I have created a tabstrip menu as a user control which I have embedded into a webform page. In the Page_Load event of the webform I now want to be able to change the selected index of the tabstrip. what do I have to inherit etc in order to get this to work.<BR><BR>If I simply try:<BR> Engineering.TabMenu.TopTab.SelectedIndex = 1<BR>where engineering is the application name, tabmenu is the user control, toptab is the tabstrip name I get not accesiable within this context because it is protected?
