User defined glyphs in icon editorTo create user defined glyphs in the icon editor the Windows documentation states the correct place for the .png files is under the \LabVIEW Data\Glyphs\. Using 32-bit LabVIEW 2016 with OpenSuse Leap 42.3 the location should IMHO be ~/natinst/LabVIEW Data/Glyphs but this does not seem to work. I have tested that the glyph files can be loaded from wherever, so the file format is correct, but I would like LabVIEW to load these to the Glyphs menu in Icon editor. Refresh does not help. I'm thinking the glyph files are probably in incorrect folder. Has anyone managed to accomplish this, and could you give me a hand with configuring this?
customize existing VI icon programmatically
peterp posted a topic in User InterfaceHi, We're about to re-structure our VI source tree and therefore I'm looking for a way to automatically edit/change the VI icons as well. To do so, I want to open all VI's and change the icon text as well as add a new icon layer (on top) and then save this VI (perhaps also rename it, move it to another location ...) The only problem I have - I can (with help of Icon editor API) open the existing VI, get the icon data (separate entries for text, different layers, ...) and adjust them to new informations/texts/icon layers. But it is not possible to write back these changes to existing VI, I can only create a new VI with this data. Or I can overwrite any old icon settings by passing a new icon, loosing all different icon layers and separate texts. Is there any way to edit an existing VI Icon without loosing the existing icon texts/layers? I even tried to open the original icon editor via script and do the edits with "SendInput" remote control of it's user interface. But didn't find a way to open the icon editor on first hand :-( So any ideas highly appreciated! Peter
