IMAQ Create Image Data Type not functioning



I seem to have a n issue with IMAQ create when trying to change the data type of a displayed image. I create a constant for the image type in the IMAQ create block and choose say Grayscale (U8). However when I load a RGB file using the IMAQ Read File 2, the image is displayed as RGB and not as Grayscale (U8) as I would think. It seems that selecting any of the other data types in the list has no effect on the displayed image on the block diagram. Is there a setting I'm missing?

Ah! Nevermind, just figured out to set the "use file path image type" in the IMAQ Read File 2 to False
