I haven't seen your post before today. I'll work on it, hopefully this week-end.


Can You tell me that How you create the image file to create such control. ?

It really work for me.



Hi Prabhakant,

you can install the "Control Class add-on" and it gives you an API for doing what you want. There's also a small program you can launch from the Tools menu that gives you an interface for it.

There are some videos in the discussion thread.

Hey Ton,

I made a quick fix VI. It should move the boolean text to thye top right corner, outside of the control. Also, it will unlock the boolean text so you can move it.

It will correct the whole VistaStyle Buttons hierarchy in the UI Tools folder.

Most likely, I will not have time to make the modification to the set and rebuild the package during the week-end...

Hello François,

I have issues with UI tools expansion packs.

The controls don't show up in the editor.

I see the issue in LV 2011 and LV 2012

This are my installed packages


Here's how it looks:


Debugging shows that:


should point to:

<user.lib>\_LavaCR\UI Tools\

Attached is a fix for this.
