Issue Details

I would like it to have my front panel controls and indicators to be in focus when I run my application. For example if I have scrolled over during development I would like it if the front panel shifted to show my controls when I run the application.

Solution

  1. Place down a property node on the block diagram
  2. Link it to the pane by right clicking the property node choosing Link to >> Pane >> Pane
  3. Select Origin as the property
  4. Create a constant or control and wire it to the property.
Figure below shows what the code could look like
