Starting with LabVIEW 6.1, you can place animated GIF images on front panels. You also can customize a control by replacing some parts of controls with animated images. This example shows three visually interesting controls. No programmatic support for controlling the GIF animation exists, so you cannot synchronize or change GIFs based on the value of the control. However, several controls in the example display different custom controls for different values, such as the control that shows the change between TOO HIGH and JUST RIGHT.
