public ref class Form1: public Form
{
private:
   TabControl^ tabControl1;
   TabPage^ tabPage1;
   TabPage^ tabPage2;
   void MyTabs()
   {
      this->tabControl1 = gcnew TabControl;
      this->tabPage1 = gcnew TabPage;
      this->tabPage2 = gcnew TabPage;
      array<Control^>^tabPages = {this->tabPage1,this->tabPage2};
      this->tabControl1->Controls->AddRange( tabPages );
      this->tabControl1->Location = Point(35,25);
      this->tabControl1->Size = System::Drawing::Size( 220, 220 );
      
      // Shows ToolTipText when the mouse passes over tabs.
      this->tabControl1->ShowToolTips = true;
      
      // Assigns String* values to ToolTipText.
      this->tabPage1->ToolTipText = "myTabPage1";
      this->tabPage2->ToolTipText = "myTabPage2";
      this->Size = System::Drawing::Size( 300, 300 );
      array<Control^>^formControls = {this->tabControl1};
      this->Controls->AddRange( formControls );
   }
