Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.

Editing Tips for LabVIEW

Module by: Ed Doering. E-mail the authorEdited By: Erik Luther, Sam Shearman

Summary: Learn how to efficiently create and edit LabVIEW block diagrams and front panels.

Overview

LabVIEW offers an extensive range of techniques to create and edit block diagrams and front panels. This screencast video reviews some of the commonly-used editing techniques, including:

  • adding comments and documentation with text labels
  • placing front panel terminals as icons
  • replacing front panel controls and indicators with alternate forms
  • creating controls, constants, and indicators directly at the terminal (using context menu)
  • cleaning up wire routing (Clean Up Wire context menu)
  • moving objects using arrow keys (fine positioning) and Shift+arrow keys (larger steps)
  • aligning multiple objects
  • replacing nodes and subVIs with similar forms
  • removing all broken wires (Ctrl+B)
  • distributing objects
  • converting front panel controls into constants
  • obtaining help: Context Help and detailed help page
  • adding decorations (arrows, lines, text labels)
  • viewing the Navigation Window
  • replicating existing structures
