TabControl.TabPageCollection.AddRange(TabPage[]) Method


Adds a set of tab pages to the collection.

 void AddRange(cli::array <System::Windows::Forms::TabPage ^> ^ pages);
public void AddRange (System.Windows.Forms.TabPage[] pages);
member this.AddRange : System.Windows.Forms.TabPage[] -> unit
Public Sub AddRange (pages As TabPage())



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


The value of pages equals null.


The following code 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.

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

using namespace System::Drawing;
using namespace System::Windows::Forms;
public ref class Form1: public Form
   TabControl^ tabControl1;
   TabPage^ tabPage1;
   TabPage^ tabPage2;
   TabPage^ tabPage3;

      this->tabControl1 = gcnew TabControl;
      this->tabPage1 = gcnew TabPage;
      this->tabPage2 = gcnew TabPage;
      this->tabPage3 = gcnew TabPage;
      array<TabPage^>^tabPages = {tabPage1,tabPage2,tabPage3};
      // Gets the controls collection for tabControl1.
      // Adds an array of tab pages to this collection.
      this->tabControl1->Controls->AddRange( tabPages );
      this->tabControl1->Location = Point(25,25);
      this->tabControl1->Size = System::Drawing::Size( 250, 250 );
      this->ClientSize = System::Drawing::Size( 300, 300 );
      this->Controls->Add( tabControl1 );


int main()
   Application::Run( gcnew Form1 );
using System.Drawing;
using System.Windows.Forms;

public class Form1 : Form
    private TabControl tabControl1;
    private TabPage tabPage1;
    private TabPage tabPage2;
    private TabPage tabPage3;

    public Form1()
        this.tabControl1 = new TabControl();
        this.tabPage1 = new TabPage();
        this.tabPage2 = new TabPage();
        this.tabPage3 = new TabPage();

        // Gets the controls collection for tabControl1.
        // Adds an array of tab pages to this collection.
        this.tabControl1.Controls.AddRange(new TabPage[] {
            tabPage1, tabPage2, tabPage3});

        this.tabControl1.Location = new Point(25, 25);
        this.tabControl1.Size = new Size(250, 250);

        this.ClientSize = new Size(300, 300);

        Application.Run(new Form1());
