Short Name: Splitter Position

Requires: Base Development System

Class: Splitter Properties

To Use: Create a property.

Controls the position of the splitter. If the splitter is vertical, the position is the horizontal coordinate of the left of the splitter. If the splitter is horizontal, the position is the vertical coordinate of the top of the splitter.

Wiring a value to this property positions the splitter at the new location as if you had moved the splitter by hand. If the new position violates the minimum size of any pane, LabVIEW returns an error and the splitter does not move. This property is similar to dragging the splitter bar to the front panel position you want.
