hi, I have a SSTab control on a form, I tryied to code to open the form with the appropriate  tab that I want. For example, I have a line somewhere like : load form1.
form1 has 1 SSTab control  with tab1, tab2. Usually, tab1 will be automatically showed up when the form loads. Now I want to code after load form1 to open the form1 with tab2 showed up. How do I do that?

Thank you very much and have a nice day!

:)

Private Sub Form_Load()
    SSTab1.Tab = 1
End Sub

NB the tabs are numbered 0,1,2, ....

i.e tab1 = 0 ,tab2 = 1

deighton:
what happen in this case? I forgot this point.

in form1
Private Sub form_load(0
     sstab.tab = 0
end sub

in form2
Private Sub cmd1_click()
     load form1
end sub

Now when I click cmd1, it will load form1, but with tab 0. where should I code to open the form with tab1 without changing the line sstab.tab = 0?

sstab.tab = 0 in form_load can't be changed because in most cases, the form will be opened with tab 0. And in some other cases, It need to be opened with tab 1. That is my real question..

I am sorry for that.

thank you again

I would use a global Boolean variable as below

'in Form2 declarations
Public bTab1 As Boolean

'In form2

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    bTab1 = True
    Form1.Show
End Sub

'In form 1
Private Sub Form_Load()

    If Form2.bTab1 = True Then
        SSTab1.Tab = 1
    Else
        SSTab1.Tab = 0
    End If
    Form2.bTab1 = False
   
End Sub

You'll find that the SSTab opens by default where you last left it at design time. By setting the {tab=} in code, you can force it to be consistent in each context you open the form.

Hope this helps.
