How to unplace an item without deleting it?

Solved!
Go to solution

I have a graph on my panel. I have placed the graph in my diagram. Now I want to remove it. The only way I can see is to delete it from the diagram. That deletes it from the panel.

 

How does one remove an object from the panel or diagram without deleting it?

It sounds like you want to hide it. Place a Property node of the graph and set the Visibility property to False.

No, I don't want to hide the control on the panel. I want to remove the control from the diagram without deleting it. I want to remove what is circled in red without deleting them on the panel.

This makes absolutely no sense. Why would you want a control or indicator on the front panel that you are not using?

I understand what you are saying. I DO want to work with these eventually. At this point though I want to remove them and work with them later. I wrongly added it to the area that I added it. I want to remove it to clear my diagram while I work on some other aspects.

If you simply move the control terminals off-center, they will not clutter your code.

Otherwise, copy controls and related code to a spare vi before removing them from your current one (controls and terminals, of course).

I don't have NXG installed right now, but you should be able to move the terminals into the "holding" palette or whatever it is called.

As pincpanter said just move it to an area on your block diagram that you're not using. Moving the terminal on the block diagram won't have any impact on the control/indicator on the front panel.

You can rightclick the terminal and select "Move to Unplaced Items" where you can later pick it up again in the pallette.
