I want to use a tabcontrol for the first time,but am not sure what's the best way to use them. Let's say I want to make a TAB with Books and one with Multimedia (these are ParadoxDB files I already have. NB I know how to make DB navigation/maintenance applications,but not how to use them TABs correctly. Thanks!

If you wanted to this sort of stuff then you would have to add an 'onChange'-eventhandler that updates the page at runtime.

For your aims, the PageControl-component would be the best suitable component. You'd only have to place a PageControl on your Form then press 'Insert' for a new page (or press the right mousebutton).

The main difference between Pagecontrol and Tabcontrol is that the tabcontrol is like one object (one page) which has to be updated at runtime whilst the pagecontrol-pages can be designed at designtime(several pages).
