»View Product Info

Short Name: FP.PanelBounds

Requires: Base Development System

Class: VI Properties

To Use: Create a property.

The four elements in the cluster are the top, left, bottom, and right values of the interior portion of the front panel, not including the scroll bars, title bar, menu bar, and toolbar. The cluster elements are in global screen coordinates, which are the numbers that refer to coordinates within a computer monitor's screen (rather than an open window).

You can set this property only for VIs with open front panels. If you do not want the VI for which you want to set this property to appear to users, use the Hidden state of the Front Panel Window:State property to hide the front panel of the VI.

When you read this property, LabVIEW returns the front panel bounds of the VI. If the front panel of the VI is not open, LabVIEW returns the front panel bounds of the VI in the position it was last saved. The front panel bounds adjust if you change the size or placement of objects in the front panel. Dynamic changes in data can occur if you alter bound front panel objects.

If you load the VI in a subpanel control, this property is read only.
