Creating a Custom Palette

Last Modified: April 15, 2020

The palette provides an organized hierarchy of all the objects you can add to the diagram or panel. Create a palette file (.gpal), or an add-on library, to customize a palette category with the objects in your library. By default, custom categories are added to the Add-ons palette category.

  1. On the Document tab of a Library document, click Create palette file.
  2. In the Palette Options dialog box, select the type of palette you want to create.
    • G diagram palette—Create a palette containing objects you can drop on the diagram.
    • G panel palette—Create a palette containing objects you can drop on the panel.
  3. Click OK.
  4. In the palette file, use the options on the Item tab to customize each palette item.
Now that you have created your custom palette, consider creating localized string dictionaries for and optimizing your add-on library before creating a LabVIEW NXG project to demonstrate the use of your add-on library.
