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 ...Long pull down menu of tab control. References to controls on page of tab control.
two questions regarding a tab control:
I am using a tab control for offering the user various sub menus. The tabs are switched invisible. Instead I am using the page labels display for control of the tab. The list of available sub-menus (tabs) has already become quite long so that a pull down menu with a scrollbar appears (See attached screenshot). However, the scrollbar is not very convenient and not actually needed. Does anyone know how I could avoid this scrollbar?
I would like to get all the references of all controls of...How do I put a control on a certain page of a tab control, instead of the WHOLE tab control
I am trying to put a 3D surface plot onto one page of a tabbed
control, but Labview insists on putting it on top of the whole tabbed
control, so that you can't look at different pages.
What's the deal?
I made a test with LV 7.0. I can put the 3D Surface Graph into a page
of the tab control. Move the 3D Surface Graph from the tab control
onto a blank area of the front panel. Move the 3D Surface Graph back
onto the page you want it. Be sure to get a black broken line around
the page. Then release the mouse button. If you lay the 3D Surface
Graph partly on the tab control it w...tab control strict typedef hides controls

In my disgust, I had deleted all copies of the offending vi. I believe
my problem must have been, primarily, a corrupted compile/save.

I'm trying to use the event when a person moves to a different form by
clicking on the built in Access application tabs.
Is there something I can reference or does it require some kind of
subclassing/hook api calls?

Hi Chri...tab control inside another tab control
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.
The only way I know to do this is to put a subform on the first tab control.
Then you can put your second tab control on the subform.
If you do this repeatedly, however, you will find the form loading rather

I am creating a form with a tab control containing 10 tabs. and what I
want to do is on only on of the tabs, I want a sub section of tabs.
So what it ends up being is one main tab control with another tab
control embedded into only one of the tab pages. The problem I am
getting is when I insert the sub section tab control into one of the
tabs from the main tab control, the sub section tab control appears in
every tab in the main tab control. Can anyone help? What do I need
to do so it only appears in one tab, not all.
As you found, you cannot place a tab control on one of the pages...Refs to controls on tab control
I'm really stumped. I have been able to get all of my references to all my controls with property nodes - even controls inside clusters for all of the controls on a vi front panel. However, when I move these very same controls onto a tab control I can't seem to figure out how to get these same references! I can only get the tab control ref. :smileyindifferent:

I am using a two page tab control. I place an activex control on one
page. the activex renerates images. When I run the vi, the activex
control appears on both pages. I only want the control to show on one
page. Can anyone help me? The control correctly shows on one page when
the vi is NOT running.

I have a form "frmturnover" on which there is asubform "subfrmturnover"
which has three tabcontrols say Page1, Page2 and Page3. There is control
"control2" on Page2 that when its is entered I want to check if it is the
same value as a control "control1" on Page1 and then show a pop up box if
they don't match. I can work out the code for the message box but I'm
getting a little lost on the syntax for referring to the controls on the
pages of the tab control.
I also want to check the value of Control2 on page2 with the vale of

What I am looking for is help trying to accomplish control + tab
exiting subform #1 on page #1 and entering the first control (main
form) on page #2. I've tried the following code, however it seems to
"fire twice", placing me at the first control on subform #2 on page
#3, totally skipping page #2. It seems to very briefly stop the
control on page two, but keeps going. Hope that made sense. Key
preview for subform is set to yes. This is a continous subform, so
options to leave subform on last control won't work. That's why I'm

Is there any way to have a Combo Box control a Tab Control. An Enumerated Ring control can if all the names match "Exactly", question is can a Combo Box do the same, especially within an Event Structure?
I haven't been able to figure it out. Enclosed is a test VI that has an enumerated ring example, and a combo box with the same data. Thanks for your help...

I know how to use a manifest file to get the XP look for the Windows Common

Does anyone know how?
Also, while I am able to get the XP look through a manifest file in my app's

app's folder. I've read it has to do with compiling with a resource file
but I don't know how to do that. Can anyone offer any assistance?
