Write your own Quick Drop plugin

Is there something that you do over and over as you program in LabVIEW? You can automate these repetitive tasks by writing your own quick drop plugin. It's pretty easy and LabVIEW provides a default template for these plugins. 

You can find this template at:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2017\resource\dialog\QuickDrop\QuickDrop Plugin Template.vi

The template gives you a good idea of how to get started on writing your own plugins. To add quick drop plugin VIs to LabVIEW create a "Quick Drop Plugins" directory within your LabVIEW Data directory and place your plugins there. If this seems hard or too time consuming you can always add plugins written by other developers. At Endigit we host a team repo of our favorite Quick Drop plugins both written by team members and accumulated from the community.
