[BrowsableAttribute(false)]
public TabPage SelectedTab { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.TabPage
A TabPage that represents the selected tab page. If no tab page is selected, the value is null.

The tab page must be in the TabPages collection to make it the current tab page.

The following code example creates a TabControl with two TabPage objects. The SelectedTab property sets tabPage2 as the currently selected tab page.

Use the System.Drawing and System.Windows.Forms namespaces for this example.


using System.Drawing;
using System.Windows.Forms;

public class Form1 : Form
{
    private TabControl tabControl1;
    private TabPage tabPage1;
    private TabPage tabPage2;

    private void MyTabs()
    {
        this.tabControl1 = new TabControl();
        this.tabPage1 = new TabPage();
        this.tabPage2 = new TabPage();

        this.tabControl1.Controls.AddRange(new Control[] {
            this.tabPage1,
            this.tabPage2});
        this.tabControl1.Padding = new Point(15, 10);
        this.tabControl1.Location = new Point(35, 25);
        this.tabControl1.Size = new Size(220, 220);

        // Selects tabPage2 using SelectedTab.
        this.tabControl1.SelectedTab = tabPage2;

        this.tabPage1.Text = "tabPage1";
        this.tabPage2.Text = "tabPage2";

        this.Size = new Size(300, 300);
        this.Controls.AddRange(new Control[] {
            this.tabControl1});
    }

    public Form1()
    {
        MyTabs();
    }

    static void Main() 
    {
        Application.Run(new Form1());
    }
}
