Hey everyone I have a question that really bugging me. I read an example on msdn about how to check to see if a specified tab has already been created so I code the following

     'Bring up a new tab that lets you set the properties for that event
        Dim myTabPage As New TabPage
        myTabPage.Text = gridActiveEvent.Item(gridActiveEvent.CurrentCell.RowNumber, 2) & ":" & gridActiveEvent.Item(gridActiveEvent.CurrentCell.RowNumber, 0)

Debug.Write(myTabPage)
        'Make sure tab wasn't already created
       If TabControl1.TabPages.Contains(myTabPage) = False Then

            TabControl1.TabPages.Add(myTabPage)
            TabControl1.SelectedTab = (myTabPage)
        Else
            Exit Sub

        End If
     


The code doesn't work and a new tab is created even though the tab already exists. Debug.wrote wrote this

TabPage: {09003C6DD447D81C:0}

Both times i ran this code, the the tabs are the same.


Thanks in advance for the help guys.

Dim myTabPage As New TabPage
Dim Check as Boolean
Dim PageText as String = gridActiveEvent.Item(gridActiveEvent.CurrentCell.RowNumber, 2) & ":" & gridActiveEvent.Item(gridActiveEvent.CurrentCell.RowNumber, 0)
        myTabPage.Text = PageText

      For i As Integer = 0 To Me.TabControl1.TabCount - 1
            If Me.TabControl1.TabPages(i).Text = PageText Then

It should be like this:

Dim myTabPage As New TabPage
Dim Check as Boolean
Dim PageText as String = gridActiveEvent.Item(gridActiveEvent.CurrentCell.RowNumber, 2) & ":" & gridActiveEvent.Item(gridActiveEvent.CurrentCell.RowNumber, 0)
        myTabPage.Text = PageText

      For i As Integer = 0 To Me.TabControl1.TabCount - 1
            If Me.TabControl1.TabPages(i).Text = PageText Then
                Check = True
                Exit For
            Else
                Check = False
            End If
        Next

Debug.Write(myTabPage)
        'Make sure tab wasn't already created
       If Check = False Then

            TabControl1.TabPages.Add(myTabPage)
            TabControl1.SelectedTab = (myTabPage)
        Else
            Exit Sub

        End If

After "Check = True", should be: "Exit For"

Or like this:

Private Function CheckIt(ByVal pText As String) As Boolean
        For i As Integer = 0 To Me.TabControl1.TabCount - 1
            If Me.TabControl1.TabPages(i).Text = pText Then
                CheckIt = True
                Exit For
            Else
                CheckIt = False
            End If
        Next
    End Function

Dim myTabPage As New TabPage
Dim PageText as String = gridActiveEvent.Item(gridActiveEvent.CurrentCell.RowNumber, 2) & ":" & gridActiveEvent.Item(gridActiveEvent.CurrentCell.RowNumber, 0)
        myTabPage.Text = PageText

Debug.Write(myTabPage)
        'Make sure tab wasn't already created
       If CheckIt(myTabPage.Text) = False Then
            TabControl1.TabPages.Add(myTabPage)
            TabControl1.SelectedTab = (myTabPage)
        End If
