Solved!

Hello,

 

is it possible to create drop down filter menu, something similar like in excel?

So you are able to select wanted content.

Yes.

 

 

Spoiler

You can create right-click menus at runtime.

Or you can use a listbox to show the list of options and use the item symbol to show the checkmark.

What have YOU tried and where are YOU stuck?

Please provide your example VIs!  (Keep in mind many of us prefer LabVIEW 2021 or older. I prefer LabVIEW2019.)

Best regards,
GerdW

Hello,

 

there is no some example to share.

I followed your instruction:

''Or you can use a checkbox to show the list of options and use the item symbol to show the checkbox.''

So i added symbols, but as can see, this is just symbols.

So, this could work, when take checkbox coordinate, check if it is mouse is on checkbox position, and then using property node, change symbol somehow.

Or i missed something.

On a listbox you can use events to determine the mouse position (or the item you are working with). Then you can add code to change the item symbol as needed from "empty box" to "checked box" and vice versa.

(The same applies to trees or runtime menus.)

 

I never wrote you get all that for free: you always need some code to handle user interactions!

 

Just an example:
