This question came in last Friday:
I’m trying to code a windows form in vb.net 2005. In my form I have 2 TabControls and a command button. The button is in the first TabControl, so what I want to do, is that when I click the button, in the first TabControl, the second TabControl gets opened.
I’m assuming here that what is really being asked is, “How do I change the active tab in a TabControl from some other event, like a button click in a tab?”
Given a form that looks like this:
Create a Button Click event handler for “Button1” and set the SelectedIndex property of the TabControl to 1 to activate, “TabPage2”
Private Sub Button1_Click( _ ByVal sender As System.Object, _ ByVal e As System.EventArgs) _ Handles Button1.Click TabControl1.SelectedIndex = 1 End Sub
Private Sub Button1_Click( _ ByVal sender As System.Object, _ ByVal e As System.EventArgs) _ Handles Button1.Click TabControl1.SelectedTab = TabPage2 End Sub
