Public Sub AddRange( _
   ByVal pages() As TabPage _
public void AddRange(
 TabPage[] pages
public: void AddRange(
 TabPage* pages[]
public function AddRange(
   pages : TabPage[]


An array of type TabPage that contains the tab pages to add.


Exception Type Condition
ArgumentNullException The value of pages equals null.


[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example creates a TabControl with three TabPage. This example uses the AddRange method to add an array of tab pages to the tabControl1 tab control. Notice that the TabPages property gets the tabControl1 controls collection, in order to add the array of tab pages to this collection.

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] Use the System.Drawing and System.Windows.Forms namespaces for this collection.
