Issue Details

I want to add my Custom Device to a folder in the Custom Device list

Solution

  1. Open up the Custom Device XML file for your Custom Device
  2. Under the "AddMenu" element tree, modify the "eng" and "loc" elements to the format of "Folder Name::Custom Device Name"
    • For example, the Embedded Data Logger Custom Device is stored in the National Instruments folder by default. The AddMenu portion of Custom Device XML is as follows:
<AddMenu>
    <eng>National Instruments::Embedded Data Logger</eng>
    <loc>National Instruments::Embedded Data Logger</loc>
</AddMenu>
