Linked Tunnels

Linked tunnels are a new feature of LabVIEW 8.6

Linked tunnels save you from the tedious process of wiring through frames of a case structure when you add new frames or when you add new tunnels to a structure that already has multiple frames. It's easy. Just right-click on an output tunnel and choose an item from the Linked Input Tunnel shortcut menu. You can create the link and wire all the unwired cases, or just create the link. After that, as you create new frames in your case structure, LabVIEW will automatically wire the linked tunnels. This feature also works on event structures.

It's obvious to me now, but did you know that Linked Tunnels can have more than one output tunnel linked? For example: create a case structure with one input tunnel and two output tunnels. Click on the first output tunnel and link it to the input tunnel. Now, click on the second input tunnel and link it to the the input tunnel. Viola! Both output tunnels are now linked to the same input tunnel :)
