In this lesson, you will learn how to customize palette views.

You can customize the Controls and Functions palettes to add VIs and controls to the palettes, hide VIs and functions, or rearrange the built-inpalettes to make the VIs and functions you use frequently more accessible.

Adding vis and controls to the user library and the instrument library

The simplest method for adding VIs and controls to the Controls and Functions palettes is to save them in the labview\user.lib directory. When you restart LabVIEW, the Functions>>Express User Libraries and Controls>>Express User Controls palettes contain subpalettes for each directory, VI library( .llb ), or menu ( .mnu ) file in the labview\user.lib directory, and icons for each file in the labview\user.lib directory. After you add files to or remove files from specific directories,LabVIEW automatically updates the palettes when you restart LabVIEW.

The Functions>>All Functions>>Instrument I/O palette corresponds to the labview\instr.lib directory. Save instrument drivers in this directory to add them to the Functions palette.

When you add VIs or controls to the Controls and Functions palettes using this method, you cannot set the name of each subpalette or the exact location of theVIs or controls on the palettes.

Creating and editing custom palette views

To control the name of each subpalette and the exact location of the VIs and controls you add to the Controls and Functions palettes, you must create a custom palette view. LabVIEW includes two built-in paletteviews-- Express and Advanced . Select Tools>>Advanced>>Edit Palette Views to create or edit custom palette views.

You cannot edit a built-in palette view.

Refer to the LabVIEW User Manual and the LabVIEW Help for more information about palette views.

Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
