Setting tab order in tab control

I have code which will allow my users to manipulate the tab order in a tab control.  I have no problem saving the order to a configuration file when the program exits, but can't seem to figure out how to change the order programmatically when the program starts.

Any ideas?

You need to set the TabIndex property of each control. The trick is, you will need to set the tab index in order beginning with the first control in the tab order, followed by the second item, etc.

I guess I didn't make myself clear... I need to set the index of the tab pages within the tab control, not the tab indexes.

in order to change the tab order, you need to remove the pages and re-add them in the correct order. notice that the content of the tabpages won't be lost.
