Position of the top left corner of the bounding rectangle of the object on the front panel window in terms of left and top coordinates.

The bounding rectangle of the object includes all visible parts of the object. For example, if the object label is visible and you wire the top coordinate to this property, LabVIEW positions the top of the label at the coordinate you wired. If the object label is not visible, LabVIEW positions the top of the remaining visible parts of the object at the coordinate you wired.

Note LabVIEW sets the origin for this property when you create a VI. When you scroll the owning pane, the origin does not change but instead scrolls with the owning pane. If you do not move the object, this property returns the same coordinates for the object regardless of whether you scroll the owning pane. Use the Origin property with this property to calculate the current position of an object in relation to the owning pane. For most front panel objects, this property returns the position of the object relative to the origin of the owning pane. For panes, this property returns the position of the pane relative to the global panel coordinate system.

If you attempt to reposition an object that is grouped with other objects, LabVIEW repositions only the object you specify, not the whole group.
