How can I set the tab order of text box controls on each page of a tab control?
I need to be able to select the tabbing order of individual controls
on a single page of a tabbed control. How??
In LV 6.1 an up you should be ablel to right click on the edge of the
tab control when the tab-page in question is selected.
The bttom selcetion in the pop-up is "Reoder controls in page..."
selecting this option will switch editing modes to allow you to
specify the ored, just like in a cluster.

One of my colleagues is working with a tab control. He has several tabs. He is trying to embed another tab control inside one of the tabs of the first tab control. He had placed the second tab control inside one of the tabs of the first tab control. But the problem is that the second tab control does not show up (unless one goes to the block diagram and double clicks the second tab control, only then does it shows up; when the vi is closed and reopened its again not there). I told him that I had never seen such functionality (a tab control inside another tab control) in any application but is it somehow possible. All this is required while the VI is not running and is being developed (of course it should work at run time, but this functionality must show while the VI is not running, i.e., this functionality should be non-programmatic. Is it possible. Thanks for your time.

You can use the OnDeactivate event.

Aha. Now I am forced to make an event for each form. Trying to
automate what tab the ribbon moves to based on the access application
Access could use a rewrite of it's event system imho. There are no top
level application events to tap into, no 'after delete' event, record
saves w/ a 'dirty=true', it's all quite ridiculous.
I was hoping the new table events would be the solution but they come
up w/ this 'data macro' crap where there doesn't seem to be any way to
call your own code on the event.
Sometimes I wonder if the ms developers ever use Access.
However, I love the report and form design improvements.

You need to read about Grid Control. Actually when you create your

I hae read about Grid Control, but I think there is still a way to
access many instnaces on the same server using database control.
Of course you can, a DB Console for each database, and you can choose
that as your preferred approach, too. But I really think it's a waste
of resources and a big inconvenience. You are probably better off
with the "tradictional" desktop console.
Just my 2 cents.

Hello, I am still trying to figure out a method of controlling a discharge valve for compressor testing. The valve is controlled by a slider, but when it hits a certain point of being closed, the compressor surges. At that surge point, I want the user to click a button, and then have the valve slowly open while the data is being sent to a file. This way, the data is recorded and the valve opens to prevent damage to the compressor all at the click of one button. I have the VI up and running, all except for the opening part of the valve. I have included a simple example of where I am going with the valve control. Any advice would be appreciated, for then I can implement that code for the valve opening into the rest of my programming.

You have a basic misunderstanding of dataflow. Maybe you should start with some tutorials or study some of the examples that ship with LabVIEW.
- The event structure belongs inside the while loop, and not vice versa. RIght now, the event structure only runs exactly once and never again.
- If the stop is pressed first, the VI will stop. Game over.
- If the tab control is changed (from any state to any other state!), the inner loop will spin forever as fast as the CPU allows, either executing one or the other case. It just reads the tab terminal to decide which case to execute. Changing tab never triggers any events. The VI is trapped inside the event until stop is pressed to stop the VI.
you were closer to a reasonable program in the other thread:
