Most applications have an About dialog box that displays general information about the application and the user or company that designed it. You can create a VI that LabVIEW runs when a user selects Help»About to display information about the stand-alone application you create. After the VI runs, LabVIEW closes the dialog box.
You can have only one About VI per application. If you do not supply an About VI, LabVIEW displays a default dialog box similar to the dialog box that appears in the LabVIEW development system when you select Help»About.
Complete the following steps to create an About VI and include it in a stand-alone application.
|Note The front panel window must include a National Instruments copyright notice. Refer to the National Instruments Software License Agreement located on the LabVIEW DVD or CD for more information about the requirements for any About dialog box you create for a LabVIEW application.|
|Tip You can create a localized name to use for the About VI. Select File»VI Properties and then select Window Appearance from the Category pull-down menu. Remove the checkmark from Same as VI Name checkbox and enter a new name for the About VI in Window title field. The localized name you enter becomes the new help menu item name that users select to run the About VI.|
