How do I reference controls in in TabPage in C#

How do I reference controls that are in a TabPage of a TabControl?

 I have a TabControl called tabMain, and have created three TabPages called tabHazard,tabRisk,tabAction. Inside tabHazard I have a datagrid called dgridHazard. How would I reference this datagrid in code?

I thought it might be something like tabMain.tabHazard.dgridHazard but I'm not getting any joy.

You can refer directly to dgridHazard. There is no need to specify tab, because dgridHazard is the child component of your form's class..

Lol I just discovered that as your message arrived!! I don't understand this because I thought the dgridhazard would be a child object of the TabControl and not the main form.

Try this
DataGrid dgid = tabMain.Controls[0].FindControl("dgridHazard") as DataGrid;

if it does not work then 

DataGrid dgid = tabMain.Items[0].FindControl("dgridHazard") as DataGrid;
