How To Hide Toolbar in a VI

Updated Oct 26, 2020



  • LabVIEW

I want to hide the VI toolbar of a running VI statically or  programmatically

You can achieve this in two ways:
  • Manually:
  1. Create a new VI, or open an existing VI.
  2. Browse to File » VI Properties.
  3. Under the Category drop-down menu, select Window Appearance.
  4. Click the Customize button.
  5. Check the Show Toolbar when running option.
  6. Click the OK button.
  • Programmatically:
  1. Take Current Vi's Path function.
  2. Connect it to the Open VI Reference.
  3. Take Property Node function.
  4. Once the Property Node is wired to the Open VI Reference function, left-click on the property and select Toolbar »Tool Bar:Visible Property
  5. Set the property on Write and connect a False Constant.
