»View Product Info

You can use splitter bars, such as toolbars, or status bars to create professional user interfaces in the front panel window. You can add a splitter bar to a front panel that already has controls on it, or you can add a splitter bar to the front panel window of a new, blank VI. Complete the following steps to add a splitter bar to the front panel window and create multiple panes.

  1. Create a new VI or open an existing one.
  2. Select Horizontal Splitter Bar or Vertical Splitter Bar from the Containers palette.
  3. Add the splitter bar to the front panel window where you want it to appear. As you drag the splitter bar to the position you want, a dashed line indicates the position of the splitter bar on the pane. If the dashed line is red, the alignment grid is enabled.
  4. Two scrollable panes appear in the front panel window.

Refer to the Resizable Panel with Splitter Bars VI in the labview\examples\Controls and Indicators\Containers directory for an example of using splitter bars and creating panes.
