Sets the icon for a project library from image data you specify.

LabVIEW applies a library icon to the icon of all objects in the library. National Instruments recommends creating only a banner for the library icon. The icon for each object in the library then includes the banner, and you can modify the body of the icon to provide information about the specific object.

This method is similar to the VI Icon Template section of the General Settings page of the Project Library Properties dialog box.

Note The LabVIEW Datalogging and Supervisory Control Module supports this method in the Run-Time Engine.
