Retain Default Data Type of Input Terminal in VI

Originally, I asked this query on NI discussion forum Retain Default Data Type of Input Terminal in VI . Thanks @GerdW and @crossrulz to encourage me to share this on IdeaExchange. I need such functionality in one of my project.  


When I take Open VI Reference function and create a constant for Option input terminal it shows Numeric constant with HEX radix (Default). So to add same functionality in I put numeric control on front panel with display format set to HEX. But when creating a constant to this input terminal the default data type is DEC and does not show HEX radix likewise in Open VI Reference function. I also tried by making Numeric control strict typedef but didn't work. So how to do this?

Below are the screenshots for same.
