LabVIEW can maintain its front panel window proportions relative to the resolution of the monitor. When you set a VI to maintain window proportions, the percentage of the screen the front panel window uses stays the same regardless of the user's screen resolution.

Complete the following steps to maintain front panel window proportions relative to screen resolution.

  1. Select File»VI Properties to display the VI Properties dialog box.
  2. Select Window Size from the Category pull-down menu at the top of the VI Properties dialog box.
  3. Place a checkmark in the Maintain proportions of window for different monitor resolutions checkbox.
  4. Click the OK button to save the changes.

Selecting this option maintains only window proportions. To make front panel objects maintain proportions, you also must place a checkmark in the Scale all objects on front panel as the window resizes checkbox.

You also can use the Keep Window Proportions property to maintain front panel window proportions relative to screen resolution programmatically.
