Open icon editor.

Hello All,

Is there any quick drop shortcut to open the Icon editor.

Re: Open icon editor.

There is not a keyboard shortcut to launch the icon editor that I know of. You could potentially write a Quick Drop Keyboard Shortcut to accomplish this.

This page describes how to create a Quick Drop Keyboard Shortcut:

As for the actual scripting code in your plugin, here's some code that uses the LabVIEW Icon API to launch the icon editor and update the icon of a VI:
