Is it possible to output a string and numeric to the front panel without the border around it?

Solved!
Go to solution

I know I can change the border around a string or numeric output to the screen by using Modern or Classic, but is it possible to output strings and numerics to the front panel without the small border around it? This would be especially useful for front panels that I would like to print out.

 

Thanks,

Chuck

You are half way there by using the classic versions. The next step is to break out your paint tool and paint the color of the border as transparent.

Hi,

 

You should customize your command, right click on command or indicator -> advanced -> customize

You can't eliminate it. All that you can do is to color it transparent, and as Ben already pointed out, you do not need to go into the control editor to do that.

Wow...I must say, I prefer the look of the "Classic" string much more than the "Modern" string control.  It looks more...Modern..hrmm.

 

Can I piggy-back on this question?  Is there anyway to default to the classic string when I right-click a SubVI input or output and select "Create Control" or "create Indicator"?

Sort of. In the LabVIEW Option, Front Panel section you can set the control style for new VIs. However, this only works for primitives. When doing "Create Control" on a subVI input or output this does not apply, as the style that's used in the subVI will be used.
