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?

control on page two, but keeps going. Hope that made sense. Key

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
folder I should be able to do this without the file having to be in the

but I don't know how to do that. Can anyone offer any assistance?
...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.
I seem to remeber in older versions you had to drag the tabable
controls off the tab control, specify the tabbing oder and then drag
them back on. The oldest version I have on ...tab control--how do I use same control/indicator on multiple pages.
I am using tab control. each tab has many controls and indicators. I

anyone, please, help me?
Unfortunately, there is no way to do this in LabVIEW. The best that
you can do is have multiple controls and then update the others to the
same state using property nodes.
You can do this by selecting the controls/indicators and moving them
on top of the tab control by using the arrow keys and not using the
mouse to drag them over the tab. You can end up with some goof...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. Can anyone help? What do I need
to do so it only appears in one tab, not all.

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

Is there a "best practice" maximum number of controls that can be

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

I'm trying to change the back colour of a tab control in Access 2010 by
using a rectangle.
I've selected the tab control (not an individual page) and pasted the

I then send the rectangle to the back and then the tab control to the back.
The problem is that most (but not all controls remain hidden) on each tab.
Subform and list boxes are visible, but labels and text boxes aren't.
I've done this before in another application, but can't remember how I did

Not sure I understand your issue. Anyway, check in properties and set the background to transparent.

I have a tab control, named 'theTab'. It has a number of Pages with Captions such as Cards, Qualifications, Accidents, Notes.
I can write a statement such as
me.theTab.Pages("Accidents").visible = true
However if I wish to determine which page has been activated I write:
if me.theTab = 3 then
or if I wish to move to a specific page I write
me.theTab = 2
This is fine until I rearrange the page order. Then the constants in my code need to change. I could (maybe should!) have constants such as:
const PageCards = 0
const PageQualifications = 1

(like tab sheet simmiliar to access),

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.
