Maximum Number Of Controls On A Tab Control
Is there a "best practice" maximum number of controls that can be
loaded on to a tab control before things start getting messy and
sluggish? I'm asking for a "best practice" maximum number across all
tabs and not the maximum number that is theoretically possible.
I figure that trying to add lots of controls to lots of tabs must
affect performance at some point.
Any help is appreciated.

affect on performance at all. Certainly not any that I have been able to

In some applications tab controls contain subforms. If things get
sluggish I typically only set the SourceObject once the user hits that
Otherwise: YMMV. Do some tests and see what your users' tolerance
