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:

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. I see no problems with it.Hope it helps.Mike Untitled_LV71.vi: http://forums.ni.com/attachments/ni/170/323165/1/Untitled_LV71.vi Thanks <a href="../view_profile?user.id=88992" class="auth_text" style="font-weight: bold;" target="_blank"> MikeS81</a>!

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. Thanks As you found, you cannot place a tab control on one of the pages...

tab control inside another 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. Thanks. -- Georges 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 slowly.

Syntax of control on tab controls
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.

Control/Indicator descriptions are not imported or checked from LabVIEW to NI RG when they are placed on Tab controls

Getting XP look with tabbed dialog control and tab strip control

Tab Control and Rectangle Hiding Controls
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 rectagle (solid with required colour). 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 it.

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 ...

How to easily control multiple controls in labview
How can I easily control multiple controls with a single write to in Labview? For instance, I need to update 50 different boolean indicators. When I update them one at a time I use a cntrl refrence in my event structure, but outside of an event structure how can I easily cycle through them and update without making 50 local variables if I need to do them all at once? Why don't you use an array of boolean indicators? Have a look at the example attached <a href="http://forums.ni.com/ni/board/message?board.id=170&amp;view=by_date_ascending&amp;message.id=204328#M204328" target="_blank">here</a>, which can also be applied to this. You should usually avoid updating the value of a control from more than one place, though (unless it's something like initialization, where you can guarantee not having race conditions). Other alternatives: using an array of booleans or using the picture control to create the image. The way i use these booleans in my UI, I had to make them separate so I could arrange them in a user friendly way. And yes this is just for initialization so they won't be getting updated in two places at once. ...

Valve control
Hello, I am still trying to figure out a method of controlling a discharge valve for compressor testing.&nbsp; The valve is controlled by a slider, but when it hits a certain point of being closed, the compressor surges.&nbsp; 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&nbsp;a file.&nbsp; This way, the data is recorded and the valve opens to prevent damage to the compressor all at the click of one button.&nbsp; I have the VI up and running, all except for the opening part of the valve.&nbsp; I have included a simple example of where I am going with the valve control.&nbsp; Any advice would be appreciated, for then I can implement that code for the valve opening into the rest of my programming. &nbsp; Thank you, &nbsp; &nbsp; Jmc Valve control.vi: http://forums.ni.com/attachments/ni/170/198874/1/Valve control.vi ...

How to control the tab control using event structure?
Hi, I am using tab control and event structure in the program. When i run the application event is not happening for the active page. 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"...

How do you control seperate motors with Labview through a remote control?
Forgive me if I am not typing the question correctly, or if it is a stupid question. I am only fourteen and only started learning about Labview.. I would appreciate all help possible. Thanks What type of motors are you trying to control?&nbsp; How do you have them/plan to have them connected to your computer?&nbsp; When you say you want to control remotely, do you mean that you don't want them connected to a computer or that you want to communicate remotely through your computer (no cables)?&nbsp; The more information you can give the better help you will receive. Cheers Hi LouidSilence, It would also be helpful to know what version of LabVIEW you are using.&nbsp; It's impressive that your starting to learn LabVIEW at such a young age, it will be challenging but worth it!&nbsp; Well first off, thanks for asking questions to my questions, it helps me too :) The kind of motors I am trying to control are IFI Robotics Multi-Speed Motor Connect to PWM or RLY port (12 volt).. I am trying to remotely control it wirelessly, through an IFI Robotics Isaac16 EDU Robot Controller with 900MHz Short Range Radio Modem. Hope this Helps.. Oh yeah, and the version of LabView I am using is 8.5 Hi LoudSilence, It looks like your controller is designed to be&nbsp;programmed in BASIC.&nbsp; What you will need to do in order to control it with LabVIEW is figure out what the function calls&nbsp;are that will be required to activate your PMW signals etc.&a...

LabVIEW PDA and Tab Controls

Reading controller data into LabVIEW through serial connections to controllers?
I'd like to read data from environmental chamber controllers (System Plus) into LabVIEW through RS232 connections.&nbsp; Has anyone done something similar? &nbsp;I see interfacing with the serial controllers as the biggest obstacle and although not directly related to LabVIEW programming, I'm hoping someone here can give me some advice or resources on how best to do so now days. &nbsp;My first thought is to write a program with VB or C++ to act as a terminal and write the data to a text file for LabVIEW to poll.&nbsp; Aside from using Telix decades ago to work with BBSes, my only other serial experience consists of interfacing with a Kiethly multimeter using a C++ program.&nbsp; &nbsp;I would rather not use multiple PCs but I have never worked with more than one serial port on a computer before in the past.&nbsp; Perhaps LabVIEW itself already provides for multiple serial card communications (wouldn't that be perfect)? &nbsp;Any info would be great. &nbsp;Regards, &nbsp;Dave&nbsp;&nbsp; LabVIEW has had support for serial communication for as long as I've used it and may have been part of version 1. It also supports multiple serial ports&nbsp;- built-in and USB-&gt;RS232. There are even a couple of shipping examples. I've not used this particular chamber but I've used several with serial connections. It's a matter of getting the programming manual and working through it if a driver does not al...
