Indexing Controls (refer to them by index number)

Use a group box

Stopping Refresh Of A Control

ListBox->BeginUpdate(); //Supress drawing the listbox
. . .
ListBox->EndUpdate(); //Resume drawing of the list box

Tab Control

To see which tab is active use:-
if (TabName->Visible)
Visible doesn’t dictate if a tab is displayed, it tells you if it is currently visible.

Updating The Text Of A Control

OurButton->Text = OurVariableValue.ToString(); //To set to a variable value
