Tab control within another tab control

I am creating a form with a tab control containing 10 tabs. and what I
want to do is on only on of the tabs, I want a sub section of tabs. 
So what it ends up being is one main tab control with another tab
control embedded into only one of the tab pages.  The problem I am
getting is when I insert the sub section tab control into one of the
tabs from the main tab control, the sub section tab control appears in
every tab in the main tab control.  Can anyone help?  What do I need
to do so it only appears in one tab, not all.
Thanks

As you found, you cannot place a tab control on one of the pages of another
tab control.

However, you can place a subform on a tab control page, and the subform can
have its own tab control.

Paul,

You can't embed a tab control inside another tab control. Although the
subsection tab control appears to be embedded in all the pages of the primary
tab control, it is not; it is actually installed on your form as a second tab
control.

To get what you want, create a new form and install the subsection tab control
on the new form. Next open your original form in design view, and create a
subform control on the page where you want the subsection tab control. Select
the subform control, open properties to the Data tab and set the Source Object
Property to the name of your new form.

I hope this post is not repeated as the browser timed out when I hit
the "Post message" button.

My suggestion was to make sure the correct tab on the main tab control
was selected before you placed the sub tab control on the main tab
control.

HTH!

You may want to rethink your interface, Tabs within Tabs are confusing for
the user.

Check out the following site

It has some good examples of how to create user interfaces.

Tab control in one of the tabs of another tab control
One of my colleagues is working with a tab control. He has several tabs. He is trying to embed another tab control inside one of the tabs of the first tab control. He had placed the second tab control inside one of the tabs of the first tab control. But the problem is that the second tab control does not show up (unless one goes to the block diagram and double clicks the second tab control, only then does it shows up; when the vi is closed and reopened its again not there). I told him that I had never seen such functionality (a tab control inside another tab control) in any application but is it somehow possible. All this is required while the VI is not running and is being developed (of course it should work at run time, but this functionality must show while the VI is not running, i.e., this functionality should be non-programmatic.

Hi. Is it possible to put a tab control inside another tab control. I tried it several times, but for some reason this doesn't seem to work. Can someone confirm this, or tell me what the trick is.

Okay, thanks. Access could use a rewrite of it's event system imho. There are no top level application events to tap into, no 'after delete' event, record saves w/ a 'dirty=true', it's all quite ridiculous. I was hoping the new table events would be the solution but they come up w/ this 'data macro' crap where there doesn't seem to be any way to call your own code on the event.

Control + Tab between subforms on tab control pages ACC 2002
Greetings! What I am looking for is help trying to accomplish control + tab exiting subform #1 on page #1 and entering the first control (main form) on page #2. I've tried the following code, however it seems to "fire twice", placing me at the first control on subform #2 on page #3, totally skipping page #2. It seems to very briefly stop the control on page two, but keeps going. Hope that made sense. Key preview for subform is set to yes. This is a continous subform, so options to leave subform on last control won't work. That's why I'm trying to use control tab. I'd appreciate any suggestions. Private Sub Form_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer) If KeyCode = vbKeyTab And Shift = 2 Then DoCmd.GoToControl "txtZoningClass+" End If End Sub The problem is probably that you did not assign KeyCode = 0 in your handler. Thus, after your code runs, the keypress is also processed normally.

Tab Indexing in a Tab Control
Anyone know why when I set my tabs index in my tab control (I have 3 tabs on the control) the numbering gets messed up when I save the form changes? I thought each tab on the control had an independent tab index, I guess not. Marcus ****** Just a suggestion, the Tab Index for a container (Tab Page) is different than the Page Index for a Tab Control. You might be thinking that the Tab Index is related to the Tab Pages. The order of the pages is Page Index. (Right Click Page Order) The order of the controls on a page, form or other container control is Tab Index. (Right Click Tab Order) Tab, in this case means the Tab key on your key board. As you hit the tab key the focus moves from control to control based on the order of the index of each control and whether or not the control has it's Tab Stop property set to True. As far as I know, each Tab Page does have a collection of controls, where each control will have a Tab Index in that Tab Page collection. The indexes stay the same for me. That is, when I set the Tab Index for each control on a Tab Page, it remains the same after saving. If I change the Tab Index for each control on another Tab Page, it remains the same also, and it does not affect any other Tab Page control collection index. Hope This Helps ...

