You can add new tabs to a Tab control at run time with the Add method of the TabPages collection. You can see an example of this in the TabControls example on the CD-ROM—when the user clicks the "Create Tab 4" button, a new tab appears, as you see in Figure 10.25.
Here's what it looks like in code:
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _ ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click Dim tabpage As New TabPage() tabpage.Text = "Tab 4" TabControl1.TabPages.Add(tabpage) End Sub
Now that you've added a new tab page to a tab control, how do you add controls to that page? See the next topic.
