Opening Internal Dialogs

How do I make a button in the Front Panel open the Properties dialog of a Scaling & Mapping Express VI?
Is this possible? If so, how exactly?

RE: Opening Internal Dialogs

I have found a way to open the configuration dialog for the Scaling and Mapping Express VI.
There is a VI stored in :
<LabView Path>\vi.lib\express\express arith-compare\ScaleandMapConfig.vi

I have added it to my block diagram using "Select a VI..." in "All Funcs".

The problem is that it needs 3 VI references as input (Parent VI, VI, SubVI). So the question is, how do I get the reference of each Scale and Map VIs I have in my block diagram to open the configurarion for the desired one?
And which are considered the Parent VI, VI and SubVI? Where do I get these other references from?

Please I need to solve this problem urgently.
Thanks in advance.
