WUELUG06: July 2019

WUELUG06, our sixth meeting, took us back to the HSE head-quarters. In spite of the summer break and travel bans, 18 #LabVIEWfriends went literally the extra mile to join us, two of them new members! The verdict: Excellent presentations, inspiring discussions, and a code review that turned into an LVOOP crash course.

Community Collaboration

Community Collaboration

One of the best things of LabVIEW (if not the best thing) is its awesome community. The readiness to help each other is second to none. In order to do our part, we started making some of our repositories public. And lo and behold, we now have the first collaborator! innofas GmbH, a company specializing in electro-technical vehicle components, utilises our our Generic Networking DQMH modules and agreed to give back to the community by contributing to our public repository.

Motivation

Motivation

There are various definitions of success, and the ones I like revolve around the topic of happiness. Having fun doesn’t hurt, no matter the situation! And work should be fun: We stand up for what’s fun, we enjoy what’s fun, and we do stuff well if it’s fun. And without even noticing, motivation sneaked up and made us do our work better. And I love better!

Separate Compiled Code From Source

Separate Compiled Code From Source

Usually, LabVIEW stores the compiled code used to run a VI together with the graphical code of the VI in the same file. LabVIEW automatically recompiles all changed VIs together with all callers, modifying a lot more files than were actually touched. Your SCC won’t like that! Luckily, there’s an option to separate the compiled code from the graphical source code.

VI Scripting: Add Glyph to VI Icon

VI Scripting: Add Glyph to VI Icon

Using LabVIEW’s VI Scripting features, it is surprisingly easy to create tools that increase development efficiency and enforce coding guidelines. For example, having groups of associated VIs stand out on your block diagrams makes maintenance a lot easier. VI Scripting allows you to add glyphs to VI icons programmatically with very little overhead.
