  1. Some advanced users are asking for support to install VIPM for Windows onto a Docker container. This would allow creating fully automated build processes that spin up virtual machines that have LabVIEW and VIPM installed on them, so that VI Packages can be created automatically.

  2. It would also be nice to have the shell menu option "Add to VIPM Library." on *.vip files and not only on *.vipc files. This way *.vip files can be added to the VIPM library from the windows explorer without having to install them.

  3. I'd love to see these three License-related improvements to VIPM: 1) First, a main window column showing the package license, so it becomes very easy to see whether a package is open source, freeware, proprietary/custom, or something else. It'd be nice if the column title could be clicked to sort sort packages by license type: 2) To complement this, a change to the filter box with options to filter by license type, or maybe a second filtering box for this specific purpose. This would further help those searching for packages to focus on finding one they can afford and actually u

  4. I have installed LABVIEW 2019, and I followed the procedures to make sure VIPM can communicate with VIPM 2018.0.0f2: https://support.jki.net/hc/en-us/articles/214135683-Resolving-issues-with-VIPM-connecting-to-LabVIEW But, still I do not see LABVIEW 2019 listed within the VIPM window: Any clue on how o solve this? Thanks

  5. I think I see what you're saying -- if an older version of the package is published in a repository, but the installed/latest (i.e. displayed) version is not published, it would be helpful to know that it's a development version that's not yet "officially" published to the repo. This is different, perhaps, than a package where no versions are published. Idea: Maybe VIPM should display "Local" as the Repository name if no versions of the package are published. This deserves some more thought, for sure. I'm glad you have a workable solution, for now. Thanks for sharing these ideas.

  6. Currently at our company we are building internal toolkits which we use for projects, but do not put it to LVTN. Toolkits are published via OneDrive, everyone has mapped same local folder as repository in VI Package Manager. Different toolkits are handled by different developers. And sometimes there is a situation, when new version of toolkit is built, installed locally and tested, but it is not published to our local repository. It would be nice (I understand that on the other hand it is not such a common case) to have it in such a way, that: - developer installs new version of

  7. Just the idea - not sure whether it is possible to implement. There are some packages, which are used as dependencies in other packages. And, we can find dependencies of the packages by sending package to configuration; but we can not find packages which are dependent on some particular packages. If we could do something like right click on the package in the list -> Find dependent packages, and it would show us list of packages (ideally even not installed) which use that package as dependency, that could be sometimes useful. Now, for example, we use some package as dependenc

  8. Hi, I would like to ask for a help with the following issue: I am trying to distribute VIP file with some dependencies, which are not published on VIPM. Hence, I added them to VIPC and would like to distribute this VIPC with VIP file. Is this somehow possible?

  9. Howdy V, I have not previously done exactly what you are asking, but have done some similar tasks. We use VIPM Pro and a local repository to distribute packages not found in the public repositories; not only our internally developed packages. First, using VI Package Builder's Destinations and Source File Settings pages you can easily include the file and specify where it is installed. Second, using the Custom Actions you can specify a VI to run Before or After the package install. Use the Generate VI button to create a template VI and save into your package project; I create a C

  10. I do not know what I am doing wrong: I have an account on https://www.vipm.io/ where I can log in. I have VIPM installed and it was just recently automatically updated. I am able to install i2 JSON for 2018-64 I am not able to log in for "community" or "free" status. When I choose in the new window "Use existing JKI account" I get an error message, when using the account data for www.vipm.io. I also get an error when choosing "Sing up for a new JKI account". When pressing "Forgot your password?" an new tab in the browser opens where I can write my mail address and it tells

  11. Hi, I am having an issue with functions palette I generate in VIPM. The palette is generated and behaves correctly in LabVIEW, however, when I click "show in palettes" in VIPM after installing toolkit, instead of my functions palette, Agilent 34401 palette is displayed. Any idea what might be wrong?

  12. John, check out "Test Runner Pre-build action.vi" in the 1.0 release. I'm not sure what the current version is on LVTN, but you can find 1.0 on GitHub: https://github.com/JKISoftware/Caraya/tree/release/1.0.0/src The first snippet below is the Pre-Build action itself, the second is the actual guts of where the test gets invoked. Let me know if that doesn't get you started in the right direction or you have more questions.

  13. In any validation setting, the tolerances around measured and reported values is critical, and so is tracking the tolerances for any given parameter being measured, with any measurement device or sensor. To automate the calculation of these ranges and limits within our overall application, we must track the specifications of any of these parameters. This used to be done using a peer reviewed excel table, and was loaded into LabVIEW using the Report Generation Toolkit. This had several drawbacks, but that's not the point of this post. The point is that using Excel means that any text becomes fr

  17. In version 1.0.3 we've added System Arrays to the "System" theme of the JKI Design Palette. There are two different System Arrays arrays. 1) There's one with a "System Spin Control" for the Index Display (with increment and decrement buttons), which is nice because it's similar to the other array controls (Classic, etc.) 2) There's another one with a "System Numeric" for the Index Display (without increment and decrement buttons), which is nice because sometimes you don't want/need the increment and decrement buttons. These are really useful for creating nice Sys

  18. Nice. The empty clusters and arrays now work without issues! Here is a suggestion for the existing clusters/arrays that contain a delete me button (in case you need to keep it after the latest upgrade): why not make the text hidden and the color transparent so it won't even appear (since it is going to be deleted anyway) And for the decorations, I suggest that you put the decoration on top of an transparent empty cluster that will get deleted after being placed on the FP (in a similar approach to the above).

