Todd knows how to push my buttons so to speak and so he sent me the following challenge late last night:
Always being up for a challenge I looked at the original article (available at cars.com) and set about creating the same UI in LabVIEW.
About an hour later I had this:
A fully functional implementation of the same UI in LabVIEW without using any tricks such as importing .NET controls or using picture controls. I used the original images with a few tweaks here and there so I can't take credit for designing the UI but it's nice to know that it's relatively easy to import fantastic looking graphics into LabVIEW and have them be more than just decorations.
If you'd like to play around with the VI I've attached it below.
So to answer Todd's question. Yes, I can, and so can you!
