tabstrip beforeclick event


New Member
I'm working on an application which uses the standard OCX tabstrip (OE10.1).
Unfortunatly (for me) we have certain fields with on leave of... validation. If the user inputs duff data but leaves the field by clicking the tabstrip, then the validation error fires but the tabstrip still changes the selected tab. Result is my original frame still shows (correctly), but the selected tab is incorrect.

I'm not able to simply disable the tabstrip until the user completes all the fields correctly (don't ask why) but i think i can use the beforeclick event to cancel the tab change.

problem is i have no idea how to pass in the 'p-cancel' parameter that this requires.

anyone help?

I would be incredibly surprised if an issue from 2009 was still current.
