Changing tab order with SSTab

Changing tab order with SSTab

Changing tab order with SSTab

If I have four tabs and Tab C's tab property shows it as being tab 2 and I want to change this to tab3 how can this be done?

Tab A = 0
Tab B = 1
Tab C = 2
Tab D = 3

So basically Tab C becomes 3 and Tab D becomes 2. I tried changing the property and kept getting the message an Invalid property message.

Thanks in Advance.

RE: Changing tab order with SSTab

Is this an Access tab control? and if it is just click the tab control page, click properties, click format, go to page index and change the index to the value you want. If there is a page with the same index, it will swap places.

RE: Changing tab order with SSTab

The SStab has limitation, your suggestion would be the obvious thing to do but as I looked into this I realized that once the tabs have been designed one cannot for example swap positions. One can change captions and the last tab can be deleted but if you really need to change the order you can at best do a cut\copy\paste for your results. There are third party tools out there for tabs that may be better.
