Front Panel with Multiple Windows

Is it possible to have multiple front panel windows that all access the same top level code?  I have worked with dialog sub VI's before, but these are only accessible when their code is running.  Is there a way to have a second window appear with extra controls and indicators that you can view and click as they autoupdate and your top level code is still running?

Yes. You will have to use some sort of asynchronous signalling (UDEs, queues, notifiers, globals, etc) to pass data and control between the VIs that are running in parallel.
