Confused on which events to use for UserControl?

I have a Form that contains 2 tabs from a TabControl. On one of these tabs I have a User Control. What I'm trying to do is when the tab with the UC is the current tab, an event in the UC needs to fire so it can determine how to set certain properties of the UC and I'm not sure which event to use.

Thanks!

You can use what event you wish,
you only must check if the activetab is tab1.

Where should I be checking?  Once that has been determined...how do I get into the UC?

Here are the UC Events & Code. It's pretty simple really.

Imports System.IO

Public Class FileIndicator

    Private BH As New BusinessLayer.CalBusiness
    Private EH As New ErrorHandling.ErrorHandler

    Private ID As Integer = 0

    Private blnLoaded As Boolean = False

    Private ofd As New OpenFileDialog
    '
    '
    '
    Private Sub LoadTheComboBox()
        Dim dt As New DataTable

        Try
            dt = BL.GetEquipCerts(gstrID, gEquipCode)

            If Not dt Is Nothing Then
                If dt.Rows.Count > 0 Then
                    cmbHistory.DataSource = Nothing
                    cmbHistory.DataSource = dt
                    cmbHistory.DisplayMember = "calDate"
                    cmbHistory.ValueMember = "id"
                    cmbHistory.SelectedIndex = -1
                End If
            End If

        Catch ex As Exception
            EH.strRetVal = "FileIndicator/LoadTheComboBox() - " & ex.Message & "~E"
        End Try
    End Sub
    '
    '
    '
    Private Sub FileIndicator_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        Try
            cmbHistory.Visible = True

        Catch ex As Exception
            EH.strRetVal = "FileIndicator/FileIndicator_Load() - " & ex.Message & "~E"
        End Try
    End Sub

            EH.strRetVal = ""

            ofd.ShowDialog()

                gfileByte = Nothing
                gfileByte = System.IO.File.ReadAllBytes(ofd.FileName)
            End If

        Catch ex As Exception
            EH.strRetVal = "FileIndicator/btnAttachFile_Click() - " & ex.Message & "~E"
        End Try
    End Sub
    '
    '
    '
    Private Sub cmbHistory_SelectedIndexChanged(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles cmbHistory.SelectedIndexChanged
        Try
            If blnLoaded Then
                If cmbHistory.SelectedIndex > -1 Then
                    ID = CType(cmbHistory.SelectedValue, Integer)
                End If

        Try

        Catch ex As Exception

    '
    '
    '
    Private Sub FileIndicator_VisibleChanged(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Me.VisibleChanged
        Try
            lblHistory.Visible = gblnAttachmentsExist
            cmbHistory.Visible = gblnAttachmentsExist

            If cmbHistory.Visible = True Then
                RectangleShape1.FillColor = Color.LimeGreen
                Label1.Text = "Attachments Exist"
                LoadTheComboBox()
            Else
                Label1.Text = "No Attachments"
                RectangleShape1.FillColor = Color.Red
            End If

        Catch ex As Exception
            EH.strRetVal = "FileIndicator_VisibleChanged() - " & ex.Message & "~E"
        End Try

I got it working somehow. Not sure exactly how but I need to walk thru the code and get a better understanding of what happens under the circumstances.
