You can create custom user interfaces by moving front panel control or indicator labels and captions to different positions around the front panel object. You also can move terminal and wire labels on the block diagram. After you move the label to the position you want, you can lock the label to the front panel or block diagram object. By locking the label to an object, you avoid losing the label position you select because when you move the label, the object also moves.
|Note You cannot lock labels to wires.|
