    Form with Tabs

    Hi,

    I have a form with tabs and the vertical scroll bar.

    The tabbed part is only the bottom 1/4 of the form.

    When I click the second tab the whole form moves slightly so that the top of the entire form the tabs sit on, moves down slightly which is really annoying,

    Is there a way to stop this?
    Best Regards,

    Luke

    That is often a case where a control or sub-form on the tab control is slightly larger than the space the tab control occupies. If possible, we avoid using vertical scroll bars in what we design - in fact we try not to use any scroll bars. I would try moving the tab control up just slightly to see if that helps. Tab controls can exhibit some quirky behavior - we have some examples where you can't move the left edge away from the left side of the form it resides on. The only recourse seems to be to delete the existing tab control and re-add it and all the controls on it.
