    I want to make a user interface that uses the "TabStrip". My problem is I can easily place objects on the front tab side. But I am unable to see the second tab's side to allow me to add objects onto there. In other words, Let's say I added a command button and a text box on the first tab's side and now I need to work on adding things onto the seconds tab's side. How do I view the second's side so I can place things on it. Side one's command button and textbox remain in the view. I am using VB5 Enterprise Edition. This is hard to explain, I hope this is enough information.

    Thankyou for your time and effort,
    Daniel Christie

    The TabStrip doesn't treat each Tab as a seperate Sheet, so any Controls you place on there will appear no matter which Tab is selected.

    You could get around it by placing the Controls for Each Tab in a Container Object, (ie. a Picturebox), then make the Container Visible or Invisible, depending on which Tab is selected, or, you can use the Tabbed DialogBox Control, which does have seperate Sheets for each Tab.

    I appreciate your help,

    Go to Components and check Microsoft Tabbed Dialog Control 5.0. Should do the job.
