While working with LabVIEW, especially LabVIEW FPGA we may find it laborious when it comes to renaming multiple controls/indicators on the front panel of the VI. In development time LabVIEW provides us with so called VI Server which can be used for automation of this process. Usage of VI Server itself is not always trivial though and may introduce more overhead than doing the job manually.

Plugin presented below allows you to use simple Python scripts for processing labels of your controls/indicators. Number of scripts is already prepared for you and available for customization. New scripts can be also created and shared with the other users. This way you can take advantage of high-level scripting language for refactoring your LabVIEW code right away.

Plugin itself, as well as usage instructions, including usage examples can be found here.
