A tab control can be treated like an enum, so your question comes down to: "Can I map a string value to an enum?" The answer is yes. Take the enum's array of strings, which can be accessed via a property node, and search the array for your string. See below pic:<img src=" http://www.yqcomputer.com/

- You might want to really rething your user interface. If I were a user asked to operate your VI my head would be spinning very quickly. Those tab controls are extremely unwieldy. Tab controls aren't meant to be used with 35 tabs.
