My Control Gets Renamed When Dragging It into a Tab in LabVIEW

Issue Details

  • I have created two controls (Numeric, Boolean, String, etc) with the same name on the front panel. When I drag/move one of the controls into a tab control, LabVIEW appends another number to the end of the name. LabVIEW can handle controls that are named the same, so why is this happening?
  • Why does LabVIEW rename front panel controls that are named the same when one is moved into a tab control?


This is a known issue with LabVIEW and R&D is aware of the issue.

The current work around is to rename the control when it is placed in the tab control.
