Copying and pasting similar controls from one tab to another...

P: n/a

I'm using Visual Basic 6.0, and I want my app to be an SSTab, with each
tab having several similar controls. For example, I'll have a Text Box
and label in the same locations.

Can I put all my controls on the first tab and then copy the whole
configuration to the succeeding tabs? If so, how?

Thanks much.

Yes.
To select all the controls, make sure nothing is selected, hold down
shift then click and drag INSIDE the tab control.

You can then copy and paste as normal.

other group)

Thanks much, Dean. I'll give it a shot.

You'll have to explain what you mean by multipost. Thanks.
