Programmatically reordering controls visually (forward & back) on front panel

Have you looked at "highlighting" the control?

 

See here for my Nugget on Invoke node Highlight.

Very cool function! I might find use for that later.

 

That doesn't fix my problem, however.

Hi pangngnc 

 

I find this thread most interesting.

 

I have a VI that sets the properties of a selected list of controls on my front panel which DO overlap. (changes some to hidden and some to not hidden).

Depending on which Control I activate last, depends on what I can do...

e.g. If I have a large string control with a small one sitting on top of it and I want to hide the large one. I MUST hide the large one first before making the small one visible and editable, otherwise although the large one is hidden, it blocks access th the small one and I cannot edit the small one.

 

I have had to be very careful with front panel manuipulations because of this feature - it could be used as an alternative was of locking access to a control.

 

In my experience therefore, the last control edited (that is not a container) is the topmost control on the front panel.

 

This is using LabVIEW 8.6.1

First of all, try to understand the question. Even if you understand it, that doesn't mean you have appropriate answer. Be committed to the fact that answering kind of is something that needs background in the subject of question. So, uttering voice, text, etc doesn't mean answering. We are not playing games.

Mahyar,

You've posted to an old thread and your comments make no sense. It's just spam.

The Z-order of controls can only be changed when a VI is in edit mode.

If you force a change while a VI is running. LV crashes.

What about yours dennis? Did you have any obligation to respond?

 

I don't care it is old or new, because whenever I search in the internet I confront with that damn answer. That really bugs!

Answering is not that much easy as you think. Answering must be based on knowledge, wisdom, etc. It is an illusion that giving answer is as easy as drinking water.

Mahyar,

 

Did you actually read my response 5 years ago? it is the closest that anyone seems to have come to providing an answer and the code still works nicely in LV2013 SP1 (havent checked 2014 yet!)

The order in which you change the VI control state seems to affect to order of the VI on th FP. - Have a play! (as previously mentioned you need to edit the VI when it is not running from another VI!) Play with the code and understand it!

Mayhar,

You did not post a question and your comments are still nonsense. What sort of game are you trying to play?

Based on your two messages, it sounds like you must be dying of thirst.
