Issue Details

I would like to display an explanation as a pop-up window of the different controls included on the Front Panel of my application. Does National Instruments provide any library to achieve it?


National Instruments Engineers, created a library which is called NI SmartBalloon for LabVIEW. You can set up dialog boxes with limited appearance features and a modal window. With this library, your application can punctually display an information flow in a corner of your screen. The notification balloons eventually fade after a user-defined time or when you click on them. You can customize their appearance to fit your application theme.

Additional Information

You can download this library by visiting NI SmartBalloon Library for LabVIEW or through VI Package Manager.
