TabPages keep changing order

I''m using the TabControlAdv and my tab pages will reorder themselves in a random order about 40% of the time I run my form in debug mode. I then have to reorder using the TabPage collection editor. Once I''m done working on my form and check it in, the problem will not occur until I have to work on it again. Has anyone run across this and have a solution? Thanks, Todd

Hi Dinis, 

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 

We have checked your query “TabPages keep changing orders in TabControlAdv” and we are unable to reproduce the reported issue. We have created a simple sample in which four tab pages are added when Form is loaded and further more tab pages are added during run time, but the application worked properly without tab re-ordering . Please refer the below sample and video for same. If we are missing aby details please let us know otherwise if you can modify the attached sample to reproduce the issue and revert it back , it will be helpful for us to proceed further.

Still happening to me as well ... is there a way to programatically reorder the tabs?

Hi Greg,

I faced this issue, as well. The solution I found was to clear the tabpage collection: 


Then, I added the pages in the order I wanted them shown.


I placed these into my form load event, so that this happens on launch at runtime and that fixed it.

when you do that do you have to programatically create all of the controls contained within those tabpages?
