I am tryig to set the tab order for a series of controls on multiple tabs.
I am having trouble setting the TabIndex on the TabControlExt control and the child controls for each tabpage.
When I am using the View/TabOrder option in VS.NET, I am not able to switch between tabs in the designer. I also cannot seems to set the TabIndex for each page within a tab. I can set the index for the child controls, by turning View/TabOrder on and off and switching the tab page in between, but the actual order of the TabIndex for the tabpages seems to be inacessible.
I have tried overriding the form level ProcessTabKey procedure and using the GetNextControl or the SetNextControl methods, but these methods seem to work within a certain TabIndex level. i.e. 0.1, 0.2, 0.3 rather than moving to the child controls on a tab, 0.1.1, 0.1.2, etc.
Any thoughts or suggestions? (other than implement all of the tab processing manually)

The TabIndex for a Tab Page is not exposed because the tab page itself will never take focus (only it's children) and the TabIndex doesn't determine the order of the tabs.
I am not quite clear as to what you are trying to implement here. Could you please elaborate, maybe attach a sample?
