Hi Experts,

I've been struggling with this all day, and i just can't figure it out.  I have a form with a tab control...i have it set to multirow and yet, all the tabs are displayed across the screen.  I want to make this multirow, it's too much scrolling for my client otherwise.  In fact, i wouldn't mind also making it anchor to the left instead of top on the form.  Does anyone have an idea why it wouldn't be automatically arranging the tabs on two rows since i have the property set to multirow?

Thanks :-)

how many pages do you have?

set the tab fixed width to say 1 and see if they will wrap

No, i have to set it to 2.5 just to get it to wrap, i don't really want them that stretched out, is there any other option?
Thanks :-)

well, the wrapping depends on how wide your tab control is.

Ok, just wanted to make sure i wasn't missing something, and there wasn't a better way to control that.  I guess it's not as functional as it could be....would be neat to have full control over the placement of those tabs.  Thanks Capricorn1, have a great evening :-)
