You can replace a front panel object with a different control or indicator without losing the label, caption, and value you set for the object.

Complete the following steps to replace a front panel object.

  1. Right-click a front panel object.
  2. Select Replace from the shortcut menu to display a temporary version of the Controls palette.
  3. Select a control or indicator on the temporary Controls palette to replace the current front panel object.
Note  If you replace a control with an indicator, LabVIEW preserves the dataflow direction of the original object and does not change the control to an indicator. If you replace an indicator with a control, LabVIEW does not change the indicator to a control.

You also can replace a front panel object with another object from the clipboard.
