Hi,

I start a new project

then draw an sstab control on the form.

I then select the second Tab of the tab control. (ie current tab = 2)


then I draw 2 command buttons on the tab control.

I stick the followig code in the from resize event of Form1.


SSTab1.Width = Form1.Width
Command1.Width = SSTab1.Width / 2
Command2.Left = Command1.Width


when the programme is executed

all seems well, the two command button can we seen when you select the second tab.

select the first tab

then resize the form

the command2 button shows up on the first tab.

It seem to have 'fallin out' of the tab  container.

Why does this happen?

Any hhelp greatly appericated

How SStab works ????


It simply change LEFT Property of controls in other tabs except current one to negative values to put them OUT SCREEN


Ur Code
Command1.Width = SSTab1.Width / 2
Command2.Left = Command1.Width


Gives
Command2.Left  a posiotive value always
So it pops on current tab

Should be
Command2.Left = Command1.left + SomeValueLessthanTabWidth
Hope I helped

Hi,
I couldn't repeat it except by adding one of the command
buttons to the form and moving it over the tab (inotherwords not actually on/in the tab although it looks like it is). That being said I have in the past experienced similar behaviour but with heavy duty controls
like Rich text boxes and treeviews where they inexplicably
started showing up on the wrong tabs, especially on form resize events. This appeared to be a repaint problem with the tab control, from memory doevents fixed it.
So in summary, first check it is IN the correct tab.
Otherwise try doevents.
Cheers,
walbury

the sstab controls deals with the Left property of contained controls. you can't paly with this property without some caution. see http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q187562
