[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example creates a TabControl with one TabPage. This example uses the Add method to add a single tab page to the tabControl1 tab control. Notice the TabPages property is used to get the tabControl1 controls collection to add the tabPage1 to this collection.

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

Public Class Form1

    Private tabControl1 As TabControl
    Private tabPage1 As TabPage

    Public Sub New()
        Me.tabControl1 = New TabControl()
        Me.tabPage1 = New TabPage()

        ' Gets the controls collection for tabControl1.
        ' Adds the tabPage1 to this collection.
        Me.tabControl1.TabPages.Add(tabPage1)

        Me.tabControl1.Location = New Point(25, 25)
        Me.tabControl1.Size = New Size(250, 250)

        Me.ClientSize = New Size(300, 300)
        Me.Controls.Add(tabControl1)
    End Sub

    Shared Sub Main()
        Application.Run(New Form1())
