How Do I Programmatically Open a VI?

In LabVIEW 2011, I programmatically opened VIs using the Front Panel»Open property node. However, I can't locate the property node in LabVIEW 2012. Additionally when I open code created in previous versions in LabVIEW 2012, the property node is pink rather than pale yellow. What should I use to programmatically open VIs?
The property node variant is no longer supported in the 2012 version of LabVIEW. Instead, a VI Invoke Node can be used to achieve the same function.
There is also a method for closing the front panel:
To achieve the equivalent of the read property, use the Front Panel Window»State property to read whether the front panel is open (standard) or closed.
