Tab order in Tab Control
I have a modeless dialog (as the main window) which contains a tab control.
For each tab I have a child window.
My problem lies in tabbing through the controls. As of now I can only tab
through the controls in the main dialog. That is, the only control here is
the tab control.
What I want to achieve is to be able to tab through the controls on the
current active tab's page.
Any idea on how to do this?

order that's different from the control order? For example, if I use a
tabpanel, which the control order is very specific in RB or else all
the controls get screwed up. So I have all my controls working on the
tabpanel but I want my own tab order. Any way to do this? It seems like
there should be an option to make a custom order, regardless of the
control order.....or maybe I'm missing something.

How can I set the tabbing order of controls in a tab control on the
front panel when having several other controls on the front panel.
Right-click on the tab and select "Reorder controls In page" from the
menu that pops up.
This is not exactly what I meant.
When I'm creating a local variable I can choose its destination
(right-click - select item). Because there are so many I would like to
reorder the tabbing order to choose the correct on the top.
All this action are taken in the block diagramm.
From the edit menu, select

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 order on multirow tab control

MS has designed their tab controls like this.

Is there any way to get this working there too?

I have 3 groups of controls each in their own frame and all are sitting on a
page in a tab control.
I want the user to be able to tab between the controls in each frame; at the
moment tabbing can move the cursor to another frame, which is a bit
disconcerting when the user is filling out some address fields.
I've played around with the tab index properties manually and even tried to
set them using VBA.
However if I do this I find some controls actually disappear! To correct
this I have to use Auto Order.
Apart from this the app is working nicely but little things like are a bit

Is there a way to change the tabbing order without having the order on a list or local change also? I didn't take that into account when making the program, should have ordered all the control before wiring it all up :-/
Hi leachdor,When you change the tab order of a specific control in LabVIEW, it must then re-order the other controls in order to ensure that each tab order value is only applied to one control, and that there are only as many tab stops as there are controls. As such, there is no way to simply re-order a single control without modifying other controls.

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 ...Re: a2k

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 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 Controls, Painting and control order from the 2.7a relase notes

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...
