LabVIEW includes several options you can use to customize the window appearance, window position, and window size for VIs. These options are useful when distributing VIs as stand-alone applications.

Complete the following steps to customize window appearance and window size.

  1. Select File»VI Properties to display the VI Properties dialog box.
  2. Select Window Appearance, Window Size, or Window Run-Time Position from the Category pull-down menu.
  3. Select the appropriate window options.
  4. In the Window Appearance page, click the Customize button to display the Customize Window Appearance dialog box. In this dialog box, you can customize options such as whether the title bar or menu bar appears, whether the user can close or minimize the window, whether shortcut menus appear at run time, and more.
Note  If you remove the checkmarks from the Show toolbar when running, Show Abort button, and Allow user to close window checkboxes, consider adding a stop button to the front panel so the user can stop the VI.

You also can use the Front Panel Window and Tool Bar properties and Front Panel methods to customize the window appearance and window size programmatically. You also can use the Front Panel:Run-Time Position methods to customize the run-time front panel window position and size programmatically.
