how do I modify the palette to go straight to the Programming menu in LV8.5?

Go to solution

I've seen variations of this question asked, but I'm not seeing the answer I'd like to see.


On the back panel, I want to right-click and see everything available in the "Programming" submenu.  (Kinda like it used to be in the old days of LV.)  I don't want to right-click and choose "Programming" -- I want to right-click and see "Structures", "Array", "Class, Cluster, & Variant", ...


I've seen other posts which explain how to pin the menu and select Change Visible Categories.  I can make it so that "Programming" is the only icon when I first right-click, but that's not what I'm trying to do -- I want to see everything in "Programming" the first time I right click.


I'd also like to do the same thing on the front panel -- jump straight to the Modern subpanel.


Help?  Thanks.

When I right-click I see the Programming palette already shown. I have all categories visible and I also have the "Format" set to "Category (Icons and Text)" in the LabVIEW Options (also accessible from the "View This Palette As" menu item when pinned. I don't recall doing anything beyond that.

According to NI. "LabVIEW displays two windows: the front panel window and the block diagram window."  Quoted from 'Getting started with LabVIEW' page 1-4. Smiley Wink
