Replacing The Tab Control's Tabs With Custom Tabs Made In Photoshop

Mar 16, 2009

I was wondering if there was a solution to replacing the tab control's tabs with custom tabs made in Photoshop. I know there are plenty of super expensive programs that can do it, but I was wondering if there was a way to do it programmatically. I was thinking that maybe it could linked in some way with a .DLL?


Making The GUI A Scrollable Window - Tabs Get Built, Displayed And Disposed As The User Scrolls Left And Right Through The Member Tabs?

Mar 6, 2009

My code is basically a file parser/editor and it handles most files fine as they hold a handful of records concerning family members. However there are a few files that crash when trying to deal with them. Here is the problem.Each family member record creates 3 tabs that hold an average of 3 group boxes each. Each group box holds an average of 3 text boxes.So each member record creates 3x3x3 = 27 text boxes and some files get up to 289 family members which = 7803 text boxes.

The problem is the rare file with 400+ member records = 10,800 text boxes which causes a crash due to using up all the window handles. Each member has a separate tab page (with 3 subpages) but really only a dozen or so member pages are visible in the GUI with scroll arrows to move through them so I was thinking of somehow making the GUI a scrollable window so the tabs get built, displayed and disposed as the user scrolls left and right through the member tabs.

The files are parsed into a 3d list DataList(x,y,z) where x is the page number, y is the group box number and z is the text box number. So all the data is available. The code then traverses MyList and builds GuiList(x,y) where x is the page number and y is the groupbox number with all the textbox.text linked to MyList(x,y,z) locations so all text changes are reflected in the MyList.

I already have a memberCount variable and I am thinking of building, say, the first 30 member tabs with the middle 10 being visible in the GUI. If the selected tab > 20, then dispose of the first 10 tabs and create tabs 30-40.I am thinking I will keep all the member tab pages so I don't have to deal with inserts and indexing problems but just dispose all the group boxes and text boxes for tab pages out of view. I already have a deep clone sub that clones members when the user wants to add a new family member and I am thinking I will have to add something similar when a tabpage is passed in for disposal, it traverses and disposes each text box, then disposes the group box for each group box on the tab page.Additionally, another routine will rebuild the group boxes from the data held in MyList(x,y,z) when a tabpage(x) is passed in.

Hide Tabs On Control?

Mar 16, 2009

I have a setup/configuration utility that I am making. The form is split the left side has a nodeview that allows the user to select what they want to setup/configure, and the right side displays that screen.

I figured the easiest way to switch between those screens is to place them in a TabControl, but I dont want the tabs to display when its compiled. How can I turn off the display of the tabs?

ActiveX Control - Trapping Tabs

i am creating an activeX control... in this control i want to manage what the tab key does. i may a user interface that allows tabs in the textbox or it might move the user to the next screen. i have everything working in the IDE, but when my activeX is loaded into the 3rd party application the tabs no longer trigger the key down event. i assume this is because the parent application has tab stops is there a way on a control by control basis to stop the normal execution of tabs?

Removing Tabs With User Control From Tabpage

Nov 19, 2009

I have a application with a tabcontrol. I dynamically open new tabs on which there is a custom control which is made of a graph and a datagridview with data. I fill this from a csv file. when I open few tabs like this my application memory goes over 120 MB. When I remove the tab I call the dispose on the custom control and a dispose for the tab. But the memory stays where it was (120+MB). It goes down only if I minimize the program. And when I show it again its around 10MB.

VS 2008 Forms - Tabs And Control Collection

Nov 12, 2009

Using 2008 Forms. I have a groupbox consisting of several textbox's and a push button. I put this groupbox in a control collection in order to validate each texbox when the push button is clicked.

The code to do this is as follows:
Private Sub bn_updateadditem_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles bn_updateadditem.Click
Dim InvalidInput As Boolean = False
Controls.AddRange(New System.Windows.Forms.Control() {Me.GroupBox1})
Dim ctrl As Control
For Each ctrl In Controls
[Code] .....

This worked great. However when I moved this groupbox with all its controls onto a tab, the groupbox contents disappeared from the form after the control collection is created and contents validated (per above code).

VS 2008 Reducing The Size Of The Tabs On A Tab Control?

Jun 28, 2011

I noticed that when using a single letter as the title on a tab of a Tab Control , the tab is bigger that it should . Look on this example :

The above Tab Control behaves normally because the text on each tab is sufficient to keep it big enough . The lower Tab Control , however , has its tabs too big . Is it possible to reduce its width ? I saw there is an ItemSize property of the Tab Controls , but unfortunately I can only modify the height of the tabs . No matter what value I set for its width , the width remains always the same (and larger than it should) ...

.net - Load The Tabs Dynamically?

Jan 13, 2010

i m trying to load the tabs dynamically.(Using AjaxToolKit). Firstly, when i hit button1 on pageload, it loads tab1() (works good) and when i hit button2, itloads up tab2() All these tabs are ascx pages. In tab1 i m loading WebUserControl.ascx. it works okay.


1) When you runthe code, first click on button2, it doesn't load tab2 dynamicaly but it does when u hit button1 for the first time.

2) Repetitive clicking on button1 or button2 should load the same tabs next to eachother again and again but it doesn't

3) Thirdly, the main issue is that I m tryin to load another .ascx on loadtab2() which should have webparts in it. I should be able to load an another custom usercontrol into these web parts dynamically. But i m not able to do so.

Here is my code:

<asp:PlaceHolder ID="PlaceHolder1" runat="server"></asp:PlaceHolder>

Adding And Renaming Tabs?

May 7, 2011

Well, this time my target is to add and rename Tabs with tabcontrol, e.g.

I have a form and have added a TabControl to it and in the TabPages i have added RTB's,now i have also added a button which should add a new tab page to the TabControl, the thing is i know how to add a NEW tab but i also need to have a new RTB in each New created TabPage and after i create a new TabPage i wanna add the Title of that New TabPage. To add New Title to the New TabPage i have created a New Form in which i placed a TextBox so that that text that i type Into that TextBox should appear as the New TabPage Name.

Here's some code i tried, and i know that there's missing something and i know that the code may be written wrong but that's all i know, unfortunately?

Private Sub AddNewTabTool_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles AddNewTabTool.Click
Dim rtb As New RichTextBox

Callbyname With Controls In Tabs?

HTML Code:CallByName(Me.Controls("btn_" & list.Rows(J).Cells(1).Value()), "Visible", CallType.Set, True)

This code works fine with no issue with the buttons on on the form. However when I placed the buttons in to a tabcontrol on the same form I get the following error:Object variable or With block variable not set.

Does this error relate to the way CallByName calls the button handler and that its different to they way you could otherwise produce the same result using

Check Tabs On Close?

Dec 31, 2009

I'm making a notepad program and it's working out good except for when you close the form. I've tried to write a script that when you click the exit button will preform a check. For each tab in tabcontrol1 it will have a pop up asking if you want to save but only if the tab text doesn't = "New Tab" and has so content in its Rich Text Box. If the user clicks yes then it will save if no it just closes the tab. But if the user click cancel and aborts the close then it needs to stop the form from closing. But since there are multiple tabs I figured I'd use an array to hold the values of what was pressed and at the end if the array contains "no" or "n" then it wont close. But it doesn't work. Here's my code.

Public Sub closingform(ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.FormClosingEventArgs)
If TabControl1.TabCount >= 1 Then
Dim i As Integer = 0
