 Making a sub VI create a graph on Front Panel

Is it possible to drag a sub-VI onto a wiring diagram which makes a
graph pop up on the front panel. Or alternativly, is it possible to
make a custom indicator (looks like a graph) which i can place on the
Front Panel and on the wiring diagram shows up a subVI.

Did that make any sense at all?

 Making a sub VI create a graph on Front Panel
Hi Rob,
If I understood it right, I think there are more than one ways you
could do this. The one that i can think at the top of my head is: to
create a subvi with a graph and change one of its VI properties,
'Window Appearance' to 'Dialog' so that it looks more like a custom
pop-up window without the menu bar. You can then place this subvi in
your regular vi, wire a appropriate input to the graph in the subvi
and edit the 'subvi node setup' by right clicking on it and choosing
to  'show the front panel when called'. This way whenever your main
application dataflow reaches the subvi, it would pop-up the subvi
front panel and display your graphed values.

Hope this helps,

You can achieve this using the palette. Edit your control palette menu
right click to insert a control. Instead of selecting a control, make
"Show all.." and select a VI. After saving the changes, when you will
select this added item to put on a FP, all the controls of the VI are
put on the front panel and the VI code is inserted on the diagram.
To get the same from the function palette, insert a VI on the palette
and select "Merge VI". Then when you select this VI to put on the
diagram, its code is put on the diagram and its controls on the FP.
