Short Name: FP.Minimum Size

Requires: Base Development System

Class: VI Properties

To Use: Create a property.

Minimum size of the front panel window in pixels. If Front Panel Window:Resizable is TRUE, the user cannot resize the front panel smaller than the width and height you wire to this property.

You cannot size the window smaller than one pixel in either dimension. If you set a pane to a size at which the scroll bars encroach on the content area's minimum size, LabVIEW hides the scroll bars. When you size the pane larger, the scroll bars appear again. For single-pane front panels, minimum size refers to the content area of that pane, not including the scroll bars. For multi-pane front panels, minimum size refers to the entire front panel, including any visible scroll bars.

This property is similar to the Minimum Panel Size section of the Window Size page of the VI Properties dialog box.
