    Well, I've attached some VI's with what I think are the splitter thing you're asking for, but it could be tricky to get it into a new VI for a similar problem to what I originally posted this thread about—except this time, while you don't need to open the context menu to copy/paste, you can't drag a box to copy a splitter, and also you can't put a splitter in a .ctl. (Well I actually managed to do so by hacking, but it didn't actually work to let you place it.) The only way I know of to copy the splitters out of these VI's are with scripting, using the "Move" method. Here you go though, in case you want to try. Oh, also, you can send me the VI you have and I'll probably be able to mod the splitters for you. Can you describe in more detail what you wanted with the array? Horiz Splitter.vi Vert Splitter.vi

    Here is a small and borderless picture frame, along with smaller array. https://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/One-pixel-frame-for-picture-control/m-p/3716581#M1046089

    Yeah mine were a little more obvious that an xcontrol was really the only elegant half-way decent solution. One was a string control with markup and the other was a tab control that works like the native one should. So it was really about encapsulation.

    You can also use Quick Drop Replace to replace multiple items at once. Select all the controls you want to replace > Ctrl-Space > Type name of new item > Ctrl-P to replace them all.

UIs, ok, if you really like silver controls then by all means, but theres no point to changing subVIs and...its irritating. also, there are more attractive packages out there for UI. A reasonable but by no means complete starting point is here: https://forums.ni.com/t5/UI-Interest-Group-Discussions/bd-p/7116 For example drjdp's flatline controls (which is currently post number 2 in that link) are nice.
