Happy New Year!

To bring in the New Year I wanted to share a bit of example code I have been working on.

Have you ever thought there could be a better way to set up a paged tab system for you front panel vi?

Ever thought that the 'folder' looking tab control was boring and dull?

Ever wanted to hide those tabs and use a custom designed page through control?

What do you do if you need to disable tabs while performing operations on a specific 'page' of your front panel?

What about Radio Buttons and how are they beneficial to controlling tabs?

Ever needed to have a specific page become the vi 'home' page without having to put it first in line?

This example code covers all these issues and I have tried to use the 'best practices' techniques in order to do so.

This was done in LabVIEW 2013 but programmatically it will operate the same in 2012.

Example code from the Example Code Exchange in the NI Community is licensed with the MIT license.
