This package contains a bunch of helpful VIs that are useful in almost all applications we develop at MGI.

VI List

Application

VI Description
Center Controls in Pane Moves the origin of the panel to center all visible items in the specified pane.
Enabled If A helpful way to determine the enabled state of a control based on the value of variety of data types.
Get Executable Version Returns a string with the current executable's version.
Gray If A helpful way to determine the disabled state of a control based on the value of variety of data types.
GUIDv4 Generates a UUIDv4 GUID. This GUID complies with RFC4122 and provides a random number based GUID with 122 bits of entropy.
Origin at Top Left Places the referenced VI's front panel's origin at the top left of the pane.
Show Scrollbars if Needed Shows the panel's scrollbars if needed.
VI Reference Opens a reference to the Caller, Current, Top Level, or specified Level VI.

Array

VI Description
Average This VI computes and returns the average value of the given array of numbers.
Delete Elements Deletes several items from an array.
Enumerate Enum Given an enum value this VI will return an array containing one element with each enum value.
Filter 1D Array Removes several items from an array.
Index Elements Selects multiple items from an array.
Natural Sort Sorts the string array by natural order. This means that something like "T2" will come before "T10".
Remove Duplicates Removes duplicate items from an array.
Search Array Finds all indices of the element
Sort 1D Array Sorts a 1D array and keeps track of the pointers.
Topological Sort Topologically Sorts a Directed Graph. Only graphs with no circular dependancies can be sorted.

Error

VI Description
Clear Error A smaller version of the NI supplied clear error. Also adds the ability to clear a range of errors.

File

VI Description
Append Text to File Append "Text" to the file at "Path".
Create Directory Chain This VI creates any non-existant folders in "Path".
Make String Filesafe Remove characters that are not allowed in File or Folder names.
Non Repeating Plot Color Generate colors that are good for a white background and distinguishable from each other.
Replace File Extension This VI creates replaces the file extension on "Path In" with "New Extension."

Timing

VI Description
Milliseconds Since Last Call This VI stores the tick count on a shift register and provides as an output the number of milliseconds since the last time this VI was called.
Milliseconds Since Last Reset Returns the amount of time in milliseconds since the last time the VI was reset.
Wait Waits the specified number of milliseconds. If an error is wired in the no wait is performed.
