To add:

Declare a tabsheet object, create it, and set its PageControl property to the pagecontrol component you want to add on.

    TabSheet1: TTabSheet;

    MyTabSheet1 :=TTabSheet.Create(Self);

Then modify it as you usually do,also you can delete it by
free method.

Sorry, the declaration should be:

MyTabSheet1: TTabSheet;

a small mistake :)

thats cool for creating somes new tabs but when I want to delete one, the program deletes the last tab available, so I want to be able to delete the one I want, the first, the third, whatever..

so the real problem is: i don't know how to call an object created at runtime.

Hi, one good method to do this is use an array of tabs,

   TabArray:array [1..N] of ttabsheet;

then you can use
   tabarray[i]:= TTabSheet.Create(Self);

   and tabarray[i].free; etc.
