Use the default LabVIEW fonts and colors. LabVIEW replaces the built-in fonts with comparable font families on different platforms. If you select a different font, LabVIEW substitutes the closest match if the font is unavailable on a computer. LabVIEW handles colors similarly to fonts. If a color is not available on a computer, LabVIEW replaces it with the closest match. You also can use system colors to adapt the appearance of a front panel to the system colors of any computer that runs the VI.
Complete the following steps to change the font, size, and color of text.
|Note Changing the default font does not change the font of existing labels. It affects only those labels you create from that point on.|
Tip (Windows and Linux) To make labels transparent, use the Coloring tool and right-click the T in the color picker.|
(Mac OS) To make labels transparent, use the Coloring tool and <Control>-click the T in the color picker.
|Note (MathScript RT Module) LabVIEW discards color and style settings you apply to text in a MathScript Node when a type of script highlighting is enabled for the node.|
You also can use the Font property to set the font programmatically, the Justification property to get and set the justification of text programmatically, and the Text Colors property to change the foreground and background color of a text string programmatically.
