Putting Controls on a TabStrip

Putting Controls on a TabStrip

Question:
The number of Tabs are determined at run time. Control Array of text boxes are established on Tab 0 at design time. Each tab is to contain the same set of controls as built on tab 1. txtMytext(1)…and so on. I have not been able to LOAD subsequent arrayed controls onto the other tabs. They all end up on tab 0. How can I direct the controls to LOAD onto the correct tabs?

Answer:
The TabStrip control is not considered a container control; that is, you can’t put controls into it. It is simply a navigation aid. Any controls you have on the page should be put into panels or PictureBox controls. As the user clicks on a Tab, you can use the ZOrder method to bring the appropriate PictureBox to the top of the stack.
