Index Property Example

The following example uses the Index property to change the order of the pages and tabs in a MultiPage and TabStrip. The user chooses CommandButton1 to move the third page and tab to the front of the MultiPage and TabStrip. The user chooses CommandButton2 to move the selected page and tab to the back of the MultiPage and TabStrip.

To use this example, copy this sample code to the Declarations portion of a form. Make sure that the form contains:

  • Two CommandButton controls named CommandButton1 and CommandButton2.

  • A MultiPage named MultiPage1.

  • A TabStrip named TabStrip1.

Dim MyPageOrTab As Object 
 
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() 
'Move third page and tab to front of control 
 MultiPage1.page3.Index = 0 
 TabStrip1.Tab3.Index = 0 
End Sub 
 
Private Sub CommandButton2_Click() 
'Move selected page and tab to back of control 
 Set MyPageOrObject = MultiPage1.SelectedItem 
 MsgBox "MultiPage1.SelectedItem = " _ 
 &; MultiPage1.SelectedItem.Name 
 MyPageOrObject.Index = 4 
 
 Set MyPageOrObject = TabStrip1.SelectedItem 
 MsgBox "TabStrip1.SelectedItem = " _ 
 &; TabStrip1.SelectedItem.Caption 
 MyPageOrObject.Index = 4 
End Sub 
 
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize() 
 MultiPage1.Width = 200 
 MultiPage1.Pages.Add 
 MultiPage1.Pages.Add 
 MultiPage1.Pages.Add 
 
 TabStrip1.Width = 200 
 TabStrip1.Tabs.Add 
 TabStrip1.Tabs.Add 
 TabStrip1.Tabs.Add 
 
 CommandButton1.Caption = _ 
 "Move third page/tab to front" 
 CommandButton1.Width = 120 
 
 CommandButton2.Caption = _ 
 "Move selected item to back" 
 CommandButton2.Width = 120 
 End Sub
