How do I add tabs to an SStab control in VB6 at runtime? I have the SStab control added to my form, named SSTab1, which has 3 tabs and I'd like to add a fourth.

I tried this to no avail:

Load SSTab1.Tabs(4)



Also, how do I determine the total number of current tabs at runtime? I would expect something like this, but haven't been able to find anything that works:

intNumofTabs = SSTab1.Tabs.Count

Beauty. Thanks both. The first answer by vinnyd79 shows how to create a 4th tab, and increase the number of tabs per row, so that all 5 tabs show up on the same row.

The second answer by jayeshshah shows how create one more tab than the current number of tabs and how to activate the tab created. Both solutions were helpful.

Now I see why vinnyd79 has so many points, that was quick!
