Here are a few others ideas that you can check out in the LabVIEW 2011 Beta:
Like JackDunawaysays, the Distribute tool is endlesslyuseful. This idea to expand the use of this feature to distribute blockdiagram wires is nothing short of genius. I can already think of at least 50times in my life that this tool would save me time clicking and movingindividual wires…mainly because I’m entirely too meticulous…sometimes I scareeven myself.
My programming technique is a little raw. I still like towrite sections of my application into the same diagram, and then create subVIsfrom common functions and modules to clean up the code. As such, I use theCreate SubVI function in the Edittoolbar A LOT. Like, a lot a lot.Not a lot like an engineer-in-the-making passes up on the opportunity to talk to a hot girl, but a lot a lot…likean engineer drawing a to-scale map when giving directions. TST’s idea to actually have this function create the properconnector pane was amazing, incredible, possibly even genius.
You can check all of these functions out, as well as theother features implemented in LabVIEW 2011, in the LabVIEW 2011 Beta. Visit ni.com/beta to get signed up today!
