Dialog VI needs a banner

Solved!
Go to solution

I have a User dialog VI that needs a banner across the top in a large font. Is there a way to do this without a control or indicator? 

 

It would be great if I could make a silk screen and slap it across the page diagonally that says "No Production" but a simple banner at the top in red will do. The label in the decorations group is too small and seems to have no size/color adjustment properties.

 

Thanks,

Use a free label. Set the font, size and color from the Font menu in the tool bar.

Both the decorations label and free text on the front panel can be any size.  It's not limited to the font sizes you see in the toolbar.  You just have to select the text and do a cntl+=.  It will get as big as you want.  As far as making it diagonal and semi-transparent, I'm afraid I can't think of an easy way.

One option is to use something like PowerPoint to create some large red text at a 315 degree angle and save it as a PNG.  You can drag the PNG to the FP to make it a background image.  When you scale the FP and image to match, set the image to scale with pane.  Now you have a kind of watermark on your FP.
