Yes, it is possible.

I suggest you take a look at Mark Balla's Icon Editor on the LAVA code repository, it is really great and it will show you how you can write text on a VI's icon programmatically.

Here's the method that can set the icon :


Now on : how to generate the image data cluster from the text you want to put on the icon, I let you take a look into the code.

Hope this helps
