In addition to the built-in palette categories, you can create other categories to organize palette items. Complete the following steps to add a category to the top level of the Controls or Functions palette.
- Create a new folder for the category you want to create in the labview\menus\Controls directory for the Controls palette or the labview\menus\Categories directory for the Functions palette.
- Add items that you want to include in the category to the new folder. Items for a category on the Functions palette can include VIs, functions, LLBs, and .mnu files. Items for a category on the Controls palette can include controls and .mnu files.
|Note Do not copy a dir.mnu file into the category folder. When you add a category, LabVIEW creates a dir.mnu file, if needed.|
- Restart LabVIEW. LabVIEW updates the palettes to contain the categories you added.
