SSTab within vb6

I'm using a case statement within my sstab_click routine. But when I click on the tabs I get a different case statement each time, How do I know which current tab I am on within the sub if it changes all the time. Or how do I make them so that they wont change.

code:

Private sub sstab_click(currenttab as integer)
dim tabrte as integer
tabrte = currenttab
select case tabrte
     case 0
        action statements
     case 1
        action statements
     case 2
        action statements
end select
exit sub

Use the tab property to find the currently selected tab.

Private Sub SSTab1_Click(PreviousTab As Integer)
    Select Case SSTab1.Tab
    End Select
End Sub

Hmm... I thaugth that the click event had the previousTab as it's parameter, not the CurrentTab.... (i'm using VB4, so this may have changed).
You can retrieve the currentTab by calling the "Tab" property of the SSTab control. this property returns the index of the current Tab.

Tell me what happened

Trillo, actually it does have previous tab, I was just trying to get this to work. It didn't seem to work with the previous either. I did finaly use an if statement witht he .tab = 0, 1, or 2 and that seemed to work. I'll change it back to a case statement and do what Mirkwood suggested.  Thanks
