Blink Foreground and Background Colors

Go to solution



I changed Blink Foreground color to blue and Blink Background color to Yellow from Front Panel --> Tools --> Options --> Environment --> Colors. It works when I run the program in LabVIEW. However, after I built the program and run the executable file, the Blink Foreground color and Blink Background color changed back to default color, i.e. Blink Foreground color changed back to yellow and Blink background color changed back to red.


I'd appreciate it if you'd let me know how to change the Blink Foreground and Background colors in executable file. I am using LabVIEW 2015, Service Pack 1.


Thank you,

Hi Shijie,


those blink colors are stored in some keys in the LabVIEW.ini file. You find this INI file just next to the LabVIEW executable.


All you need to do is to copy those keys into the INI file of your own excutable. You should create such an INI file within your project and use it when building the exe: it's an "advanced" option in the BuildSpecs!

Best regards,
