Hi

I have a DataGridView on a TabControl that distorts wheb I alternate tabs as
shown in the image. I use the code below to get a gradient effect behind the tab page.
Not sure why this happens.

    Private Sub TabPage2_Paint(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.PaintEventArgs) Handles TabPage2.Paint
        Try
            Dim graphics As Graphics = e.Graphics()

            Dim rectBrush As New System.Drawing.Rectangle(0, 0, 310, 1200)
            Dim brush As LinearGradientBrush
            brush = New LinearGradientBrush(rectBrush, Color.FromArgb(46, 100, 160), _
                            Color.White, LinearGradientMode.Horizontal)
            graphics.FillRectangle(brush, rectBrush)
        Catch ex As Exception

        End Try
    End Sub

It sounds like you need to use the Invalidate method, to force a repaint.
