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.
