I have several controls on my front panel in LabVIEW and I want be able tab between them during execution. I know I can change the tabbing order but how do I skip a control?


To remove a control from the tabbing order, right click the control>>Advanced>>Key Navigation. This will then bring up the properties menu below:

 From here you can change the tab behavior to be "Skip this control when tabbing" to remove it from the tabbing order. 

Additional Information

This menu can also be accessed by right clicking the control>>General Properties>>Key Navigation Tab.
