Maximum Number Of Controls On A Tab Control

Is there a "best practice" maximum number of controls that can be
loaded on to a tab control before things start getting messy and
sluggish?  I'm asking for a "best practice" maximum number across all
tabs and not the maximum number that is theoretically possible.

I figure that trying to add lots of controls to lots of tabs must
affect performance at some point.

Any help is appreciated.

There is a maimum number of controls on a Form.  Not sure about a TabControl.

Think of it this way.  A TabControl is just a handy way of toggling the 
visibility of a bunch of controls all at the same time.  It likely has almost no 
affect on performance at all.  Certainly not any that I have been able to 
perceive.

In some applications tab controls contain subforms. If things get
sluggish I typically only set the SourceObject once the user hits that
particular tab.

Otherwise: YMMV. Do some tests and see what your users' tolerance
level is.

Tab control in one of the tabs of another tab control
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. Hi rashid, yes it is possible. See the attached example.

Tab Events of Access Application ? (NOT Access Tab Control)

Imb. > You can use the OnDeactivate event. Hello Imb, 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 tab. Okay, thanks. 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.

Hi. Is it possible to put a tab control inside another tab control. I tried it several times, but for some reason this doesn't seem to work. Can someone confirm this, or tell me what the trick is.

Tab Control and Rectangle Hiding Controls

how to access database control of many oracle10g database instances on same server
I am on Redhat Linux 9 and using Oracle 10G (10.0.1.3?). I know how to create a Oracle database instance and use EM database control to administer the database. To access database control from a browser, Oracle asks to enter a URL: http://server_name:5500/em The URL does not specify the ORACLE_SID. I however want to create several database instances on the same box. Will Oracle automatically set up a different port (e.g., 5501) for second instance.

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.&nbsp;The VI is trapped inside the event until stop&nbsp;is pressed to&nbsp;stop the VI. you were closer to a reasonable program in the other thread: <a href="http://forums.ni.com/ni/board/message?board.id=170&amp;view=by_date_ascending&amp;message.id=287905"...

Control visiblilty of a text box on a Tab Control
Hey, thanks for reading my question. I'm using a combo box to control the visibility of a text box. When I make a change to the combo box it will set the visible property to true on a text box. When I had these objects not on the Tab Control everything worked great. Now with these object on the tab control and I open the form the vicinity works but when I change the combo box which set the visibility nothing changes. What am I missing?

Any one got any suggestions. Is your code behind your combobox still there? When you move an object (cut and paste) to a tab control the event procedure code is "lost". You may note that your Event Procedure is not there anymore in your combobox properties.. but when you click on the build button it will bring up the code... and upon returning the Event Procedure reappears!

OT: MS Access runtime wants to control all MS Office charts
Office 97, Access 97, Sagekeys scripts. In addtion of Access 97, my runtime package is installed too. This is an old application that has been running since 1998. The customer is happy with it.

If he selects 'Open', it will do it in a separate windows and it is Ok. Thius probably comes because MS Chart is shared among office apps.
