Icon Editor Source Files for LabVIEW 2016

Attached is the source code and project to create the LabVIEW 2016 icon editor.  To install the code, do the following:

  1. Rename <LabVIEW2016>\resource\plugins\lv_icon.lvlibp, the shipping icon editor, to lv_icon.lvlibp.ship to "hide" it.
  2. Archive <LabVIEW2016>\vi.lib\LabVIEW Icon API to preserve the shipping copy.  Use your archive program of choice (e.g. 7-Zip).
  3. Open the attached ZIP file and copy the two directories into your <LabVIEW2016> directory.  This installs the code into <LabVIEW2016>\resource\plugins\lv_icon.vi with associated support files.

If you have questions or run into issues, let us know in the comments.

Thank you Darren,


with this I could fix the issue with Icon editor fonts in OpenSUSE 43.2 with the shipped version of icon editor. The specifics are discussed in LAVA here:


Essentially the linux function that populates the font drop down list provides the list in incorrect format and needs to be fixed in order for the font configuration to work in at least OpenSUSE 43.2 and LabVIEW 2016 32-bit.
