I would like to use a background image in my workspace in VeriStand but ran into a problem. The image is located in a background vi, however this is always placed "on top" of all other controls and indicators in the workspace once selected.
The approach to solve this has been to configure an "Mouse Up" event in the background vi and in this even configure the user32.dll to control the z-stack order of the child windows (all controls and indicators) in VeriStand.
I have looked at other examples that using the user32.dll to control child windows in other programs (like excel) but when I try to inplement this in my vi and use it in VeriStand I do not get it to work. Does anyone knows if it should be possibel to configure the z-stack order of the child windows in VeriStand workspace using the user32.dll?
The problem with including a background image in the workspace has been, for this specific application, been solved, by using the Right-Click Add-On (http://www.ni.com/white-paper/11123/en). By including a background in the VI and then put all the necessary controls and indicators on top of the image in one single vi.
