Our DMC Test and Measurement team recently created the DMC LabVIEW UI palette! It’s the first official DMC LabVIEW user interface control and indicator set, and will save time on our LabVIEW user-interfaces while simultaneously providing our customers with modern and sleek user interfaces.
21st Century UI
On our projects, we usually spend a good amount of time manipulating the appearance of native LabVIEW controls and indicators to bring them into the 21st century. We know the standard modern, silver, classic, and system controls that ship with LabVIEW appear outdated in a world where everyone is used to seeing Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) graphics on their phone apps.
Here’s a sample of the UI palette that DMC will now be using to develop LabVIEW applications:
In total, our engineers spent over two weeks of time diligently updating all of the common controls and indicators. There have been plenty of other people and companies who have created LabVIEW control palettes, but the great limitation to almost all of these is the lack of customization.
Advantages of the DMC LabVIEW UI Palette
The use of picture backgrounds to create nice looking graphics is definitely a useful feature for LabVIEW controls, but it prevents the developer from having control over what theme color’s style they want to use.
With the DMC LabVIEW UI Palette, anything that you could normally change the color and style of from native LabVIEW controls is still customizable! This means that the controls that we created can be used on any project and customized to the particular style and theme of the application.
With this new controls kit, we look forward to creating even more impressive UI's on all of our future LabVIEW applications!