  19. Yeah I was able to replicate the issues that you described. Creating and empty array/cluster caused all the controls to disappear on the palette. That is why the existing clusters in the palette contains a dummy "Delete Me" control :). You can do the same with a decoration to add it to the palette: AA

  22. Hello Jim, It used to be that older versions of VIPM could connect to the newest versions of LABVIEW. Is there any particular reason why this changed? This issue seems to have happened from the VIPM 2018 Version because it was a major update. Is this going to happen for all versions of VIPMs in the future? The problem is that I have a licence for VIPM 2018, and now I can't use VIPM 2018 with LABVIEW 2019 (I won't be able to generate VIPC files without the licence). thanks Helcio

  23. Get the JKI State Machine Editor (just check VIPM for package updates) Version 2013.4.0.186 This new release adds a right-click option called "Find Data Accessors" to Bundle by Name and Unbundle by Name nodes in a JKI State Machine. Using this feature will open a dialog showing all the frames of the JKI State Machine that access the data, as shown below:

  24. I found one problem that occurs to me. "Find Data Accessors" is available in any VI (not only JKI State Machine) for the Unbudle by Name function, but its call does not cause the appropriate list to be displayed in the dialog box, although the application is started and consumes processor resources. Calling it several times on a notebook with an i5-4210M processor results in 100% CPU load. I've attached a screenshot for the FMSM example from LabVIEW example projects. As you can see, also Add Dynamic Events and JKI State Machine Editor... are visible - only when pop-up on Bundle/Unbundle by Nam

I've written up some info about this issue here: https://lavag.org/topic/21753-1d-array-to-string-not-compiling-correctly/ OpenG String v4.1.1.16 should fix this issue (although it's simply working around the LabVIEW compilation bug, which could potentially be causing other issues) I'm going to work to report this to NI, since we can reproduce the issue.

  27. Hello @Jim Kring, thank you for the provided files for unpack/repack the package. I've tried to implement post-build action, but seems that there are 2 issues. 1. Seems, that post-build action is not executed. I've put breakpoint to post-build action VI - and nothing happened during the build, VI was not executed. Also, spec file was not modified. Could it be the bug, and post-build action is disabled for Community edition (the same situation as with flags?). 2. I've prepared VI in order to modify package manually (as post-build action was not called). When I

  28. OK, I think we're getting closer to figuring this out. It appears that when VIPM Community is activated the Restart LabVIEW setting is not being applied correctly to the built package settings -- this is a bug. It'll file a bug for this and have our team look into.

  29. hi @Jim Kring, I've updated to the latest version, and my manager purchased a Professional License for me yesterday evening... but this is still not working. I see that the update has locked out the BD of the VIs - so I guess that was an oversight in your last package release. I can't see anything useful now for debugging now, all I'm getting is a hang. What is wrong with my attempt please? (I'm trying to use the API to populate (and create) a VIPC file based on a project name and I looks like it should be easy.) Unless it's something to do with the service keep crashing?

  30. I was trying to apply a vipc using the API and it tells me 20.0 isn't a valid LabVIEW version. Digging into I found this: see attached image. Maybe you guys were a little too optimistic about the switch to NXG and figured wed never see 20.0?

  31. When I've installed and activated "JKI Design Palette", everything worked. But then, on LabVIEW restart, the following error occurs, and I can't launch the pallete. What could cause this issue please? Could there be something missing? Because VIPM does not show any missing dependencies... Also, I use the latest build of "JKI Design Palette", and LabVIEW 2017. Thanks a lot in advance, Sincerely, Ivan.

  32. Alin, Thanks for the detailed description of the bug. It helped me to reproduce it. I have recorded this issue as Case 18752 for consideration. I can't promise when this will be fixed but we will inform you when that happens. Since JKI State Machine Editor is open source, you can post any issues in GitHub: https://github.com/JKISoftware/JKI-State-Machine-Editor/issues Take care and stay safe.

  34. I tried installing the new VIPM2017 for Linux in a clean Fedora 27 virtual machine just to give it a try but I can't get it to do anything. I followed the two basic steps: 1) install LVRTE 2015SP1 which installs without any problems or errors 2) copy JKI folder to /usr/local as described in the instruction.txt When launching vipm I just get the blunt error: No such file or directory as shown below sudo ./vipm sudo: unable to execute ./vipm: No such file or directory What could be the problem and how could it be resolved?

  40. Ah, I got it... See if this works -- I just tried it on my computer and I think it does... 1) Open your type definition in the control editor (right click on it and choose Open Type Def.) 2) In the control editor, select the enum... 3) Follow steps #1-4 in my previous post. 4) Save+close the type definition Does that do it?

  41. To pair with the 'Save' and 'Save As' buttons, it'd be nice to have built-in buttons for other common file operations. Take the File menu from Windows 10 Wordpad as an example. The ones missing from this would be 'New', 'Load', 'Email', and 'Exit'.

  42. A mouse over hover effect has become standard in most major software UIs. This effect allows users to interact with controls in a more intuitive way and gives users confidence that they are making the selection that they intend. However there is a long standing NI bug that renders the hover effect inconsistent (see the discussion here: https://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/Button-Boolean-mouse-hover-not-working-on-64-Bit-LabVIEW/m-p/3944252#M1121887) Until NI makes a fix one 'solution' that I will employ is to disable the hover effect with the controls that I am using so that users do not get

  47. Hi Helcio, Yes, this happened in 2018. Our official statement about this is included in the release notes: "In order to best support our customers and ensure LabVIEW compatibility, VIPM supports new versions of LabVIEW as they are released. There are many instances where older versions of VIPM do not work well with newer versions of LabVIEW, due to changes in where/how LabVIEW and its files get installed." JKI has to provide support for each new version of LabVIEW as it's released, so we needed to align our support and releases with LabVIEW.
