Hi,

I'm using VS.NET 2005.  When the user makes a selection from the tab control, I would like to load a combo box with specific data based on which tab page was clicked.  How do I create a tab control click event to identify which tab page was selected?

Thanks,
Denise

Hi DeniseGoodheart,

You could use something like this (note you'll have to add multiple TabPageX.Click subs):

    Private Sub TabPage1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles TabPage1.Click
        Me.loadComboBoxVals("TabPage1")
    End Sub

    Private Sub loadComboBoxVals(ByRef page As String)
        If (page = "TabPage1") Then
            ... load combobox values here for page 1
        ElseIf (page = "TabPage2") Then
            ... load combobox values here for page 2
        End If
    End Sub

Cheers,
Hillwaaa

try like this

Private Sub tabcontrol1_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles tabcontrol1.SelectedIndexChanged
        Try
            If Me.tabcontrol1.SelectedTab.Equals(Me.tabPage1) = True Then
            msgbox("Tab page1 selected")
            Else
            msgbox("Other Tab page selected")
            End If

        Catch ex As Exception
           
        Finally
           
        End Try
    End Sub

Ah yes - my solution uses the wrong event - use the tabcontrol.SelectedIndexChanged as appari says.  You can still pass things out to a sub to load the combobox values if you want to keep things neat, but that's up to you :)
