Rev 3 Update:
Replaced "Splitterosition" details with "Splitterplitter Position"
I also looked into adding layers to the document that can be used to show or hide groups of dimensions to make it easier to read, but I don't have a license for any of the Adobe applications that would be able to do this.
Rev 2 Update:
Added a page for window/panel/pane dimensioning in a multi-pane VI.
Fixed several errors.
Changed visual style to (hopefully) make it more digestible.
I don't often need to think about the dirty details of object dimensioning and positioning on the front panel of a VI, but when I do, the task can really derail my productivity. I decided to put together a set of diagrams that explain all the dimensioning properties of windows, panels, panes, splitters, objects, etc. Note that some of these properties can only be accessed when VI Scripting is enabled. You normally shouldn't need to use all of them, but if you do, it's nice to know what they mean.
I'd love to hear feedback on making this document better. I intend to keep revising it and posting the updates for general public use until something like this makes its way into the LabVIEW Help file.
