Tab Indexing in a Tab Control

P: n/a
Anyone know why when I set my tabs index in my tab control (I have 3
tabs on the control) the numbering gets messed up when I save the form

I thought each tab on the control had an independent tab index, I guess

Just a suggestion,

the Tab Index for a container (Tab Page) is different than the Page
Index for a Tab Control.

You might be thinking that the Tab Index is related to the Tab Pages.
The order of the pages is Page Index. (Right Click Page Order)
The order of the controls on a page, form or other container control is
Tab Index. (Right Click Tab Order)

Tab, in this case means the Tab key on your key board. As you hit the
tab key the focus moves from control to control based on the order of
the index of each control and whether or not the control has it's Tab
Stop property set to True.

As far as I know, each Tab Page does have a collection of controls,
where each control will have a Tab Index in that Tab Page collection.
The indexes stay the same for me. That is, when I set the Tab Index for
each control on a Tab Page, it remains the same after saving. If I
change the Tab Index for each control on another Tab Page, it remains
the same also, and it does not affect any other Tab Page control
collection index.

Hope This Helps
