Description

A LabVIEW Quick-Drop plug-in for implementing the standard LabVIEW error handling functionality: it draws an error structure around existing elements on the block diagram.

The default shortcut from Quick-Drop is
Ctrl + e

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Many of the plugin's config settings can be easily modified from within "ErrorDrawerConfig.vi". These settings include the style used for creating error controls, alignment type used for controls and indicators, and the spacings used between various elements.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The plugin has slightly different functionality depending on what items (if any) are already on the block diagram, but the general behaviour includes:

- Creates a new case structure around existing block diagram elements.
- Creates a new error control and error terminal if not already present on the top-level diagram.
- Moves all control and indicator terminals present on the top-level diagram to position them on the left and right of the new case structure respectively. Also aligns each group.
- Wires the error control to the new case structure's selector terminal, and wires from the inside of the selector terminal through the error case to the error indicator.
- Connects the error control and error indicator to the connector pane - to the bottom-left and bottom-right nodes respectively.
