls/indicators but LV2010 has it for sure.
