sstab vb

I have a project and depending on a login, I hide some tabs on an sstab
        SSTab1.TabVisible(1) = False

for some reason when I do this, there is a white block where the missing tab was.

How do I prevent this.

The underlying form is grey, the correct color.

Thanks

just give the sstab control the same color of the form then

you can visible ant tabs

i.e assign the sstab back color to the same coloe of the form you will not see any change but when you visible false
you will not see the color

you don't need to change color or any thing you just need to reduce tab preview by one so the  block of missing tab doesn't appear

for example you have a 3 tabs then you make the preview tabs 2 after making your desired tabsVisible to false

so you will make your tabpreview to the exact number of your currently visible tabs
as in the following example

so, you answer is

SSTab1.TabVisible(1) = False
SSTab1.TabsPerRow = SSTab1.TabsPerRow - 1

I hope that solve your problem

I tried you code snippet in my machine. But it works fine. Then y u wish to change your program? First try to install Service pack 6 for vs 6. then try the same thing.
I tested the sstab1's tabvisible property with the following code snippet

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Static i As Integer
    SSTab1.TabVisible(i) = False
    i = i + 1
End Sub


The above program works fine.

dear pradapkumar i think you missed the point
the problem will not appear to you unless you change the form background
then you will notice the missing blank tab

so the answer as i said before he can make the number of tabs preview equal to the number of visible tabs
or chnage the backgroung of sstab to same color of the form background

I missed to edit your snippise code

then your solution is one of two

1- The First solution

Private Sub Command1_Click()
  Static i As Integer
    If i >= SSTab1.Tabs Then Exit Sub        // to be sure ther's no run time error
    SSTab1.TabVisible(i) = False                 // Hide The Tab number i
    i = i + 1                                              
    SSTab1.BackColor = Me.BackColor
End Sub


2- the second solution

Private Sub Command2_Click()
SSTab1.TabVisible(1) = False
If SSTab1.TabsPerRow <= 1 Then Exit Sub
SSTab1.TabsPerRow = SSTab1.TabsPerRow - 1  
End Sub

I hope that solve your prblem  jackjohnson44

Dear Mostafa

Yes the problem comes when the form's background changed. But that blank box is appearing when all the tabs were changed as invisible.

dear pradapkumar
in case that all your tabs are invisible
then make the control itself SSTab invisible as follow

SSTab1.Visible = False
