Six months ago (before CoVID lock-down, when brain was functioning better), I created a "lean and mean" Front Panel with an Integer input, a String Input, and two Boolean Buttons. I just tried to re-create it (and make some new ones), but cannot figure out what Palette I used. It doesn't seem to be Modern, Classic, System, Silver, or NXG. I was using (and still am) LabVIEW 2019.
I'm not using the desktop PC, locked in my office at work (where I haven't been in about 5 months). Is there another Control Palette that I might have downloaded from VIPM? (This idea just popped into my head while composing this Post ...).

To elaborate in GredW's post. If you're asking about the numeric control specifically, that came from the "System" palette --> Numeric --> System --> System Spin Control(!!?). (Maybe all the other controls came from there, too?) My guess is that Windows controls include numeric controls with and without incr/decr buttons.

Son-of-a-gun -- it was the System Palette. I could have sworn I checked them all!
I was just about to post my own response, which was nowhere near as useful (but technically correct). I was going to preface it with a paraphrase of T.S. Eliot -- "Good Writers borrow, Great Writers steal" ...
Thanks to Subversion, I found a much older version of this code that included an unfamiliar Icon, which I deduced was the Prompt User Express VI (I dislike, and rarely use, Express VIs). Seeing this in my code, I vaguely recall taking the VI apart and
stealing borrowing pieces of the code (and the Controls) to make my own version.
Whew. I'm not going (completely) crazy, just a bit tired of not working with my colleagues ...
