Hello, I am using the package builder to package a library. I don't want to use the default palette that recreates the folder hierarchy, but group VIs by functions to make an intuitive palette. The library is used to communicate with an instrument, and my target location is the intr.lib folder. I have therefore chosen this folder on the "source File settings" pane. Then on the "palette" pane, I have edited the function palette to include and group the different VIs as I want them to appear in the palette menu. I have also chosen "instrument drivers" in the palette location box, as it is where I want my custom palette to be located. When I install the package, everything works fine, but my library appears twice on the instrument drivers palette: once with the custom palette I created, and once recreating the folder hierarchy of the package. I'm assuming that the second one is automatically included by LabVIEW as it scans the sub-folders in the inst.lib folder and create a palette for this. I have found a workaround which is to physically locate the files in another folder, however this solution is obfuscating and it would be more logical to have the files physically located in the instr.lib folder as well. What would be the best way to proceed? Thanks for your help!
I'm trying to move my palette location to the Instrument Drivers when building a new package. But once I click on the "Browse for Functions Palette Path" the dialog comes up and never gets past "Populating..." I've tried waiting a good 10-15 minutes and it's still stuck on there, I tried running as administrator and that makes no difference. Am I being too impatient, do I need to wait half an hour or something, or should it populate fairly quickly? EDIT: I've waited over an hour now, and still no luck.
Hi, I am building a small automation tool to build packages for my project. As a part of it, i would like to display the VI icon that will be displayed the Functions/control palette. I tried reading the build spec as an XML file, but I am getting only a series of Hex numbers. Could someone suggest me a way to generate the icon which is displayed in the build spec. Thanks, Pranay
