  1. I am having difficulty creating a UI that scales well for monitors of different resolutions. For programs that have numerous indicators and controls the scaling issue can be especially challenging. The solution provided by NI to this issues as I have read it is to use splitter bars https://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/Different-Screen-Resolutions-What-is-the-best-method/td-p/1749514 By using splitter bars you can get front panel objects to 'scale' within their pane by first grouping the controls/indicators and then right clicking the group and selecting 'scale object with pane' (although the controls often look distorted when scaling). However, this solution is only viable if you have a limited number of front panel items. When I have too many objects to be displayed on a single window I use tab controls to organize my front panel items. However, you can not use splitter bars within a tab control to so the objects placed on the tab control pages won't scale. https://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW-Idea-Exchange/Tab-Controls-with-Splitter-Bars/idi-p/990693 Are there any other viable solutions that people are using to solve this issue? Does it require sub panels? Are there any best practices?
  2. A mouse over hover effect has become standard in most major software UIs. This effect allows users to interact with controls in a more intuitive way and gives users confidence that they are making the selection that they intend. However there is a long standing NI bug that renders the hover effect inconsistent (see the discussion here: https://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/Button-Boolean-mouse-hover-not-working-on-64-Bit-LabVIEW/m-p/3944252#M1121887) Until NI makes a fix one 'solution' that I will employ is to disable the hover effect with the controls that I am using so that users do not get confused by a control stuck in a hover state.
