Magic Connector Linker is a LabVIEW add-on that saves you time by speeding up the arduous process of building a connector pane. You can replace all the many clicks necessary to do this properly (“This connection is…”) with just a few clicks.

Additionally, you achieve:

-Nice-looking front panels for your subVIs
-Improved programming practices like using 4-2-2-4 connectors or documenting default values of optional controls
-Use of the TabClick: Clicking function/subVI on the block diagram while holding the Tab key to quickly open the relevant function palette

Follow these steps for use

1. After you launch Tools → GENIVIEW → Magic Connector Linker, Magic Connector Linker monitors which VI is active at the moment.
2. Click the Drop pattern button to create a big, comfortable connector pane on the active VI’s front panel.
3. Move your controls to the appropriate connector fields and click Connect controls.
4. That’s it!
5. If your controls are too big, just copy your controls’ labels into the free label and use the free label instead.
