LabVIEW Web server Question...

Hello Experts,

I hope one of you can program LabVIEW and help me with these problem:

I configured and stablished a WEB server with Labview ( easy one), as you may now it can display a Virtual instrument so everyone can see it, but the issue is that i cant make it to display several SubVi's that the main panel calls.
 Example i use a Login user dialog , and when i run it on the server i can see it, but the remote panels cant. My only guess is that i must some how include that subVI on the HTML code so i can use it, but i dont know exactly how

I'll see what I can do here, I have experience in programming in LabView, but none yet in making controls available online.

Still, I believe that just because of the way Labview is object oriented with a sort of "black box" tool design, it may not allow you to open and control a whole bunch of sub-vi's with the simple view of the server. If you can link me to what you have up, I might be able to offer some more insight, but otherwise, I would say a good work around if you wish to have control over the sub-vi's is to either make your program monolithic - and include the contents of your sub-vi's all in your back panel, or else add several controls to your front panel for messing around with the sub-vi's. If all you want is to allow the user to view the sub-vi's, then maybe you can settle for screenshots?

The program that i am trying to do is to have a front panel, say "main.vi" and the with a button click display another dialog, i have made this in my computer but not on a web server because it doesnt show the other VI.
Look, all i want it to do is to display another panel, like when programming in DELPHI you put ShowModal(). So i have already done that in LabView with just creating Sub-Vi's that are called from the Main.Vi, but when running a web server i know there must be a way to include those VI in the web server but i am not aware of that option.

What i noticed in these forums is that there is not a development area for LabView, like Ni.forum or LAva.com. But i posted this question to try out the webpage.
