Issue Details

The front panel of my VI is not the correct size since I have been using a different monitor. How can I change the size of my front panel to work with my new monitor?


The standard way to change the size of a front panel to match the monitor resolution is to change the Minimum Panel Size to match your monitor resolution. This setting can be found by opening the VI and navigating to File > VI Properties and selecting the Window Size category. 

As an example, lets say the VI you are using is currently set to a Minimum Panel Size of 1920 x 1200. When you switch to a monitor with a resolution of 1680 x 1050, part of the front panel will not show up on the screen. You can open the VI Properties, navigate to the Window Size category, and configure the VI with the properties shown below.
