Searching by Object Name

If you know the name of the palette object for which you are searching, use the Quick Drop dialog box to quickly add the object to the block diagram or front panel window. Use one of the following keyboard shortcuts to display the Quick Drop dialog box:

  • (Windows) Press the <Ctrl-Space> keys.
  • (macOS) Press the <Command-Shift-Space> keys.
  • (Linux) Press the <Alt–Space> keys.
  • On Chinese keyboards, press the <Ctrl-Shift-Space> keys.
Tip Tip  You can speed up the initial launch of the Quick Drop dialog box by enabling the Load palettes during launch radio button on the Controls/Functions Palette page of the Options dialog box. Selecting to load the palettes while LabVIEW launches might slow down the launching of LabVIEW slightly.

Searching by Functionality

If you do not know the name of the palette object for which you are searching, you can:

  • Search by keyword with the application-wide search
  • Browse the Controls or Functions palettes to locate the object
