In this episode of the VI Shots LabVIEW podcast, I have Darren Nattinger of National Instruments back to chat about his favorite feature of LabVIEW – Quickdrop. Darren is not new to this podcast. I had him on the show back in episode 002 where he gave us some interesting insight to his background and his unique role at NI.
Did you know that Quickdrop was written using LabVIEW? It’s true, which would makes sense since Darren programs exclusively in G. There are also several other interesting and useful tips Darren lays down in this episode, including ways on how to make using quickdrop even faster with Quickdrop shortcuts.
Something that was discussed in the show are Quickdrop plugins. Since 2009, there are a few plugins that ship with LabVIEW. My favorite is the one that moves control labels on the diagram from above to the sides using <ctrl + T>.
