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.

Example

(Real-Time Module) You cannot use these VIs in VIs that run on RT targets.
