Implementing the following will help work around the problem:

    ' General Declarations of Form
    Dim blnJustOnce1 As Boolean
    Dim blnJustOnce2 As Boolean
    Dim blnJustOnce3 As Boolean
    Private Sub Form_Load()
      blnJustOnce1 = True
      blnJustOnce2 = True
      blnJustOnce3 = True
    End Sub
    Private Sub SSTab1_Click(PreviousTab As Integer)
      Select Case Form1.SSTab1.Tab
      Case 0
        If blnJustOnce1 Then
         Form1.Grid1.Text =""
         blnJustOnce1 = False
        End If
      Case 1
        If blnJustOnce2 Then
         Form1.Grid2.Text =""
         blnJustOnce2 = False
        End If
      Case 2
        If blnJustOnce3 Then
         Form1.Grid3.Text =""
         blnJustOnce3 = False
        End If
      End Select
    End Sub


Microsoft is researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.


Steps to Reproduce Behavior

  1. Open a new "Standard Exe" project.
  2. Click Components on the Project menu. Check "Microsoft Tabbed Dialog Control 5.0" and "Microsoft Grid Control" and click OK.
  3. Add an SSTab control to Form1.
  4. Set the Tabs property of SSTab1 to 3.
  5. Add a Grid control to each Tab of the SSTab control.
  6. Select the first tab of SSTab1.
  7. Run the program. Note that the Text property of the Grid control on the first tab is not set. Also, note that the Text property of the Grid control on the second and third tabs are set to zero.
