Is anyone aware of a limitation on what the smallest possible FP size is? On LV 2017, I am under the impression that this is 116x41 on one windows machine, and 1x1 on a linux. Known issue, WM, or deserves a CAR?
The reason I'm asking: I'm fiddling with the cosmetics of an Xcontrol. I would have nothing against a larger transparent border, but when I webpublish the big FP using it, the large transparent border turns grey on the snap png.
ETA:, ah, https://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/How-to-set-front-panel-size-to-be-same-as-one-led/td-p/1565524
ETA2: ok, tried the snippet of that thread and get either no reduction or eloquent "Error 1 occurred at Property Node (arg 1) - Command requires GPIB Controller to be Controller-In-Charge" for tighter sizes.
I am trying to find a workaround the the missing possibility to set key focus in an array at a specific location by using X-Control.
I am struggling at the point that i manage the key focus in my X-Control to work, but I cannot set to other control. it always stay at the same one...
Is anyone manage to enable key focus on specific element of a X-Control?
I am trying to make a picture controler on my interface. I can drag and zoom my picture but my zoom is too bad ....
My picture is big and I didn't find the way to make a zoom on the center of my indicator image with the zoomfactor. All my calculate tries failed and my reseachs on the web failed ...
I am not really sure if i am clear but I can answer your questions.

I'm writing some LabVIEW software to store and display data from a variety of data sources, mostly through an NI DAQ board.
I'm displaying the data (stored in an SQLite database) on an XYGraph.
I would like to have a toggle-able, probably semi-transparent box listing each of the plots on the graph, with the option to turn the plots on/off by clicking, along with some grouping of similar plots (all temperature measurements, or all measurements from experiment #5, etc).
The Bloomy post at http://www.ni.com/newsletter/51918/en/ gives me semi-transparent panels pretty easily (in fact, this can conceivably be tri-state, since I have on, off and invisible :D)
I've already programmed a simple multi-column listbox for something else in this project that switches symbols and handles double-click, mouse up/down, etc, so I could maybe use a modified version of that to hold my plots.
I have never successfully used an XControl for anything, but when I come to problems involving collections of strange custom controls, I always think, is this what an XControl is for?
So, do I need an XControl here? Or will I just be diving into another rabbit-hole leading to yet another unsuccessful XControl attempt? If so, what should I be using instead?
In case it matters, the bulk of the project uses NI's Actor Framework to handle separate sections, and the graph is inside a subpanel, inside another subpanel.
Some images of current pieces. The parent holds the scrollbar, and my current no-op (except show/hide on the little menu button bottom left) overlay (not at all transparent). The child holds the actual graph, and an ugly global variable mean (I needed it quickly for a colleague's use...). The child is embedded in a subpanel of the parent (above the scrollbar) and the parent is embedded in a subpanel of the MainUI's 'Actor Core.vi'.
I used xcontrol many years back. I am trying to refresh my knowledge. I tried with a simple keypad . Button 1 button 2 and button 3. Data is string.
When Button 1 is pressed string goes 1. Button 2 - string goes 2, etc.
For button 1, 2, 3 value change events, i have modified the data and so i have made the action cluster -> Data changed as True. But it looks like it is not working.
What basics am i missing. Please help.
