Key Focus doesn't work after running the program after the first time

Go to solution

Hey All,


When I run my program for the first time, it can focus on the string and I can start typing. Once I click enter it finishes the program. However once I run my program again, even tho the key focus black rectangle is still on the string, it doesn't allow me to type until I click on it. I tried the solution of bringing the window to the front but I am unable to solve this.



Thank you,

Using LabVIEW 2023 Q3, I am not seeing the behaviour you described. I can type straight away every time I run the VI.

Hey ZYOng,


I figured it out, I just had to set focus to the window as well by changing the window appearance to dialog and customize it to be modal.
