Attaching type def to fp controls

I have a type def Enum which is defined using modern style which I don't want to change as it is compact ant tidy in clusters. I want t use the same typedef in a silver style front panel control is there any way I can attach the typedef to the control

Hi 6829,


Unfortunately you cannot change the style of a particular insance of the type def.

An alternative, while not ideal, might be to copy your type def to create a new, second one, and change the appearance of that. The advangage is that by doing it this way (right click>replace>etc.), the values will be the same, the disadvantage is that you will have two .ctl files which you will need to update should you want to add/remove cases from the enum.
