Data typeNameRequiredDescription
TypeNoReturns whether the front panel is unchanged, centered, maximized, minimized, or has a custom setting.
PositionNoIndicates the top left coordinate of the front panel window position.
SizeNoIndicates the size of the window. For single-pane front panels, Size refers to the content area of that pane, not including the scroll bars. For multi-pane front panels, Size refers to the entire front panel, including any visible scroll bars. LabVIEW returns an error if you set the width or height to 0 or set the width or height less than the minimum window size.
MonitorNoSpecifies the monitor on which the front panel window appears, if you have multiple monitors. The value 0 is the primary monitor and is the default value. If you specify a value other than 0, the VI runs on that monitor. If you specify a monitor number greater than the number of monitors on the system, or if you specify a negative number, LabVIEW returns an error. The monitor number corresponds to the video card you plug the monitor in to.
