You can give Kudos to both 😉

 

Sometimes it's very useful to modify a front-panel decoration element programatically. E.g. moving it, changing its size, color or visability. All of those properties do already exist but it's hard to reach them (if your read the other idea, you'll see that it is even imposible for a specific element).

What I'd like to have is a right-click-menu-entry "create property node" (same for method node). The result shall be a property node appearing in the block diagram which is linked directly to the decoration element.
