About CTabCtrl

* How can I change the text in a CTabCtrl ?
Must I use 'SetItem' for this operation ?

I have try first to get the text of a tab by using :

 
  CTabCtrl *pTab = pSheet->GetTabControl();
  TC_ITEM   TcItem;
  char      Text[255];
  BOOL      rcCode;

  TcItem.mask = TCIF_TEXT;
  TcItem.pszText = Text;

  rcCode = pTab->GetItem(0,&TcItem);

After this rcCode is egal to FALSE. Why ?

* The second question is,
How can I disable some tabs in a CTabCtrl ?
I want that the disabled tabs are grayed !

First to get tab text you must also specify text length in cchTextMax field. To disable selected tab I guess you must implement owner draw tab control, draw text on disabled tab using grayed text, and block WM_LBUTTONDOWN message as well as arrow key for that tab.
