I have a dialog, within it I have a CTabCtrl, I have another two smaller dialogs which are the same size of the CTabCtrl. I would like to add these to dialogs into the CTabCtrl.
I looked in the help and documents I have and all I could find is how to insert a tab using the CTabCtrl::InsertItem function that takes a TC_ITEM structure as parameter but in this structure all I can set is the tab text, image .. but I cannot reference a dialog to the tab.
How can I do that ?
I don't want to use PropertySheet from other reasons.

"The items in the tab are displayed at the top of the tab. You add these to the tab control" --> What items and how do I add them to the tab control ?
You're saying that I have to catch all the tab control events and show and hide my dialogs manually ? ( and position them according to the tab control position ?? )
If u want to add the dialogs by default, then u have to work with PropertyPage for that. If u want the CTabCtrl, then u have to trap the controls and display the dialog according to ur need. No other way for that.........
