"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It should be something along the lines of:

private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    this.tabControl1.SelectedTab = this.tabControl1.TabPages[1];

Open in new window

where button1 is the button on the first tab page.

Use something like this:
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;

namespace WindowsFormsApplication2
    public partial class Form1 : Form
        private TabControl tabControl1;
        private TabPage tab1;
        private Button button1;
        private TabPage tab2;
        public Form1()

        private void InitializeComponent()
            this.tabControl1 = new System.Windows.Forms.TabControl();
            this.tab1 = new System.Windows.Forms.TabPage();
            this.tab2 = new System.Windows.Forms.TabPage();
            this.button1 = new System.Windows.Forms.Button();
            // tabControl1
            this.tabControl1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(13, 13);
            this.tabControl1.Name = "tabControl1";
            this.tabControl1.SelectedIndex = 0;
            this.tabControl1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(259, 237);
            this.tabControl1.TabIndex = 0;
            // tab1
            this.tab1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(4, 22);
            this.tab1.Name = "tab1";
            this.tab1.Padding = new System.Windows.Forms.Padding(3);
            this.tab1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(251, 211);
            this.tab1.TabIndex = 0;
            this.tab1.Text = "tab1";
            this.tab1.UseVisualStyleBackColor = true;
            // tab2
            this.tab2.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(4, 22);
            this.tab2.Name = "tab2";
            this.tab2.Padding = new System.Windows.Forms.Padding(3);
            this.tab2.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(251, 211);
            this.tab2.TabIndex = 1;
            this.tab2.Text = "tab2";
            this.tab2.UseVisualStyleBackColor = true;
            // button1
            this.button1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(60, 62);
            this.button1.Name = "button1";
            this.button1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(75, 23);
            this.button1.TabIndex = 0;
            this.button1.Text = "button1";
            this.button1.UseVisualStyleBackColor = true;
            this.button1.Click += new System.EventHandler(this.button1_Click);
            // Form1
            this.ClientSize = new System.Drawing.Size(284, 262);
            this.Name = "Form1";


        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            tabControl1.SelectedTab = tab2;
