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 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.

The QControl Toolkit by Q Software Innovations is an object-oriented and extensible alternative to XControls. Use the QControl Toolkit framework and the QControl Creation Wizard to create QControl Classes and receive the benefits of XControls without the headaches. Take advantage of easy UI logic code reuse. Encapsulate and decouple the UI logic away from the business logic of the main application and from the UI skin. Use wherever the VI Server and LabVIEW object-oriented programming are allowed. Easily extend the capabilities of current LabVIEW controls through access to all properties available at run time. And easily use the toolkit with more complex frameworks like the Actor Framework or other plugin architectures where LabVIEW libraries and packed project libraries are used and where XControls can behave unpredictably.
Check it out now on the NI Tools Network here.
I also started a thread on the NI Community: UI Interest Group page, here.
