In version 7.1 (maybe not from 8.2) You can bring up a property node for the VI, there is a property called "FP.Origin" wire a constant (0,0).
To get this property, drop the property node on your block diagram. Set the property node for a VI Class: Right Click node | Select Class | VI Server | VI . Set the property to "FP Window", right click the property node, select Properties | Front Panel Window | xxxxx.... wait FP.Origin does not appear in 8.2, It may be in version 7.1 still. Maybe you can use "Panel Bounds" instead, give it a try.
I'm converting some LV code from 8.2.1 to 2013.
The property FP.Origin is no longer supperted and I know that I can use Pane|Origin instead, but only for the VI the property is in.
I want to get or set the origin for VI I call , but I can't find a method or property to do that in 2013.
The Pane|Origin property don't have a VI reference terminal!
How do I do it then?
Right-click on a scroll bar of your VI's front panel. You can then go to Create->Reference. You now have a reference to your pane that you can pass around.
Or, if you are just passing around the VI reference, we can go through some more fun.
