there were several sstab issues mentioned in the bug fixes in sp3.  none of them pertained to your solution exactly but since i am unable to produce the error i would recommend downloading sp3. its something that you would probably want to do at some point anyways.

you have two separate sstab controls on your form??  Or do you mean when you click the second tab on your first sstab control?  Sorry, still trying to get a picture of what it looks like.

i tried putting two datagrids on tab1 and when i ran it and clicked tab2 it didnt bleed through.  What version of VB are you using?  What service packs do you have installed?

well you should look into getting sp3 for vb6 anyways. lots of bug fixes it took care of.  i'll go check and see if this was one of them.  also, when you click on the 2nd tab, are any processes going on with the datagrids or is there basically no other execution being performed at the time?

i made their dimensions identical. of course i dont have any data in them, but i dont see how that would affect it.

Bleedthru happens when one of the controls isn't actually ON the tab! If you copy/pasted the 2nd grid is probably a child of the FORM and not of the tab control.

Simple test, move the tab control and see if the grid follows, if not, then the grid is contained by the form and not the tab control.

Select the grid, <Ctrl X> to get it off the form, select the tab control and go to the appropriate tab (make sure the "grip points" visible are associated with the tab control) and <Ctrl V> to paste it back down.

i tried copying and pasting as well but couldnt produce the bleedthrough.  Maybe i just got lucky.

Normally when you copy a control the focus automatically shifts back to the form. If you're not watching closely (and I do this all the time) when you hit <Ctrl V> to paste the new control it lands on the form instead of the tabs.
