{
    protected Menu menu1;
 
    protected override void OnPreInit(EventArgs e)
    {
        menu1 = new System.Web.UI.WebControls.Menu();
        menu1.CssClass = "menubody";
        menu1.StaticMenuStyle.CssClass = "tab";
        menu1.StaticSelectedStyle.CssClass = "tab2";
        menu1.Orientation = Orientation.Horizontal;
        menu1.Items.Add(new MenuItem("Tab A", "0"));
        menu1.Items[0].Selected = true;
        
 
    }
 
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

I would take a look at the output of both methods to determine if inline CSS (style="" as an HTML tag attribute) is not being added as they would have precedence of a CSS class.

I would try changing:

    protected override void OnPreInit(EventArgs e)

to this:

    protected void Page_Init(object sender, EventArgs e)

The reason being is that it is most likely pre-init is too early to set property values. However when it would be done in the ASPX it most likely handles the order of initialization in the engine differently the when it is defined in the code behind.

The ASPX page is not pre-compiled where as the code behind is. So they are definitely handled differently up to a certain level.
