change position of tab in SSTAB

Possible via IDE or with code to change the position of tab 5 with position of tab 0?

RE: change position of tab in SSTAB

SSTab is a pretty old control, and doesn't directly support such functionality.

However the way it is implemented (thanks to its age) actually gives you a way to achieve this. All you need to know is that the SSTab has only one container. It handles multiple tabs by moving controls on and off the screen. And it does this by adding/subtracting 75000 to the Left property for each and every control on the tab.

So all you need to do is modify the Left property yourself. And you can make this easier on yourself by putting all the controls in a frame, then you just have to modify the Left property of the Frame.

But I illustrated this for you ((the basic concept, that is) in your thread222-1802712: SSTAB colorize font on single label tab
