Labview has grown so complex and powerful that the necessity has arisen for a book like this. Inevitable, I suppose. A lot of the recommedations by Blume are applicable to any GUI designer. Like minimising the text in labels. Few users want to or will read large paragraphs or long sentences pasted into labels. These act instead to clutter up the real estate of the display, and often will confuse the new user or irritate the experienced user, who does not need such a laborious elaboration. Another tip is to avoid string controls unless really required. The problem here is that the user then has many ways to enter a badly formatted string. Perhaps it should be a decimal integer. But she sticks a letter in it. In general, you should make the input widgets as robust as possible against faulty user input. Of course, many tips are specific to Labview. Try to have data flowing mostly in one direction in a circuit diagram. And not left to right, right to left, up and down. More generally, whenever you have wires, minimise the number of bends. Makes the overall picture much clearer for a user to grasp. All of which makes this book well worth it for a Labview designer.
