Connect a manager control to a visible control to display sequences or reports, present a list of items to users, invoke an application command, or display information about the current state of the application. When you connect controls, you do not need to write the majority of the source code you usually write for the application to update the user interface and respond to user input.
You can make view connections, list connections, command connections, and information source connections, depending on the type of manager control and visible control you connect.
Refer to the NI TestStand User Interface Controls Reference Poster for an illustration of control connections in a sample user interface.
