Index Property Example

The following example uses the Index property to change the order of the pages and tabs in a MultiPage and TabStrip. The user chooses CommandButton1 to move the third page and tab to the front of the MultiPage and TabStrip. The user chooses CommandButton2 to move the selected page and tab to the back of the MultiPage and TabStrip.

To use this example, copy this sample code to the Declarations portion of a form. Make sure that the form contains:

  • Two CommandButton controls named CommandButton1 and CommandButton2.
  • A MultiPage named MultiPage1.
  • A TabStrip named TabStrip1.
Dim MyPageOrTab As Object

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
'Move third page and tab to front of control
    MultiPage1.page3.Index = 0
    TabStrip1.Tab3.Index = 0
End Sub

Private Sub CommandButton2_Click()
'Move selected page and tab to back of control
    Set MyPageOrObject = MultiPage1.SelectedItem
    MsgBox "MultiPage1.SelectedItem = " _
        & MultiPage1.SelectedItem.Name
    MyPageOrObject.Index = 4

    Set MyPageOrObject = TabStrip1.SelectedItem
    MsgBox "TabStrip1.SelectedItem = " _
        & TabStrip1.SelectedItem.Caption
    MyPageOrObject.Index = 4
End Sub

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
    MultiPage1.Width = 200
    TabStrip1.Width = 200
    CommandButton1.Caption = _
        "Move third page/tab to front"
    CommandButton1.Width = 120
    CommandButton2.Caption = _
        "Move selected item to back"
    CommandButton2.Width = 120
 End Sub
