You can lock and unlock a front panel that a client views remotely so the client cannot or can change the values of the front panel controls.

Right-click anywhere on the front panel of the running VI and select Lock Control to lock a front panel that a client views remotely. When you lock a front panel that clients view remotely, LabVIEW queues any requests from clients to control the front panel.

You also can use the Remote Panel:Lock Control method to lock control of a remote front panel programmatically.

Right-click anywhere on the front panel of the running VI and select Unlock Control to allow a client viewing the front panel remotely to change the value of front panel controls. When you unlock a front panel that clients view remotely, LabVIEW grants control to the next client in the queue. If no clients are in the queue, the method unlocks the front panel.
