Using Tabbed Pages on a Form

The first thing to remember is that Tabbed Pages are all part of a single form; think of it as a really long form turned on its side and folded on itself. Because it is all one form, references to contols on any page are done in the same manner as if they were all on one single screen.

Create a form in Design View. Goto the toolbox and click on the Tabbed Control icon; it actually looks like several manila file folders. Place it on your form and adjust the size to your liking. If you need more than the two tabbed pages it initially gives you, click on the tabbed control to select it. Goto Insert and click on Tabbed Control Page and another tabbed page will be added. Do this as many times as neccessary.

This is the really important part: when you go to add a control to a tabbed page, you must first click to select one of the pages, then add the control. Otherwise, the control will be added to the form itself, and will show through on all tabbed pages!
