    Question VB Tabs


    I am trying to add text boxes to my tabs but they are showing on all the tabs, not just one. I was told to just click and drag them onto the tab that I want and to not double-click but I get a circle with a line through it when I try dragging and dropping. I can't do it. Why?

    I'm sorry...but I'm new to VB. I don't know what you mean by tab tabs control. Please be more descriptive. I don't want to put any code in my form, just set up the components of my tabs (such as text boxes, command buttons, etc.)

    Why can't I drag and drop? I can't seem to find ANY good documentation to show me how to do this.

    Thank you.

    I do select a tab on the Tabs Control and when I do my text box moves with each tab. I put one component on a SStab and it shows up on all tabs. How do I make it show up on only one tab? Please help.

    I figured it out! You can't drag and drop the component onto the tab you want. You have to select the component on the toolbar then go to the tab you want and click and drag a box for the component and it will then appear.

    Thanks for your patience.
