front panel attributes

Is there anyway to get an attribute node for the background color of the front
panel?

If I'm not wrong, there's no way of changing background
color programatically, you can use a little trick, put a
large flat boolean covering all the background and change
its color using an attribute node.
Hope this helps

No. You can use either a boolean button and set it's colours, or a colour
box as an indicator an wire the colour to it directly.

Yes,
Open a VI reference and then create a front panel property node. Next create another property node from the front panel property node, (Create>> Property>> Color). Wire the output from the front panel property node into the Color property node and connnect a color pallette to the input color.

When you feed a path into the Open VI Reference the front panel color will change according to the color pallette selection.
