I am using a tabstrip in VB4 32bit with an array of picture boxes. On form load I want to set the properties of controls in the picture boxes, eg:

TabStrip1.Tabs(0).picframe.opt1.value = True

but I get an error message which says:

"Index out of bounds"

Can you help?

The Tabstrip is a 1 based collection. Meaning the Tabs Collection starts at 1 not 0.

Try:

TabStrip1.Tabs(1).picframe.opt1.value = True

I realise the index in the tabstrip control's properties starts at 1, but I have seen reference to 'Tabs(0)' in connection with the tabstrip in a help file.

Anyway, I've solved the problem. I was trying to reference a control in a picturebox array on a tab strip. It appears that I do not need to include any reference to the tab strip or picturebox, but can instead reference it as:

FormName.ControlName.Property  - as normal
0

This question is answered. Perhaps someone could explain when the 'TABS(n)' function should be used.

The tabs(n) can be used if you want to set a property of a tab like the name.

tabs(1).Caption = "Tab 1"
