This VI hide the main user interface panel when the user is interacting with a subVI user interface
In many applications, it may be desirable to hide the main user interface panel when the user is interacting with a subVI user interface. Doing this can reduce clutter on the desktop and add focus to what the developer is trying to direct the user's attention to. The attached project implements a simple framework for hiding the main user interface panel when the user is interacting with a subVI user interface. The main purpose of this example is to demonstrate this functionality.
LabVIEW 2012 (or compatible)
