Select Tools»Advanced»Edit Palette Set to display the Edit Controls and Functions Palette Set dialog box. Right-click the palette and select Insert»Subpalette from the shortcut menu to display this dialog box.

Use this dialog box to insert a new, empty subpalette in the Controls or Functions palette.

This dialog box includes the following components:

  • Create a new palette file—Creates a new, empty subpalette from a new palette file (.mnu).
  • Link to an existing palette file—Adds an existing subpalette with a palette file (.mnu) to the Controls or Functions palette. The subpalette automatically updates as you add files to the existing palette file.
  • Link to an LLB—Links the subpalette to an LLB (.llb). The subpalette automatically updates as you add files to the LLB.
  • Link to a directory—Creates a subpalette with entries for all the files in a directory and creates palette files (.mnu) in each subdirectory. Selecting this option also recursively creates subpalettes for each of the subdirectories, LLBs, or palette files in the directory. These subpalettes automatically update if you add new files to or remove files from the directories you selected. Right-click the subpalette and select Synchronize With Directory from the shortcut menu to enable or disable the automatic updating for a subpalette.
    Note  To make changes to a subpalette that links to a packed project library, make changes to the subpalette and rebuild the packed library to update those changes in the library.
  • Link to a palette file in a project library—Links the subpalette to a palette file in a LabVIEW project library. After you select a library, LabVIEW displays the Select Palette from Project Library File dialog box.
