This package has 2 main sets of features to reduce the time spent with simple but tedious tasks in LabVIEW: project tooling and code snippets.

A video preview of the features is available at and as a link in the github readme.

The project tooling adds a context menu entry to create common virtual folder structures for classes and to save a virtual folder layout for quick setup later.

The code snippets center around DVR usage and include the nested structures commonly used for reading values out of DVRs, writing values into DVRs, and doing in-place updates of values in DVRs. Also included is a snippet for launching asynchronous VIs with a ring that gives more meaninful descriptions of the Open VI Ref options.

Release Notes (Feb 21, 2023)
- Now the menu name is actually changed. It helps to look at the correct VM for the right source code...
- Forgot to add new VI to palettes.

- Change context menu name to IG Tools
- Add folder scaffolding to LVLibs.
- Add Launch Reusable VI snippet following Launch Actor Core pattern to avoid root loop blocks on successive calls.
- Fix BD terminal layout bug if LV didn't place the Call Parent Method node when creating an override.
- Fix BD layout when overriding VIs that do not have all class / error terminals.
