how to: update label on tab


Recommended Posts

Hello!, I am hoping someone can help me. I have a tab control with four tabs. On the first tab I have a progress bar that has a label next to it that changes according to the status of the progress bar. However, after I delete the first label to add the next one it is displayed across all four tabs and has a different background color. Any ideas on why this would be? Thanks in advance.

Deleting and creating other than when the tabs themselves are created is always a risky business. :(

But why are you deleting aand recreating the label in the first place? If you want to change the content of the label, why not use GUICtrlSetData - it is there for that very purpose! :mellow:

If you were to post some code we could offer more specific advice. :lol:
