Save your ring as a Custom Control (Advanced->Customize then simply save to a .ctl file). Then run the code in the following snippet (I do not make my hacks user friendly so be sure to browse to the paths before running). All of the images are exported into the folder you specify.
Could you please save it to a Labview8.5.1 vi? I am using Labview 8.5.1 and couldn't open your vi.
Thanks a lot for helping and I really appreciate it.
I was thinking that you could extract part of the front panel to get the image, convert it to png and repeat for each item in the ring.
It gets ugly if I leave the Increment/Decrement button visible but that can be overcome.
I got rid of that and added a small fix since it turns out there are (at least) two different ways that the images are stored and I forgot that I typically ditch that VI anyway since it does not handle transparency. VI attached in 8.5, changes shown here:
If you attach your .ctl file I could verify that it works as well.
Thanks a lot, everyone.
It works and I got all those transparent png images.
I appreciate your help and have a good day.