How to color tab of tab control when content of tab meets generic criteria
I have an MS Access form that uses a tab control with multiple tabs. On each tab, there are various fields. How can I color-- or if easier add some simple icon--to a particular tab (say tab 2 of 5 in the tab control) if a field on tab 2 meets some generic criteria like salary field is > 50000. I'm trying to give the operator a visual cue that tab 2 contains important data that should be reviewed--so the operator does not have to visit each tab to manually inspect all fields (which may contain only nominal values). If I could color tab #2 red or mark just tab #2 with an icon, then the operator would know to navigate to tab #2 specifically. Please include all VB/code and tell me which event to use/how to attach. Thanks Access gurus. You could create a Bitmap that you would set as the Picture property of the desired TAB Page.

Re: tabbing order in tab controls
Is there a way to change the tabbing order without having the order on a list or local change also? I didn't take that into account when making the program, should have ordered all the control before wiring it all up :-/ Hi leachdor,When you change the tab order of a specific control in LabVIEW, it must then re-order the other controls in order to ensure that each tab order value is only applied to one control, and that there are only as many tab stops as there are controls.&nbsp; As such, there is no way to simply re-order a single control without modifying other controls. Hi and thanks for the response. I think I may have explained the behavior i'm seeing wrong.&nbsp; Changing the tab order, you have those two little boxes the first showing the changed order number, and the black background one that shows what it was previously.&nbsp; Each time you change one, yep you have to change the order of the rest otherwise you might tab and select two fields at once!The behavior I'm not sure about though, is when I change them to the proper order on the front page, it changes my block diagram.&nbsp; For example if I have a cluster with 3 items in it, and I change the tab order of the items inside that cluster.&nbsp; Then if I had previously used an "unbundle" function prior to the tab order change, and it was all wired up with item 1 at the top, item 2 in the middle output, and item 3 as the bottom output - AFTER the change, those controls...

RBrandt at Hunter dot com Rick, I guess I hadn't thought about the fact that the tab needs to move to the front row as you have explained. Maybe it would be more intuitive to the user to highlight the tab by having its text go bold when selected instead of changing the tab row order. That way the user would always find the required tab in the same place instead of having to hunt for it.

Is there a "best practice" maximum number of controls that can be loaded on to a tab control before things start getting messy and sluggish? I'm asking for a "best practice" maximum number across all tabs and not the maximum number that is theoretically possible. I figure that trying to add lots of controls to lots of tabs must affect performance at some point. Any help is appreciated.

There is a maimum number of controls on a Form. Not sure about a TabControl. Think of it this way. A TabControl is just a handy way of toggling the visibility of a bunch of controls all at the same time. It likely has almost no affect on performance at all. Certainly not any that I have been able to perceive. -- Rick Brandt, Microsoft Access MVP Email (as appropriate) to...

Control Container inside a Tab Control
Is there a generic container that can go in a tab control? I cant seem to get a tab control (which can hold many types of other controls) to be contained by another tab control. My main form uses a tab control (8 pages). On each page I would like to have a few groups of controls (no tabs in the group, just buttons, combos etc). I thought the tab would be a great container, but I cant put it on the 'main' tab control. Any ideas? (Currently I'm using a naming scheme) TIA No. There is no control array, and you cannot insert a tab control on a page of another tab control. You can put a subform on the page of a tab control, and the subform can contain its own tab control. -- Allen Browne - Microsoft MVP. Perth, Western Australia.
