Is it possible to select a TabSheet in a PageControl by using the keyboard?

You have to use the TAB key to set the focus on the page control, and the use left/right arrow key to go through the tabsheets.

Or use MyPageControl.activePage:=myTabSheet;

You could use onKeydown event on the form (also form has to have KeyPreview set to true).
Here is sample code
if key=VK_F2 then PageControl1.ActivePage:=TabSheet1;
