It isn't possible to do this yet. You should use regular panel
printing when you want pictures of controls and indicators.
Panel printing can be controlled by using either the VI server,
the LV4.x VI Control VIs, or the Print at Completion VI Option.

One important thing to remember though when printing a front panel is that
LabVIEW (still) won't update the contents of a VI's front panel for printing
unless the front panel is actually open. It can be minimized or in the
background, but it has to be open.

To work around this "feature" which has persisted for several revisions of
LabVIEW, I have written a VI that first checks to see if the print vi is open.
If it is it goes ahead and prints it. If it isn't open it opens it and
immediately brings the original screen back to the front. The result is a
momentary flash the first time a user prints something, but is you want graphs
it's the best you can do right now.

If you want a copy of the VI (in lv5.1) give me a shout...

Mike...

PS: Did I mention LabVIE
W has exibited this behavior for some time? Sure would
be nice of it got fixed (hint, hint, hint)...
