You must specify which front panel or block diagram objects to apply a shortcut menu plug-in. In the type definition of the plug-in, you specify the refnum types of the objects. A single right-click on an object may generate references to more than one refnum type. Use the Lookup All Shortcut Menu Tags And Types plug-in to help you identify the affected refnum types. When you right-click an object and select the Lookup All Shortcut Menu Tags And Types plug-in, LabVIEW displays a list of refnum types affected by the right-click. Use the refnum types to specify the object your plug-in affects.

The Lookup All Shortcut Menu Tags And Types plug-in also lists the menu item tags for every shortcut menu item. Use the menu item tags to customize where to display your plug-in item in the shortcut menu.

To use the Lookup All Shortcut Menu Tags And Types plug-in, copy the following LLB:

labview\resource\plugins\PopupMenus\support\Lookup All Shortcut Menu Tags And Types.llb

Paste the LLB into the following directory:

labview\resource\plugins\PopupMenus\edit time panel and diagram

To remove the Lookup All Shortcut Menu Tags And Types plug-in from the shortcut menu, delete the Lookup All Shortcut Menu Tags And Types.llb and restart LabVIEW.
