it there a way to switch through tab bar items?

I have an app using a tabbarcontroller and on one view there's a button.  When the user clicks the button, i want the next tab to become active just like the user clicked the next tab.

You can change selectedViewController property of UITabBarController.

"selectedViewController
The view controller associated with the currently selected tab item.

@property(nonatomic, assign) UIViewController *selectedViewController
Discussion
This view controller is the one whose custom view is currently displayed by the tab bar interface. The specified view controller must be in the viewControllers array. Assigning a new view controller to this property changes the currently displayed view and also selects an appropriate tab in the tab bar. Changing the view controller also updates the selectedIndex property accordingly. The default value of this property is nil."
