What Event to check upon initial viewing of a TabPage?

I have a Windows form that contains a TabControl with multiple tabpages.

The first time a User enters the form, what is the initial state of a TabControl? What Event of the TabControl can be checked?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The TabControl is a container for TabPage controls.

To your question, "The first time a User enters the form, what is the initial state of a TabControl?", by default the TabPage at index 0 will be selected.

To your question, "What Event of the TabControl can be checked?", The TabControl documentation can give all the events and properties that can be used.

That's just it...I'm not sure which Event can fire when the TabControl is initially displayed. It doesn't have a Load Event.
Fernando SotoRetiredCommented:
The TabControl does not automatically fire off an event when first displayed.

What do you want to happen when it first is displayed?

I just figured it out. It had nothing to do with the state of the TabControl. How should I close this thread?
