Style Control on large strings

Recommended Posts

Hi,

   I have a large string and I would like to update the colour of each word as it is typed. Using the Property nodes on the string to select a word, then update its colour, then return to cursor to it's previous position would be great if this could happen instantly, but property nodes can not be used when a sub VI is called as 'subroutine' priority. The end result is you can see the word flash breifly as it is highlighted and can cause the UI to jolt. This is undesirable.

    Does anyone know how I might better achieve this?

Many thanks, Alec

Defer panel updates while you are updating the string.

If you are manipulating the UI (or strings), you probably don't want to be using the subroutine priority.
