VB.NET Validate Controls on single tab page

Hi,

I have a windows form that has a TabControl that consists of 4 tab pages. Each tab page has its own navigation bar that allows the user to save the data on the tabpage. When the save button is clicked the controls on the form is validated using

Me.ValidateChildren()

Open in new window


However, this validates all controls on the form. Is it possible to only validate the controls on the tabpage that has focus when the save button is called and NOT the entire form?

Thanks, Greg

There is no easy was. You will need to check the Parent of each control (and maybe recursively if you have containers) to discover on which tab the controls are located.
