If there is a LabView expert available, I have a question:  I am new to LabView.  I need a "LED" object which can be "lit" in any one of three colors.  It seems that only two colors are available: "background" and "foreground".  I have tried attaching a "node", but do not know how to "wire" to that node.  Help Anyone? - Norm

It was a long time since I used LabView. But what I remeber a led has only 2 states, "on" or "off". But you can set the "on" color and the "off" color. That way you can simulate a three(3) state led.

I know this question is waaay old, but there may be someone new who wanders here with the same problem.

The newest versions of LV allow two answers:

Easy one - That'll do: Use a Color Box
Hard one - Exactly what you wanted: Use Property node


The Easy one:

Right click on the front panel. In the Numeric panel, there's a Framed Color Box; place it and you can resize and deform it. Right click on it and click Change to Indicator.
Then on your Block Diagram, you can place Color constants (found in the Dialog & User Interface section) inside case structures, to set the color of that box to whatever you want.

The Hard one:

Place the regular LED you want. Find it in the Block diagram; right click and choose Create > Property Node > Colors.
Right click on that thing to Change to Write.
You can then programmatically change the color of the led (you still have to set it on and off). Check the Help for that one, it's a cluster of two arrays I think.
