LabView QuickDrop AddLabels

A LabVIEW Quick-Drop (QD) plug-in to easily add or remove labels to blockdiagram elements.

Installation

The plug-in is published as a VIPM Community package. Search for QuickDrop AddLabels in the VI Package Manager and install it easily. Otherwise you can download the VIP package from the Release page and install it manually.

Usage

This quick-drop plug-in works only in the block diagram.

If you insert a text into the QD combo box it will be inserted as subdiagram label of the visible frame.

Add or remove a label to a wire

Select a wire. Press Ctrl+Space to open the quick drop. Insert a label text to the input field. Press Ctrl+Q to add the inserted label to the wire. The plug-in will add >> before and after the label text. For removing the label press Ctrl+Spaceand Ctrl+Shift+Q. If you want to add the removed label again press Ctrl+Space and Ctrl+Q.

  • Add/Remove a label to a SubVI.
  • Add/Remove a subdiagram label to a structure element.
  • Add/Remove a label to a wire
  • Show again an already set wire label

Using the plug-in

It is also possible to select more than one element within a blockdiagram. Therefore the appropriate label will be added to the selected elements.

Hints

The plug-in uses a malleable VI. Therefore the plug-in only works with LabVIEW 2017 and above.
