This package contains tools for designing user interfaces.
A first palette helps create special effects using transparency of front panel. Using them allows to quickly create fade-ins or outs using linear or exponential variation of the intensity.
A second palette contains VIs to calculate the position of GObjects for many purposes like alignment, snap, mouse follow, etc.
A third palette contains VIs to create dialog boxes based on class instances. A One-button base class and a two-button class are provided to be overloaded.
A fourth palette includes some VIs to move objects programmatically on the front panel, using a basic deceleration algorithm to provide an impression of a smooth movement.
The packaged VIs are all namespaced using a suffix “__lava_lib_ui_tools” which should not conflict with any of your own code.
- Front Panel Transparency (Fade In & Fade Out)
- Utilities (Alignment, Snap)
- Dialog (OOP based, extensible)
- Engine (Beta) for object movement
This package is distributed on the LabVIEW Tools Network and can be installed directly in the addon folder of any LabVIEW version from 8.6 to now. The addon installs automatically under the LAVA palette of the addon submenu.
