Hi Experts,

I'm trying to load a form inside a tab page control.
I can do so if the form exists in the current project by using the following code.

Imports System.Reflection

Private Sub LoadTabForm(ByVal FormName As String)

        Dim frmTabForm As Form
        Dim tpType As Type

        tpType = Type.GetType(FormName)
        frmTabForm = Activator.CreateInstance(tpType)
       
        frmTabForm.TopLevel = False
        FormTabControl.TabPages(TabIndex).Controls.Add(frmTabForm)
        frmTabForm.FormBorderStyle = FormBorderStyle.None
        frmTabForm.Dock = DockStyle.Fill
        frmTabForm.Show()

End Sub

I'd like to call a form from another project in the same solution.
When i try it, it can't find it. Even giving it the full path.

Thanks,

That's ok, i found it.

For the form name, you must type in the whole path & form name.
e.g.

Main.UI.Form.MainForm, Main.UI.Form
