Issue Details

I'm building a LabWindows™/CVI application that maximize the Panel Window. 
I put a breakpoint in the code and when the application stops on the breakpoint, the Panel Window is always on top all other applications and I'm not able to open another application. 
What is the problem?


The reason of this behavior is because your Panel Window is set as floating. 
In order to get back to the regular window, double-click your UIR in order to edit the panel, select Other Attribute and be sure the Floating Style is set as Never.
