  • LabVIEW

I recently started a new project based on a LabVIEW template. The title bar is showing the title of the template followed by the name of my VI in brackets. How do I change what is displayed in the title bar for my VI?

You can change the text shown in the title bar in the Window Appearance settings of the VI.
  1. Right click the VI in the project explorer
  2. Select 'Properties' from the menu
  3. Select 'Window Appearance' from the 'Category' drop down menu
  4. Either update the window title to display your new project name or check 'Same as VI name' to just use the VI name
