Increase number of characters in file name field of save-as dialogue box RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running a LabVIEW vi. The first thing this vi does is open a save dialogue box so that I can write my data to a file. The vi populates the filename field in the dialogue box with the date, time and file type. This ensures unique file names for all files and eases searches for the files. The file name is highlighted in blue so that it can be easily overwritten if the user chooses to use a different file name. The problem is not all of the file name is visible, some the first characters are cut off. The field itself is much longer than the file name but for some reason it pushes the name to the left and doesn't show it all.

    Is there a way for me to change the way the filename appears in the filename field so that all of the name is visible?
