Default tab control

Hi all

I'm working with 2 forms in C#.NET 2.0. In the 1st form, I've taken a string variable in which I'm storing some value. In the 2nd form I have a tab control with 2 tab pages. By defaut, when the 2nd form is loaded and becomes visible, the 1st tab page is activated. What I want is that if the string variable of the 1st form contains some(any) value, the 3rd/last tab page of the tab control should be activated as the 2nd form is loaded.

Please help!

Dear amey.agnihotri

TabControl has a property named SelectedIndex. You can set this property to index of any tab that you want (base on value of your string variable). You could do this just before showing second form on screen.

Form2 f2 = new Form2();
f2.tabControl1.SelectedIndex = strVariable == "OK" ? 1 : 0;
