How get Ctrl-Tab for tabbed dialog control??
I have not figured out how to capture the keyboard strokes to enable the
user to move between the tabs of a tabbed dialog with CTRL-TAB. My
dialog has certain features that made it impossible to use the simple
Property Sheet (it has some extra buttons, and an edit control for a
name above (i.e. outside of) the tabbed units). Windows manages the
keyboard movement [Tabs and arrows] amongst all the controls both within
the child dialog boxes and the main dialog and that works fine; but
CTRL-TAB works the same as TAB. I've tried subclassing in various ways,

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

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 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.

Is it possible to put a tab control inside another tab control. I tried

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

only traps it if the tab itself has focus.
Anyway to trap this no matter what control on the form has focus?
I thought I read about this in the past, but I don't remember how.

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

The bttom selcetion in the pop-up is "Reoder controls in page..."
selecting this option will switch editing modes to allow you to

I just wanted to comment on the use of passwords at start up. I have a program in which I password protect the setup variables with the property nodes using a sub vi to enable / disable the 'visibility' of the controls. the reason for this is that the program is running a system in line with a production facility providing data on QC. Therefore it is never shut down or re-started. For me I have to control access while the software is running and LabView does a great job letting you do this by hiding and enabling certain controls.

How can I set the tabbing order of controls in a tab control on the

Right-click on the tab and select "Reorder controls In page" from the

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 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?

Just a suggestion,
the Tab Index for a container (Tab Page) is different than the Page

You might be thinking that the Tab Index is related to the Tab Pages.

The order of the controls on a page, form or other container control is
