This has a tutorial on TabControl and TabPages. I don't have suggestions on code maintainance... but you will probably need to get the program working and then refactor the code a little.

Hi shahprabal,

Ok.

How to separate code from one tab to another tab, to make it easy to maintain?
For example for every tab we usually have:

1. Open Table.
2. Fill to Control.
3. Save
4. Delete.
5. etc.

Should we separate it into different class or others?
Or just put it all into the form itself?

Thank you.

This is how you will open any of the tab controls programatically:

TabPage is an object... so should add regions to the page the tab control is on.
How you organize it is upto you. You can have a region for each tab's code. You can also have separate regions for similar methods/events for each tab (eg load data).
Like you suggested you can also create a separate class that contains each tab page and code related to it. How much code you have and what part will most likely be modified is what you need to consider before picking an option.
