Hello again.

I have a Form with a TabControl.  On that TabControl I have 7 or 8 pages and each page will have 1 to 4 Main subforms (not of each other - just of that Page of the TabControl.

I have some code that I only want to execute IF and only if a particular page and it's sub form are the ACTIVE tab that the user is viewing.

I have tried "If xxxx.visible=true then" but even though at the time I execute the doubleclick the form isn't visible because I have the Page set to visible = no at should have run it sees that the subform is "visible" so it does the 'then' and not the 'else' steps.

Any suggestion of another control trigger I can use... (also tried using a txtwait textbox's Got Focus and it didn't do the trick for me.)

use the Change event of the Tab Control

private sub TabCtl0_change()

select case me.tabCtl0.value
        case 0   'the first tab/page
             'your code here
        case 1
             'your code here

       case 8
             'your code here
     
end select


end sub

Are the "Case" 's the Page Numbers of each Tab???  I know they actually start at 0 that's why I'm wondering if
Case 0 means something like in english

"in case 0 changed then do this code"
"in Case 1 changed then do that code"

meaning where "Page 0 (tab) changed" or
where "Page 1 (tab) changed" etc...

Am I understanding that right?
