Hi all, I'm using "File path control" to chose file name. I don't want the user to write the path in the control directly (by typing) but only to choose the file via the button on the right. I can implement this behaviour with path indicator and button of course. But I belieave that it can be done more elegant - only disable the part with the string - not the whole "File path control". But how? I tried to customize the control but not success. Is it possible?
The way I've done it is to make the path part of the control tiny and hide it behind a string indicator. Then whenever the path control changes value (by pressing the Browse button), I populate the string indicator with the path value. Here's a sample VI demonstrating this method, saved in LabVIEW 8.0.
