If you enable front panel scaling in the Facade VI, the controls that make up the appearance of the XControl automatically resize when the XControl resizes. Complete the following steps to enable scaling of the front panel in the Facade VI.
|Note If the Facade VI has multiple panes, you must complete these steps for each pane.|
Alternatively, you can handle the Panel Resize event in the Event structure in the Facade VI. When the XControl is resized, LabVIEW calls the Facade VI with a Panel Resize event. In response to the event, you can move and resize each control individually that makes up the appearance of the XControl. Using the Panel Resize event is useful because you have more flexibility when you resize; however, it requires more coding.
Complete the following steps to configure the Event structure in the Facade VI to handle the Panel Resize event.
|Note If the XControl must have a fixed size, disable resizing on the front panel of the Facade VI. Remove the checkmark from the Allow user to resize window checkbox in the Customize Window Appearance dialog box to disable resizing.
If the XControl must have a minimum size, specify the minimum size for the Facade VI. Enter width and height values for the Minimum Panel Size option of the Window Size page of the VI Properties dialog box.
