TabControl.SelectedIndexChanged Event


Occurs when the SelectedIndex property has changed.

 event EventHandler ^ SelectedIndexChanged;
public event EventHandler SelectedIndexChanged;
member this.SelectedIndexChanged : EventHandler 
Public Custom Event SelectedIndexChanged As EventHandler 


The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the SelectedIndexChanged event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging. To report on multiple events or on events that occur frequently, consider replacing MessageBox.Show with Console.WriteLine or appending the message to a multiline TextBox.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of type TabControl named TabControl1. Then ensure that the event handler is associated with the SelectedIndexChanged event.

private void TabControl1_SelectedIndexChanged(Object sender, EventArgs e) {

   MessageBox.Show("You are in the TabControl.SelectedIndexChanged event.");
Private Sub TabControl1_SelectedIndexChanged(sender as Object, e as EventArgs) _ 
     Handles TabControl1.SelectedIndexChanged

   MessageBox.Show("You are in the TabControl.SelectedIndexChanged event.")

End Sub


When this event occurs, you can check the SelectedIndex property to determine its new value. Alternatively, you can handle the Selected event and use the TabControlEventArgs.TabPageIndex property to determine the index of the selected tab page.
