Did you mean to post the code as a .vlibp?  Do you realize this removes the BD and makes the code only executable in that version of LabVIEW and no other?  At the moment this means only those with LabVIEW 2014 can run this VI.  On top of that the community might be curious about the implementation, and fixing any limitations or bugs but can't without the source.


VIs seem to be lacking documentation.  Which also makes me not sure what the difference is between the new and "Old" versions.


Do you intend on supporting tabbing into the element of an array control?


I also saw a strange bug where if you skip tabbing into a tab control, it sometimes won't let me tab out of it.  A VI is attached which shows this issue.


Still it is a very neat feature, and hope it can be improved so others can use it.
