Owning Palette: Dialog & User Interface VIs and Functions
Requires: Base Development System. This topic might not match its corresponding palette in LabVIEW depending on your operating system, licensed product(s), and target.
Use the Cursor VIs to change the appearance of the cursor on the front panel of a VI. For example, if the VI is acquiring or analyzing data and can accept no user input, you might want to change the cursor to an hourglass or watch cursor. After the VI finishes acquiring or analyzing data and can accept user input, you can change the cursor back to the default cursor.
(Real-Time Module) You cannot use these VIs in VIs that run on RT targets.
|Create Cursor From File||Returns a reference to a cursor in a cursor file.|
|Destroy Cursor||Closes a reference to a cursor and changes the cursor to the default cursor in any VIs using the reference.|
|Set Busy||Changes the appearance of the cursor on the front panel of a VI to the system busy cursor. You also can use this VI to disable the mouse and keyboard on the front panel.|
|Set Cursor||Changes the appearance of the cursor on the front panel of a VI. Wire data to the icon input to determine the polymorphic instance to use or manually select the instance.|
|Unset Busy||Changes the appearance of the cursor on the front panel of a VI from a busy cursor to the default LabVIEW cursor and enables the mouse on the front panel.|
Refer to the Cursor in the labview\examples\Dialog and User Interface directory for an example of using the Cursor VIs.
