Is tabpage2 in focus when you try? Controls on tabpages not shown yet are not created unless that tabpage gets focus.

No TabPage1 is the one it has Focus...so is that the reason why? i know the theory but i imagine that because the controls are placed in the document outline in this siries it is possible to have an access

Try shifting focus to tabpage2 before accessing the checkbox. Otherwise, you can put this logic in tabpagechanging event and set the controls when tabpage2 gets focused by user.

Private Sub TabControl1_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles TabControl1.SelectedIndexChanged
        Try
            If DirectCast(sender, TabControl).SelectedIndex = 1 Then 'Is the Second Tabpage
                For i As Integer = 1 To 3
                    For Each ctl As Control In Me.TabPage2.Controls.Find("Page2GroupBox" & i, True)(0).Controls
                        If TypeOf ctl Is CheckBox Then
                            If Not DirectCast(ctl, CheckBox).CheckState = CheckState.Checked Then
                                DirectCast(ctl, CheckBox).CheckState = CheckState.Unchecked
                            End If
                        End If
                    Next
                Next

            End If
        Catch ex As Exception
            MessageBox.Show(ex.Message, "ErrorOccured", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Error)
