A tab control is a front panel structure, typically used cosmetically to group and simplify elements of the ui. The way VIs run is decided in the diagram. Can you clarify what you actually mean?

Subpanels.

I was initially thinking subpanels too, but then you would definitely not "copy and paste" code.... The question makes no sense. 😉

I am sorry if I could dont be clear

 

the subpanel diffrent than the tap control ,

 

the why I want to use tap control ? I have two diffrent tests (with the diffrent VIs) for the same sample , I want to run the first test when I press page 1 on the tap control and then I run the second test when I press page 2 on the same tab control .

It would be much more clear if you could attach your VI.

This is really horrible, but here's the basic idea.  Put the code for each test inside the Case Structure in the Event Structure handling the Value Change event.  If you're planning to write a State Machine you can have this event send the execution to a particular state.

VIs dont go on tab controls.

 

You would place regular controls and indicators that get wired to the subVIs on the diagram. You can use a case structure wired to the tab control terminal to change which subVI gets executed.
