hi,
Here is my problem:
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..

thank you

:)

Create a public property on the form:

In the declarations section:
Public OpenTab As Integer

Add the following code to your Form Load event:

Private Sub Form_Load()
  ssTab.Tab = Me.OpenTab
  Me.OpenTab = 0  'Resets OpenTab for the next time
End Sub

Then when you open the form, set the tab you need to open (if you don't specify a tab, tab0 will be set)

Form1.OpenTab = 1
Form1.Show '(will open with Tab1)

or

Form1.Show '(will open with Tab0)
0

You could just create a global variable (ie. declare it in a .bas module as somthing like OPENTAB) and then just set it as required. On form load then just :

Private Sub Form_Load()
  ssTab.Tab = OPENTAB  'which would be set on cmd_click to 1
  OPENTAB = 0          'reset to default
End Sub
