How Can I Access the Same Control/Indicator on Multiple Tabs of a Tab Control?

Primary Software:
Primary Software Version: 2010
Primary Software Fixed Version: N/A
Secondary Software: N/A

I would like to access the same control or indicator on different tabs of a tab control, such as a stop button. How can I do this?

To put the same control or indicator on multiple tabs, you can complete the following procedure:
  1. Select your control/indicator and then move it outside of your tab control.

  2. Select your control/indicator to then select Move to Front from the Reorder Menu.

  3. Select your tab control and then select Move to Back from the Reorder Menu.

  4. Select your tab control and move it over your control/indicator.

Your control/indicator should now have a black shadow to indicate that it is present on all tabs. This control/indicator will be represented as one icon on your block diagram.
