I have similar projects that can started from a template. I would like to create a template and instantiate the project from custom template. What is the procedure/process to create my own project template in LabVIEW NXG?.
For right now it looks you cannot create your own template in LabVIEW NXG.
This is an good solution if all of your subVIs and files are located within the project folder.
It is less good if you have subVIs that are located in a shared directory. It could also lead to cross linking.
Manual Copy Paste Method could lead to issues like
- When there are classes and lvlib copied from one project to another project, these files has to be manually renamed in the new location. In case if we do not rename, there are multiple lvlib files in the same exist in the system. As long as, one project is open at a time, this is not a problem. But practically, we tend to open class and lvlib files from one project while the files from the other project is open unintentionally. This will lead to unnecessary problems.
I prefer using project templates to copy a project and rename (append a prefix) all the files to avoid issues.
@NI, When can we expect create your own project template feature in LabVIEW NXG?
Do you have LV? Write a quick VI to copy/rename files at your will. That'll be much quicker than waiting for a new feature when 2.0 was just released
