Keyboard functionality in tabbed dialogs
Posted on 1998-08-13
I am using TabControl to create a dialog with several tabs. Currently, all my tabs are defined with separate dialog templates and shown/hidden when tabs are changed.
If I use DialogBox(), keyboard functionality does not work. My current solution is to use CreateDialog() and code all the keyboard functionality myself. However, this is quite a task, so I'd like to know if there is an easier way.
Property sheets are out of question. Using CreateDialog() and having IsDialogMessage() in the message loop doesn't work, because IsDialogMessage() apparently doesn't support child dialogs. And I don't want to create a "flat" dialog with all controls in the top-level template, because individual tabs are complex and I want to have separate WndProc()'s for them.
