Angry SStab in vb6

Having trouble with SStab in VB6. After I insert some labels and text boxes on the first tab, I then click the second tab, but the components for the first tab are still in the box, and same when I run it. What am I doing wrong or not doing ?

The quick easy answer is that the controls are contained by the form and not the SSTab control. To correct this, select the controls>CTRL+X>select the correct tab of the SSTab>CTRL+V.

When placing controls on the SSTab control, one would think that by selecting the control and then selecting a control from the toolbox to draw it on the SSTab is the correct way but more often than not, the controls is drawn to the form and not the SSTab control. Thus the need to cut and paste the controls to the SSTab.

Good Luck
