Using Tabs in Visual Basic 2005

P: 2
Within a form I have added tabs. I noticed that when I make a change in the design view on one of the tab pages the changes do not take effect when I run the program. I thought perhaps there was some corruption, so I copied/pasted all my code and design view elements to a new application...and sure enough the same happened. No matter what changes I make on the design view in a tab, it does not execute.

Thank you!

Could you be more specific as to what changes you are applying to what controls and how you are attempting to change the design.
Also check you are viewing the right tab....

I know VB2005 express is having some troubles with tab controls, since you cannot block or disable a single tab in a control. But i haven't got any problem like the one you've described above.

Sorry, I'm using VB 2008 Express. Clarification: I'm making changes to the design view. For example, I'm moving labels, checkboxes, drop-downs, etc. When I go to run the application, none of these changes appear. When I stop debugging and return to the design view, the change I made are still there. There is a problem only when I run the application that these changes are not being committed.

Thanks.

Soundss like your vb08 express is not building before running the application......easy cure....(Hopefully)
Go to Build in the menu strip and click on build application before debugging
