How to build tabs for multiple control pages

I've been using Indigo since the v4 days but haven't really dug into the depths of its capability. I've read through the "Show Us Your Control Pages" forum topic and have some amazing inspiration. Now I'm attempting to build a series of control pages that would be "tabs" for each area of my house, e.g. bedroom, kitchen, etc., along with and audio, video and IP cam tabs. I can (and have) build individual control pages but I want to have a "master page" showing the floor plan of my house with tabs to click on to get to the detailed areas as described above. How do I go about doing that? Any help would be greatly appreciated. :oops:

Re: How to build tabs for multiple control pages

Have a master control page, with links set to each of the tabs.

Create a graphic or use a preset button and place it on a control page in the editor. Change the "client action" for the button/graphic to "advance to control page" or "replace control page" at the bottom of the editor window and select the control page that you want to open from the drop down box. Repeat for each tab on each of the control pages.

If you have created the tabs already, just create a transparent image and use that over the top of your image.

If you need some more assistance, please post a pic of your control page so we can see exactly what you are trying to achieve :)

This is my background for my "master control" page. I plan to use tabs to get to individual rooms, scenes, security cams, video and audio.

mat,
Thanks for the suggestion! I will attempt to create the tabs as you described. After I play around a bit, I'll post the "new" control page images. Thanks again! :D
