Tab order on tab control?

Hi all,

I have a form with a tab control. The first tab has a bunch of text boxes and I'd like to set the order in which they can be tabbed through like I do with all my other forms. But when I right click and pull up Tab Order all I see is the name of the tab control. :-(

Am I SOL?

thanks

Right click inside the tab control to pull up the controls in the tab. Right click outside the tab control to pull up the controls in the form.

You have to click on the tab for the particular page you're dealing with then pull up the Tab Order. And remember that moving the controls up and down is kind of hinky! Left click to turn the control name "black" then position the cursor arrow in the box to the left of the control name, then depress the left mouse button and move the control to the desired position.

Good Luck!

Thanks, I think this is the part that I was missing. You have to select the tab a certain way, such that all the controls are also selected, then you'll see them when you pull up Tab Order. Took me a couple tries but finally got it.

Thanks!
