Changing Tab Order

I am working on an app that uses an Advanced Tab Control. Inside are seven tab pages. Based on which tab page is selected, I open a different editable data grid in each. To determine which tab grid to populate I use the "SelectedIndexChanged" event handler. My problem is that the tab pages want to randomly change order making "SelectedIndexChanged" usless. I read thru previous posts and saw that the order the tabs are created is the order they want to reorder themselves to. I don''t believe that is the case. But I see there is no fix as yet. Then can I work around the problem another way? Is there a reference I can use to test for the text on the tab rather than numeric order? Thanks in advance!

I have been playing around and believe this will be a work around. Me.tabMain.TabPages(Me.tabMain.SelectedIndex()).Text() This returns the text on the tab for the selected tab page. If I change my case statement to the text, reordered tabs are not a problem. Any comments? >I am working on an app that uses an Advanced Tab Control. Inside are seven tab pages.

Hi Tom, Please refer to the following KB article for information in this regard : Why is the position of the tab pages in the tab control not the same during runtime and design time, sometimes? Let me know if I have not understood your problem correctly. If so, a test sample showing the same would be of great help here. We appreciate your cooperation. Regards, Guru Patwal Syncfusion, Inc.
