Resize text in VI

I am designing a front panel in which some TEXT also there.

 

where my application runs in other computer my windown resizes but not my text. I read the help but it say text doesnt resize as its font is fixed.

 

Is there no way to resize the text as per window size?

Hi Ranjeet,

 

you can use property nodes to apply a different font/fontsize to your text depending on window size.

You just have to do some real programming! Thank God LabVIEW is a programming language… 🙂

Hi Ranjeet,

 

you should have mentioned "decorations" before!

 

You could get a reference on your decoration and you could change the size of the decoration, but that will not scale your font.

To do so you have to use a string indicator - I suggest to use the simple classic one as it is easiest to set to transparent…

How can I get reference for my decoration? 

 

What I used is decoration?

Hi Ranjeet,

 

a free label is a decoration - like frames, lines, arrows too!

Guess why you find them all in the "decorations" palette…

 

How to get references:

(I use the German LV version, so "GestElem[]" is "Decorations[]".)
