will require a bit of Lua to get the tab change to send a
midiMessage.(off top of head…and without being specific)

you would associate the attribute ‘Called when modulator
value changes’ – often referred to here on the forum as
‘on value change’ or similar – with your ‘method’, which
would say eg: when this UItabs changes tab#, this midiMessage
command gets sent out.

so what i suggest at this point is to have a look at some
library panels, and familiarise yourself with methods that
send midiMessages, see what they look like. i know that
sounds really unhelpful, but you’ll pick up a fair bit just
by analysing a decent relevant example (which i can’t think
of right now!) – more than i could describe textually here.

it will go a bit like:
if tab0 is selected..(this progchange) will be sent out
elseif tab1 is selected..(that progchange) will be…etc.

and you’ll have to use the midi bytes for progchange, as
opposed to sysex or midiCC (which i forget right now).
you may be able to do it directly via an attribute in the
properties panel – but if you can do it via lua you get
more control quite often over what you want to happen.

which of course requires some first steps in lua…
expect to take a little detour for this, to get your
first method working.

good panels to look at: D-50, with the partial onOff
method, it sends a midiMessage. other ones i look at
regularly (for other stuff) are dasfaker’s xp30 panel,
Carl Licroy’s JX3P and JX8P panels, goodweather’s DSI
Pro2 panel, Possemo’s Matrix1000 panel (most recent one,
i think, have it here, don’t know if it’s the same in
the library) – huge amount of info in these, without
even really knowing how to program 😀

and i’ll have i little think about it. sounds like
you will just be calling that algorithm and then
having dedicated controls with the relevant parameter
names and ranges on each tab, if it’s like most
programmable multiFX, where each one offers different
function for same control layout depending on which
algo you’ve selected. er, it’s just that i’m trying
to think about something completely different at the
moment, need to ‘meditate’ upon it if i’m going to
get anything done today ..
