It should be nice to be able to create a "typedef enum" for the pages of a tabcontrol ...
So the modification of a tabPage label could be automaticaly propagated to constants ..
The problem is ... When you modify the pages labels, and if you use the constant value associated with the pages ...
The associated wires are then brocken ... They are not automatically modified
When you only want to modify the Label of a tabPage (For example to correct a mistake), the Vi will no more work !
An other idea would be to add a kind of "Caption" to the tabPages, in order to disociate the 'Display name' and the Variable name ...
Here a short example ...
Other Idea : (From the well known Roms)
It should be nice to create the TabPages of a TabControl automaticaty from a typedef enum, and keep the link between the two items.
=> Modification of the TabPages modifies the typedef enum
=> Modification of the typedef Enum, modifies the TabControl content
Right click on the tab, Advanced->customize.
Set the control as a type-def (not a strict typedef) and save.
Et voila your issues are solved.
If for every control and indicator you have to create a typedef in order to create
a professionnal application ... I think it is not very user friendly ...
Ok for the moment i also use to build many typedef's ... ( because it's an obligation ! )
Although I also use the typedef "trick" to synchronize the TAB control enum, I am wondering if there are any use case(s) where someone would want a TAB control where the enum is not a typedef (where it does not update when you edit the tab control)?
This behavior is quite confusing for LabVIEW beginner and maybe there is something that can be done to make it easier and more intuitive...

Maybe this can be expanded in a broader idea>
Easy creation of Typedefs. Right click on any control and select 'Create Typedef' which will ask for a filename. and a typedef is created.

You mean something like this? Should be pretty easy to adapt to controls.
This looks like a duplicate of this idea.
