Disable Front Panel

Go to solution

I have a main front panel with a menubar.  When I select an option from the menubar, it opens another window with configuration settings.  The problem that I want to solve is that when the configuration window is open, the main front panel is locked out, but is still active.  If you click on one of the controls in the main window, it won't execute right away, but will execute as soon as the configuration settings window is closed.  I don't want that behavior, I want the main front panel to be completely disabled until the config settings window is closed.  Isn't there a way to disable the entire main panel without disabling each of the controls individually?  It looks like I could hide it, but I don't really want to do that.

It sounds like the "other window" is another VI and that you want to set that to be modal in its window settings.
