Lost focus when active tabcontrol

Hi All,

I have the following problem and need help

I have 1 UltratabControl. Each tabcontrol has its own UltraTextEditor. When displaying a tab, then select all text of a Ultratexteditor field instead of focus at the end of the textbox. 

Please help me. Thanks

    Hello Ngoc Trinh,

    If you want to select all text in a UltraTextEditor when a tab is displayed, you may want to give focus to the ultraTextEditor and call its SelectAll() method when the form is displayed or the selected tab is changed.

    [Sample code]
        private void Form1_Shown(object sender, EventArgs e)

        private void ultraTabControl1_SelectedTabChanged(object sender, SelectedTabChangedEventArgs e)
            UltraTab selectedTab = e.Tab;

            if(selectedTab.TabPage.Controls.Count > 0)
                // Assuming that the first control on the selected tab is of UltraTextEditor.
                UltraTextEditor textEditor = selectedTab.TabPage.Controls[0] as UltraTextEditor;

    Could you give it a try? I hope this will help.
