If you are talking about a graph annotation in 8.20 all you have to do is right click on the annotation and select attributes and then color.
if you are talking about something else please be more specific.
By "annotation" do you mean "Free Text Labels"?
If so, then...
The current default is black text on a pale yellow backround with a black border, some LV versions ago the background was white.
Sorry, I should have been more specific. I'm talking about creating an annotation in an XY graph during runtime in LV 8.20. The properties page only lets you select cursor and plot colors- no annotation colors. The options for labVIEW environment is no help either.
You are describing cursors. I could use them, but they do not have the nifty arrow.
|Note Right-click the graph and select Data Operations»Delete All Annotations from the shortcut menu to delete all annotations in the plot area.|
What LabVIEW version are you using, because that attributes menu never comes up when right clicking an annotation. The described menu does come up when right clicking a cursor. In fact when right clicking the annotation, the graph menu appears- as though the annotation is transparent or nonexistent in terms of modifying by menus. There is no way to modify it after creation (except the name with a property node)
Thanks for the reply. It works. If I have to modify the annotation in this one and only manner, I think I will remove the create annotation option from the shortcut menu. Why would it be any different than modifying a cursor. Pain in the $%#!!
Thanks for the answer TonP!!
