VI snippets[edit]

hi, great to see you figured out a nice way to present LABview.

may i suggest to add the {{VI snippet}} template to the image itself too, for the benefit of anyone who follows a link to the image directly?--eMBee 03:20, 17 January 2012 (UTC)

It's a good idea, thanks! Perhaps I should change Template:VI_snippet to say "This image" instead of "the following image."
I saw your edit, but note that Windows Explorer != Internet explorer. --Crazyfirex 12:37, 17 January 2012 (UTC)
oh, i got the two confused. that said i don't know anything about windows, i simply misread the original text and thought it was talking about IE. i didn't mean to imply that it actually works with IE. does it? what i actually meant to express is that it works from any filebrowser, not just windows. labview runs on linux too.--eMBee 13:43, 17 January 2012 (UTC)
Windows Explorer is the file browser for Windows, and covers 90%+ of all LabVIEW users (I bet.) Should we change "Windows Explorer" to "File Browser?" I would guess that more people would recognize the latter. -- Crazyfirex (NLI)
it could be changed to "Windows Explorer or any other File Browser". there is even a chance that in linux it works by dragging directly from the browser, but i can't test that, so this is not relevant. the issue i have with saying "it works from Windows Explorer" is, that it implies that it only works from Windows Explorer. presumably labview users would know what drag and drop is, and if the instructions say to download and then drag i think that's obvious enough. anyway, it's not a big deal.--eMBee 06:53, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
