Need source to implement CTabCtrl in a dialog.  I created all of my pages as dialogs and would rather use CTabCtrl instead of property pages in my main dialog box.  I don't want the APPLY button or any of the buttons that come along with CPropertyPage but would like to setup each page in the same manner.  Am I forced to use CPropertyPage?  I placed the CTabCtrl control in my main dialog and in OnInitDialog was successful in adding the tabs but now need to place the actual dialogs on each of the pages.  Help...point me to some good code...

The CTabContral is just a simple control, you have to put ALL your controls in ONE dialog and hide an disable them yourself according to the position of the tab. This will also result in flickering on the screen as the controls are switched on and off.
For this reason it's not a good idea to use CTabControl in dialogs. Better use a propertypage.

I found an example that allowed me to create my tabs using CPropertyPage referencing my dialogs.  There was a trick involved with using a picture box and then in OnInitDialog changing some of the attributes.  I actually got it to work with very little effort.  I guess what I was really looking for was how to get rid of the buttons that come on a propertysheet (i.e. Apply, Cancel, and OK).
