So I have a lightbulb moment today: why do I have to switch from LabVIEW to VIPM to build packages? Why can't I right click on a package build definition in my project's "Build Specifications" and either edit the configuration or build it directly from there?
My VIPM Package Table has so many entries now that I have to scroll up and down to view all the entries. I was thinking that a Tree View of the packages would make it easier to view and organise.
For instance the OpenG Package would be the root folder and clicking on this folder would show all the individual packages ie. Array Library, Boolean Library etc..
Given the graphical paradigm of LabVIEW I think it would be sweet if I could click on an icon I see in the Insert >> LabVIEW Primitive... dialog to select it for the palette (rather than just text).
Just a small one... ...I think it would be sweet if the Insert >> LabVIEW Primitive... Dialog defaults to the previous search.
This may be an edge case not worth the time but I thought I'd throw it out there. It would be nice if you didn't have to wait for the Palette Dialog to refresh if you have already opened it. A refresh button could force an update or it could refresh after each install (in the background could be nice).
Have been playing with the Custom Category and I really like it.
