"Key Down" event use in one page of tab control prevents using "Value Change" events on another page, even though separate case structure blocks handle the two
The attached VI has a tabbed control with two pages. On one page, titled "Using Value Change Events", there is a control and an indicator, and the underlying code processes a Value Change event on that control by adding one to the number and displaying it on the indicator. On the other page, titled "Using Key Down Events", there is an indicator, and the underlying code processes a Key Down event by displaying the scancode on the indicator. Both these underlying code blocks are in different cases of a case structure chosen by the tab control. Some extra items are ne...tab control and event structure

automatically and no extra "Quit while loop button" is necessary. Any

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.

Then you can put your second tab control on the subform.

That's true of GMATCH. Look at VMATCH, which uses PROC ASSIGN to optimize
when controls are not to be re-used. You need a license for SAS/OR to be
able to use VMATCH.
But you have added a wrinkle by specifying that 5-year window. I'm just not
sure if there's a way to specify that to PROC ASSIGN.

I am currently testing Requirements Gateway. As it seems it does not find any controls placed on a tab control to see if it is covered or not.
Is there any reason not searching for controls placed on tab controls?
We have VIs iterating over complex Front Panel structures to find all controls. Maybe we can add this functionality to NI RG LabVIEW interface.
Is there anyone can help in this?
...Locked controls on new tab after finishing event structure
My first question for the forum. I found a few posts which had similar issues but I still can't seem to figure this one out.
This program creates a temperature profile and it's within a much larger program where I want the user to be able to cancel, continue, go back a step, etc. It all works fine until I leave the event structure loop and go to the verify tab. The user should be able to continue or cancel but the buttons will not press. I believe the event structure is locking the front panel but I turned off...How to control Arcus Technology's PMX 2 ED motion controller using labVIEW

In LV 6.1 an up you should be ablel to right click on the edge of the

selecting this option will switch editing modes to allow you to

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

I want to create an event handler that responds to Mouse Up on one of my front panel controls, but this particular control is not listed in the Event Sources pane of the Edit Events dialog for the Event Structure where all the other controls are. How do I get it to show up there? All the other controls are already working this way, creating events that the Event Structure handles. This particular control doesn't appear to have any unique or unusual properties, it's just a boolean control, a switch, like most of the others. Restarting LabView still doesn't make it appear on the list.
This LV 8.5 on WinXP.
could it be that this control is part of a cluster?
Hi, Mike. No clusters. Good idea, tho.
Actually, I have now added several controls without seeing them on the list, at least at first. Then, while I was sitting there glaring at the list itself, it suddenly grew longer, and they were all there, appearing at the end. An extra gap appeared in the scroll bar at the right, too, making the handle part of the scroll bar a little shorter while I was looking at it. But it took a couple of minutes. Weird.
Now I can point to all my controls, though I don't know if this will happen again if I add more.
Is there any way to force this list to refresh itself? Or do we just need to wait if controls aren't there yet? I'm surprised the discrepancy could outlast closing and reo...tab control strict typedef hides controls
