Hi
I have a user control with a tabControl
In this Tab Control I have I collection of tabPages.

Eg tabAddress,tabContact,TabAppointment

What I would like to do in my user control is to have a property that makes this tabs invisible or visible and then appear in the order I want.
Any help with an example will be appreciated!

I thought of  this in the user control but this will make the all control visible how can I make it so that only a particular tab is visible?

Public Property IsVisible() As Boolean
        Get
            Return mbIsVisible
        End Get
        Set(ByVal Value As Boolean)
            mbIsVisible = Value
        End Set
    End Property

Thanks
Gabriel

How about adding a second tab control to you control, tabControl2.  Make tabControl.Visible = false.  

You could then move the tab that you want to hide to it, and move it back to make it visible again.  This way you can still create your tab pages at design time using the ide.

System.Windows.Forms.TabPage pageToHide = tabControl1.TabPages[0];
tabControl2.TabPages.Add(pageToHide);
tabControl1.TabPages.Remove(pageToHide);

System.Windows.Forms.TabPage pageToShow = tabControl2.TabPages[0];
tabControl1.TabPages.Add(pageToShow);
tabControl2.TabPages.Remove(pageToShow);




Of course you could use your own collection (hashtable or something) to store the TabPages, you don't have to create an second invisible tab control.

Thanks for your reply.
But i think your idea could work however I am told to make a particular page in my tabcontrol visible of invible and reorder them when the developer uses my control.Ideally I should not be using 2 tabs.
Is this the only way to do it ?
How about to make that particular page visible or invisible by setting only a property.How could i do that in my usercontrol?
Sorry for being difficult

Thanks

if you make the second tab invisible, but setting its visible property to false, you should get the same effect, you would only see one tab control on the screen
