No SelectedTab property in TabControlAdv

I don't seem to be seeing a SelectedTab property in my TabControlAdv. I do have a Selected Index property, but don't know the index of the TabPage I want to select. I would think I could do it like "Me.TabControlAdvance.SelectedTab = TabPage" as this is how I could do it with the standard TabControl, but again I have no "SelectedTab" property. Help? Thanks.

Hi Jeff,

We do provide support for SelectedTab property in TabControlAdv. The following code snippet illustrates this.

//Set SelectedTab property of the TabControlAdv
Me.tabControlAdv1.SelectedTab = Me.tabPageAdv2

Please have a look at the attached sample and let me know if this helps you.

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products.


Best Regards,

Ah yes, you're right...thanks Golda. The weird thing is that "SelectedTab" wasn't showing up in my intellisense, however I seem to be able to use it fine.

This is strange - here is what is happening. I have a TabControlAdv control on a form called TCAdvWorkOrders. When I type "Me.TCAdvWorkOrders." I get my expected intellisense dialog. I scroll down to see the properties and methods available to me and I have "SelectedIndex" and "SelectNextTab" but no "SelectedTab" property shows up in between these two. Now If I start typing "selectedt" when I get to the "t" the property shows up in the list! I often rely on my intellisense list to quickly see what properties and methods are available for an object so it would be nice to know what causes this and fix it if possible. This is the first time I recall experiencing something like this, and perhaps it's a Visual Studio issue rather than a Syncfusion one, but any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks again,

Hi Jeff,

Sorry for the long delay in responding. I have tested the SelectedTab not shown issue in v4.4. In this version, the SelectedTab property is shown properly. Could you please let me know your Essential Studio version details?
