hello , i've in my system a search form which contains many tabs for each table i have in the database

for example (employee tab,departments tab....)

and seperated forms for the same tables to add recored from

what i want is

when i'm opening the employee form and press the search button which opens the search form that contains the search tabs
to open with specific tab selected , not the default one

hope it can be done

thanks in advance

Probably better to use an enum and to mark the tag with the enum, that way you can use a single method to find and activate the correct tab.

Less messy than using a switch statement.

Modify the constructor for the search form to take a parameter to tell it which tab to open and then use a switch block to handle the param value and open the right tab?

Quite a messy way to do it but would work.

Had a feeling you would know a cleaner implementation
