Currently there is a method for setting the control value of another VI via the Control Value Set Method. But there is no set with signaling method which allows control of VI's which react to changes on front panel controls. This makes it hard to automate VI's that are using front panel control events. There is a tedious work around to get references to control on the front panel and then use value signaling method . It would be very useful to just have one additonal method that does the signaling in additon to setting the value of the control.
