Tab Control Back Style Windows Themed Controls

A2003.  I rather like the appearance I get with windows themed controls 
turned on, but I'm running into an odd problem with tab controls.

When I set the back style to transparent, it really isn't transparent. 
I'm finding instead of one text box or a button that I'd like to have on 
the form "shining through" and displaying with all pages, it's as if the 
tab control keeps the odd colour background it generates.

I originally developed the current app in question in A2003, but with a 
different theme than I have right now on my PC and the colours, such as 
the standard system colour -2147483633 for form backgrounds is a nice 
beige/tan colour.

In spite of the nice colour, however, instead of one text box that lists 
information from another form, I must place one on each of the tab's 
pages.  Instead of one OK button and one cancel button, I must either 
raise the blinking bottom of the tab control or put a copy of the two of 
these buttons on each page.  It's irritating.

Anyone else run into this and have a solution?  TIA

Tab Control "Backstyle" Property Not Working With Windows Themed Controls
The tab control "backstyle" property refuses to work when set to "transparent" in an A2003 database if Windows themes controls are being used. I've seen references to this in a few places, but no fix. If the A2003 database is opened using A2007 the property works fine. Go figure. Does anyone know of a workaround? ...

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)
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?

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. However, I love the report and form design improvements. <christianlott1@yahoo.com> wrote in message news:ba72c614-57c0-4045-9af0-3cd9734e923b@r18g2000vbs.googlegro...

Tab control within another tab control
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.

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.

kb969898 Windows Update Broke MSComm control, maybe other VB controls, in Access 2003
Greetings, Here's a strange one for you. I have an Access 2003 app that uses the MSComm32 ActiveX control (From VB6) to talk to a serial printer. It has worked fine for years, but as of the Windows Update earlier this week (I narrowed it down to kb969898, which is a kill bits update to block malicious behavior by ActiveX controls in IE, but seems to also include VB6 SP6 as well). Links: The kb: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/advisory/969898.mspx The VB6 SP6: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=957924 During execution of the form with the control, I get Error 438 - 'Object doesn't support this property or method'. (happens on the first line of code that refers to the control, specifically, the .CommPort property, but I think any property or method would trigger the error, see next paragraph) So, I went into design view and then get 'There is no Object in this control'. The control no longer shows as a telephone icon, but blank. I tried these without success: - Re inserting the control - Re registering the control - Adding a reference to the control and using as an object variable instead of as a control - Creating a brand new db and form and adding the control Then on a whim, I tried it in Access 97, and the control works just like before. Removing the update returns functionality to normal. According to the link on the VB SP6, there is a known issue, that is described as being similar (Different wording of the error messa...

Maximum Number Of Controls On A Tab Control

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. All the documentation I have found on Oracle's web site refers to a single database instance on a server. Appreciate any pointers. Thanks a lot, Prem You need to read about Grid Control.

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!

How to control the tab control using event structure?

When user switches from active page to the other page then event is&nbsp;taking place for all pages &nbsp; So, how to get the event trigger for the active page when the application is started &nbsp; For more clarification i am attaching the code "Test Control Tab using Event Structure.vi" Test Control Tab using Event Structure.vi: http://forums.ni.com/attachments/ni/170/288159/1/Test Control Tab using Event Structure.vi 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.&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"...
