I want to set new default values for my panel controls in LabVIEW NXG. How can I do this?

In the example below, we want to set a new default value for a string control on our panel. We can do so by following these steps:

1. Enter the value you want to use as the control's default. In this example, we will set I want this message to be the default value for this control to be the string control's default.
2. Click Data in the toolbar.
3. Select Make panel values default. This will set the current values of all controls on the panel as their respective defaults.

If you want to change the default value of a single control, right-click on the control and select Make current value default.
