Default TabsStrip and Multipage


I'm trying to use tabs in a form and I'm running into a lot of trouble. If I use TabStrip I can't find a way to get other controls to show up with a single tab. They always just fly on top (or under) the whole thing. I can do that with Multipage, but I need to write code for some of the controls and I don't know where to do it because I can't find the controls listed in the code editor. Any ideas?

I would really appreciate help with either of them!

Hi perignon,

when u use the TabStrip, did u use a container control, e.g PictureBox to contain the other controls like textbox and labels? let say u have 2 tabs, tab1 and tab2. Use picbox1 to contain the controls for tab1 and picbox2 to contain the controls for tab2. Then later at the tabstrip code:

Private Sub TabStrip1_Click()
Dim mintCount As Integer

    For mintCount = 0 To TabStrip1.Tabs.Count - 1
        If mintCount = TabStrip1.SelectedItem.Index - 1 Then
            picBox(mintCount).Visible = True
            picBox(mintCount).Visible = False
        End If
End Sub

this should work for TabStrip~
hope i helped u on tis! =)
