To find the wiring terminal or the control on the opposite panel simply right click on what you are looking for.

Colors tell you what type of data you have green is Boolean, Orange is decimal numbers, Blue is integers

The thickness of the lines around boxes tells whether it is an indicator or a control.

Thin lines are indicators and thick lines are controls.

Wire thickness tells you the dimensions of the data

Thin wires are scalar data

Medium wires are vector data

Thick wires are 2 or 3D array data

Pink wires have cluster data which means any kind of data can pass through these wires

Graphicons that are white = SubVIs are isolated modules that have their own programming underneath

Anything with a yellow color is the lowest level of functions
