Complete the following steps to set all front panel objects to scale automatically when the front panel window resizes.

  1. Select File»VI Properties to display the VI Properties dialog box.
  2. Select Window Size from the Category pull-down menu.
  3. Place a checkmark in the Scale all objects on front panel as the window resizes checkbox.
Note  LabVIEW disables this option when you add a splitter bar to the front panel. You must configure the panes individually by right-clicking the scroll bar of the pane and selecting Pane Sizing»Scale all Objects with Pane from the shortcut menu.
  1. Click the OK button to save the changes. After you save the changes, resizing the front panel causes all front panel objects to resize and reposition themselves relative to their original locations.

If you select Scale all objects on front panel as the window resizes and then attempt to set a single object to scale, a dialog box appears that prompts you to select between setting automatic scaling for one particular object or all front panel objects.

You also can use the Set Scaling Mode method to set all front panel objects to scale programmatically.
