Access Form: disable Tab Control, but leave one control enabled


Is there a way to leave the tab control disabled, but to enable just one control (button)?

        Me.TabCtl183.Pages(0).Enabled = False
        Me.TabCtl183.Pages(0).Button.Enabled = True

if the button is in the TabControl, it will also be disabled, so the answer is NO.

place the button outside of the  tab control

Ok, so if I disable the form within the tabcontrol and leave the button outside the form,  I can disable the form itself.

Is there a way to refer to the control within the tab?

Me.TabCtl183.Pages(0).button.enable= true

OK nevermind, I got it.  

You can refer to the control directly.


you don't have to refer to the tab control first.
