I need to prevent the user from changing tab in a tab control until it clicks on the "Finish" button on the current tab.
There is a property called enabled, set it to false.
yes, but that disables all the controls on the tab control! i just need to disable to change tab...
Unfortunately Microsoft forgot to put in the e.Handled on a mouse event.
If you would like, you can create your own Class do deal with this. Then you just use e.Handled = True (on the TabControl MouseDown for example) and the mouse click will not get fired. I copied the code below for you:
Public Class MouseEventArgs Inherits System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs Private _mHandled As Boolean ''' <param name="button">One of the System.Windows.Forms.MouseButtons ''' values indicating which mouse button was pressed.</param> ''' <param name="clicks">The number of times a mouse button was pressed.</param> ''' <param name="x">The x-coordinate of a mouse click, in pixels.</param> ''' <param name="y">The y-coordinate of a mouse click, in pixels.</param> ''' <param name="delta">A signed count of the number ''' of detents the wheel has rotated.</param> <DebuggerHidden()> _ Sub New(ByVal button As MouseButtons, _ ByVal clicks As Integer, _ ByVal x As Integer, _ ByVal y As Integer, _ ByVal delta As Integer) MyBase.New(button, clicks, x, y, delta) Me._mHandled = False End Sub ''' <summary> ''' Gets or sets a value indicating whether the event was handled. ''' </summary> Public Property Handled() As Boolean <DebuggerHidden()> _ Get Return Me._mHandled End Get <DebuggerHidden()> _ Set(ByVal value As Boolean) Me._mHandled = value End Set End Property End Class
ok thank you
