OWL's TTabControl

Borland 5.0's TTabControl example is a little weak showing how to implement the tabs but not the actual dialogs.

I'm working on an app that will front-end a relational database that requires quick access to about 80 or so fields. I kind of feel that a tab control would be useful as the MAIN window of the app with modal dialogues used frequently to fill in gaps.

What's the appropriate approach -- I'm trying modeless dialogs for each tab, with no border or caption and it works really nicely until you resize the Window, then my dialogs disappear (underneath the Tab dialog?).

Can you suggest where I might find an example of how this should be implemented or suggest what I'm neglecting to do -- I assume I have to bring my dialog to the front somehow and resize it to fit. Or am I completely barking up the wrong tree?

I suggest you to use the TPropertyPage or TPropertySheet to reach the same goal. It is easier. Anyway, I do not thrust too much on TTabControl: TNoteTab is much better.
