I am using a tabstrip control with a different picturebox on each tab. That way, I can just add controls to the picturebox and when someone clicks a different tab, I just make the appropriate picturebox visible. The problem I am having is that the controls, comboboxes, on the individual pictureboxes, are not active. The only way I can get it to work is if I put the combo.additem event in the sub for picture1_click(). Is there a different way to make the combobox work when I click just the comcobox instead of clicking on the picturebox?

This doesn't answer you question but If you have the pro or higher version of VB 6 and I think 5 you could just add them Microsoft tabbed dialog control. It is far easier to use and doesn't require picture boxes.

Which control is this? I am using VB6 Pro edition and all I can see is the SSTab and the tabstrip? Am I missing something or should I be using the SSTab?

goto project then components and search the list for
Microsoft tabbed dialog control....
If it's not in there then I might be wrong about it being available in the pro edition. I use ent. edition but thought when I was using pro edition it was there....?????
