Dialog based app, multiple 'forms'

I've done a complex dialog app in VB before and used forms to change the views.  I could just display the current form, which would own all controls in it, and VB would handle the displaying of the entire form.  I'm trying to do the same in MFC and can't seem to figure out a way to do it.  It seems that no frame or group area owns any controls.  Do I have to show and update each control separately?  Is there a tab or frame control I can use?

One way to do this is to create a window/dialog to own the controls you need and hide and show the window or dialog as needed.

Another possibility would be to create a tabbed dialog (also known as property sheet).
