How to configure "About" tab/selection when running LabVIEW program

Go to solution



When I run my main LabVIEW VI, there is this "About" selection that when pressed, nothing happens.


How do I configure this tab so when clicked, another subVI or text blurb opens to state what this project is about?



Theory is when you know everything but nothing works.
Practice is when everything works but no one knows why.
When I work, theory and practice are combined: nothing works and I don't know why.

Depends how that VI was built. Most likely you have a custom menu and there should be an event structure case for the according custom menu item.


Alternatively you can also use the default About application menu APP_ABOUT in your custom menu. If you then add a VI that has the name "About <something>" to your exe build, LabVIEW will actually show this VI instead of its own default About  dialog.


But I would recommend to just do it through a custom menu item and add an according case in your event structure.
