Where exactly do you want to display these and on what? On a front panel? If you enter information into the documentation for a control/indicator then that information will displayed in the Context Help window if you have it open. You can also enter tip strip information.

There seems to be some relevant info here including a mention of balloon tips....

Let us know how you get on - this could be vary handy!

 

edit: another possible source is here. The download includes a vi which shows exactly how to do this - seems to work a treat.

The .NET solution was where I was going to point the OP as well, once it became a bit more clear what they were looking for. One additional note: you will have to configure the app to run as a service in order to appear in the system tray. Do a search, as this has been asked before. There's also a KB article on how to do this, as well as a complete example.

smercurio_fc,

 

Have you configured a LabVIEW app that uses the .NET system tray as a service?  Will the icon be shown in the tray when the user logs on?  I tried using the Task Scheduler to run my system tray LabVIEW app (not configured as a service) at system startup, but the icon did not show up in the tray when I logged on. I ended up having to set it to start when any user logs on, and delay the start for 30 seconds.  Not sure if I'm doing something wrong, or if the system tray already needs to be visible when the program starts up.

 

I sure wish NI would add service-creating capability into the Application Builder.  There is enough capability in LabVIEW now where the desire to configure apps as services will become more prevalent.

No, I haven't. Sorry.
