USING VB.NET VS STUDIO 2003

Hi I have a piece of code that populates a listview and it works fine. However I notice a quirk that occurs. Let me explain.

The lv is populated by the label control names of a selected tab in another form..form16. In Form16 there are 2 tabs that I have manually created and the user can create as many other tabs as they want.

When the user created tabs populate the listview they list in the order they were created from first to last. When the manually created tabs populate the listview they list as follows:

tab 1 - last to first
tab 2 - all over the place

I checked the Tab Index numbers and they are not the problem so I am lost. Please help.

Thanks

PB

    Private Sub Form16_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        Dim listitem As ListViewItem
        Dim ctrl As Control
        lsvTabSel.Items.Clear()
        lsvTabSel.View = View.Details
        lsvTabSel.FullRowSelect = True
        lsvTabSel.Columns.Add("Attribute", 200, HorizontalAlignment.Left)
        lsvTabSel.Columns.Add("Type", 100, HorizontalAlignment.Left)

        For Each ctrl In clsGlobals.Form2.TabControl1.SelectedTab.Controls
            If TypeOf ctrl Is Label Then
                listitem = lsvTabSel.Items.Add(ctrl.Name)
                Dim strLines() As String = ctrl.Tag.Split(vbCrLf)
                If strLines(0).Trim = "L" Then
                    listitem.SubItems.Add("Logic")
                ElseIf strLines(0).Trim = "T" Then
                    listitem.SubItems.Add("Text")
                ElseIf strLines(0).Trim = "N" Then
                    listitem.SubItems.Add("Numeric")
                ElseIf strLines(0).Trim = "A" Then
                    listitem.SubItems.Add("AutoNumber")
                ElseIf strLines(0).Trim = "D" Then
                    listitem.SubItems.Add("Date")
                End If
            End If
