Issue Details

In LabVIEW I can change the color of both controls and indicators on my front panel.  How can I do this in LabVIEW NXG?


The method is the same as for LabVIEW, you can use property nodes to make cosmetic changes programmatically.

Additional Information

This functionality was added in LabVIEW NXG 5.0, previous versions do not allow changing the color.
