Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This is a big question. Firstly there is no direct way where you can directly put a CView based class onto a CPropertyPage. The CPropertyPage expects its base class derived from a CDialog based template. What you are looking at is a solution you might have develop yourselves. There are ways of doing this.

- Simplest of all -> Forget the CView based property page. Make a modaless CPropertySheet and use the CDialog based templates as usual.

- Use a third-party tool like Softtabs. This is a direct answer to your solution. This costs. Follow the third approach if your pockets are tied.

- This is a big approach. Make a CListView derived class. The ListView should be subclassed in such a way that the Listcontrol (or listbox) should be ownerdrawn to look like a Tab control. There are several examples on 'switching views' available of the VC++ or the MSDN CD. Modify it to fit to each tab.
