I've created a screen that uses numeric meters to display data. Each meter has its digital display visible so that the user can see the level accurately. I've modified the data format of the meter to 2-digit precision, and would like the digital display to have the same format, but there seems to be no way to do this. The digital display is locked at 6 significant figures, which will be confusing for my users. I know that this was possible in previous LabVIEW versions, but has somehow been lost for 8.6.1 and 2009.
I'm aware that I could do some "work-arounds" with strings, or replacing the digital displays with numeric indicators, but this is not acceptable. How can I modify the properties of the digital display?
Solved! Go to Solution.
on the property dialog, where you set the display format for the meter, you will find a selector to choose between "Numeric" (default value) and "digital display"...
For example, if you would use a fill slide, it would be possible to create a property node for the digital display precision (Create -> Property Node -> Display Format -> Precision). Maybe it is possible to set that not programatically too.
What indicator exactly are you using?
Edit: Well, it seems that the question is already answered anyway 🙂
