Putting frames on a tab

Hey,

This is what I have:
An SStab with 3 tabs called menu
The second tab contains a tabstrip with 1 tab calles menustats
On that 1 tab there is a frame and on that frame there are some labels

Now, I have a function that:
1) creates a tab in the tabstrip
2) creates a frame
3) create the new labels

those new labels are put on that new frame
But now that new frame should be put on the new tab
and that wont work

How can I fix that?

The new frames are loaded onto the form and are called frastats(0) --> frastats(number)

I tried:
frastats(id).container = menustats
I tried frastats(id).container = menustatstabs(id)
...


There is one more thing:
when I compile my program with the first tab of the SStab selected I dont see the created frames on the newly created tabstrip tab
But when I compile when the second tab of the SStab is selected, it does work.

This is the main part:

        menustats.Tabs.Add id, ,newname
        Load frastats(id - 1)
        frastats(id - 1).ZOrder
        ' Position the frame over the TabStrip.
        PositionFrame frastats(id - 1)

with positionFrame:

Private Sub PositionFrame(ByVal the_frame As Frame)
Dim frame_left As Single
Dim frame_top As Single
Dim frame_width As Single
Dim frame_height As Single

    frame_left = frastats(0).Left
    frame_top = frastats(0).Top
    frame_width = frastats(0).Width
    frame_height = frastats(0).Height

    the_frame.Move frame_left, frame_top, frame_width, frame_height
    the_frame.Caption = ""
End Sub

Have you tried placing ALL items into "Pictures" on each tab as the Parent Container?  This has worked well for me in the past.  Another thing you can do (it's not pretty but it works), is to move the above mentioned Pictures "outside" the tabs and simply use the Tab Index (1-n) to set the"visible" properties of the picture boxes.

Hope this helps.

Activate the tab where you want the frame to appear before you set frastats(id).container = menustats.

frastats(id - 1).Container = menustats.Tabs.Item(id).Index
' No error, but doesnt work

menu.Tab = 1
menustats.Tabs.Item(id).Selected = True
frastats(id - 1).Container = menustats
'error

        menu.Tab = 1

        menustats.Tabs.Item(id).HighLighted = True
        frastats(id - 1).Container = menustats.Tabs.Item(id).Caption
'error: type mismatch if my name isnt a number

        menu.Tab = 1
        menustats.Tabs.Item(id).Selected = True
        menustats.Tabs.Item(id).HighLighted = True
        frastats(id - 1).Container = menustats.Tabs(id)
'error: type mismatch if my name isnt a number

        menu.Tab = 1
        menustats.Tabs.Item(id).Selected = True
        menustats.Tabs.Item(id).HighLighted = True
        frastats(id - 1).Container = menustats.SelectedItem
'error: type mismatch if my name isnt a number

        menu.Tab = 1
        menustats.Tabs.Item(id).Selected = True
        menustats.Tabs.Item(id).HighLighted = True
        frastats(id - 1).Container = menustats.SelectedItem.Index
'no error, but doesnt work

        menu.Tab = 1
        menustats.Tabs.Item(id).Selected = True
        menustats.Tabs.Item(id).HighLighted = True
        Load frastats(id - 1)
        With frastats(id - 1)
            .Container = menustats.Tabs(id)
            Stop
        End With
'Error: type mismatch if my name isnt a number


But what I notice when I use one of the no-errors above is that:
    MsgBox frastats(0).Container
    MsgBox frastats(1).Container
    MsgBox frastats(2).Container

gives 0 every time, so I guess this just doesnt do a thing .container = tabs(id).index

I found it myself, I used the SStab instead of the Tabstrip, and I built in a wait loop
Now it works just fine :)
