navigating sstab in vb6

I have an sstab form (sstMain) and it has 4 tabs.  The tab that opens when the form opens is index = 0.  I want some things to happen when I open another tab.  How can I do that?  I am having no luck...

Does the Tab Click Event not work?

Private Sub sstMain_Click(PreviousTab As Integer)
  MsgBox "The Index of the previous Tab was " & PreviousTab
  MsgBox "The Index of the current Tab is " & sstMain.Tab
End Sub

Open in new window

YEah that works...so how do I write code there based on which index is selected.  If it is 0 I want to execute some code...if it is 1 some other code.  Or should I write all of the code in the form load and just let it display based on what tab is opened?

Use a big select statement or If statements:
Private Sub sstMain_Click(PreviousTab As Integer)
  Select Case sstMain.Tab
    Case 0: Call Tab0()
    Case 1: Call Tab1()
    Case 2: Call Tab2()
    ...
  End Select
End Sub
Private Sub Tab0()
  'Things to do for Tab 0
End Sub
Private Sub Tab1()
  'Things to do for Tab1
End Sub
...

Open in new window

Private Sub sstMain_Click(PreviousTab As Integer)
  If sstMain.Tab = 0 Then
    'Things to do for Tab 0
  ElseIf sstMain.Tab = 1 Then
    'Things to do for Tab 1
  ...
  End If
End Sub
