Thanks! It is a small utility program and I don't want to build a installer. It will be distributed as a standalone exectuable. So it is why I prefer to bundle everything in the executable.
If your utility is to be installed on a computer with no LV on it, you will still need to create an installer to get the LV runtime engine installed.
Good points Mike. I have to run the pics through GIMP to crop and scale anyway so I don't know why I didn't think to save them as PNG which I prefer as well.
If you want to use a diagram I’ve found that wmf format is better than either jpeg or png, they resize much better. Design or CAD programs usually allow you to export your drawing as a wmf.
You don’t need a picture control, just go to Edit and Import Picture to Clipboard and select the image file. Now paste directly onto your front panel. I often use in the background of a cluster to produce a mimic display. Some of the large system diagrams can show over 100 signals, updating in real time.
We have LV runtime engine already installed by another program.
Ian thanks for the tip!
