Tab Control VB.net

Hi ,

I would like to stop the user from clicking any control in a spacific TAB if a certain condition exists is this posible , the alternative is to add that condition check to every control on the tab just the one would be so much easier

Hi MichMat,

Once you selected that specific tab, you can determinate if the controls are accessible or not, and use a loop on then to enable/disable. It easy that way :)

Im not following you , how would I determine that the controls are accesible ?

the tab control has 5 tabs I would like to do this only with the controls of tab 4.

When you select the tabpage4 you can decide (based on some criteria) if the controls are enabled or not. You can place all them inside a container (like a panel) and that way you just have to enable/disable the container and not all.

    Private Sub TabControl1_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles TabControl1.SelectedIndexChanged
        ' 3 = tab 4
        If Me.TabControl1.SelectedIndex = 3 Then
            ' Decision if enables or disables the controls
        End If
    End Sub

Open in new window

Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

I actually have them in a group box would that be suitable ? and how would I disable that ?
