Hello! I'm sorry, if someone asked this before, but devices with VGA screens dont show tabs from the ControlsEx library:sign0161: Im using Erel's code from "working with VGA screens" thread. I hope there is a decision somewhere?

You will need to add the following code in sub ChangeToVga:
B4X:
Case "TabControl.TabControl"
                Control(Controls(i),TabControl).Left = 2 * Control(Controls(i),TabControl).Left
                Control(Controls(i),TabControl).Top = 2 * Control(Controls(i),TabControl).Top
                Control(Controls(i),TabControl).Height = 2 * Control(Controls(i),TabControl).Height
                Control(Controls(i),TabControl).Width = 2 * Control(Controls(i),TabControl).Width

Elrick, I assure you that TabControl does indeed work on VGA devices. I've used it without a problem on an HTC Advantage and an HP iPaq 210.

I can't know exactly what the problem is, but it's not due solely to VGA.

I'm sorry for the delay. This is really interesting... I've attached 2 screenshots:
1 - how it looks on my Glofiish M700
2 - how it looks on my friend's pda with vga screen
I really dont know why it works for all except me... I even have added "bring to front" property to tabcontrol. Still no effect... Can anybody make code with TabControl which works on their device?

Which device are we talking about?
We talking about
Program tested on glofiish x500+ with NET CF 3,5
First screenshot was only for comparison - how it looks on my non-vga device (and how i want it to look on vga) and the second - how it really looks on vga device.
Have you tried reducing the size of the TabControl in case it is a size issue and the tabs are off the screen?
It is very strange, but the problem was here... I've added "Top-50" property to TabControl and also "top+50" property to all panels on this form. I dont know why, but it works:)
