Short Name: Custom Item Symbols.Set Symbol Array

Requires: Base Development System

Class: MulticolumnListbox Methods

To Use: Create a method.

Sets the images of all item symbols.

If you want to use a picture to set the symbols, use the Picture to Pixmap VI to convert the data to an image data cluster before using this method. The image clusters you wire to this method are similar to the image data input of the Write JPEG File, Write PNG File, and Write BMP File VIs.


Data typeNameRequiredDescription
SymbolsYesAn array of clusters that describe the images you want to use for the item symbols. Images that are less than or equal to 16 × 16 pixels appear as their actual size. If you use an image that is larger than 16 × 16 pixels, LabVIEW shrinks the image to 16 × 16 pixels before displaying it as a tree control item symbol.
