How to: Add and Remove Tabs with the Windows Forms TabControl

By default, a TabControl control contains two TabPage controls. You can access these tabs through the TabPages property.

To add a tab programmatically

  • Use the Add method of the TabPages property.

    Dim myTabPage As New TabPage()
    myTabPage.Text = "TabPage" & (TabControl1.TabPages.Count + 1)
    TabControl1.TabPages.Add(myTabPage)
    
    

    string title = "TabPage " + (tabControl1.TabCount + 1).ToString();
    TabPage myTabPage = new TabPage(title);
    tabControl1.TabPages.Add(myTabPage);
    
    

    String title = "TabPage " + (tabControl1.get_TabCount() + 1);
    TabPage myTabPage = new TabPage(title);
    tabControl1.get_TabPages().Add(myTabPage);
    

    String^ title = String::Concat("TabPage ",
       (tabControl1->TabCount + 1).ToString());
    TabPage^ myTabPage = gcnew TabPage(title);
    tabControl1->TabPages->Add(myTabPage);
    

To remove a tab programmatically

  • To remove selected tabs, use the Remove method of the TabPages property.

    -or-

  • To remove all tabs, use the Clear method of the TabPages property.

    ' Removes the selected tab:
    TabControl1.TabPages.Remove(TabControl1.SelectedTab)
    ' Removes all the tabs:
    TabControl1.TabPages.Clear()
    
    

    // Removes the selected tab:
    tabControl1.TabPages.Remove(tabControl1.SelectedTab);
    // Removes all the tabs:
    tabControl1.TabPages.Clear();
    
    

    // Removes the selected tab:
    tabControl1.get_TabPages().Remove(tabControl1.get_SelectedTab());
    // Removes all the tabs:
    tabControl1.get_TabPages().Clear();
    

    // Removes the selected tab:
    tabControl1->TabPages->Remove(tabControl1->SelectedTab);
    // Removes all the tabs:
    tabControl1->TabPages->Clear();
