Working with TabStrip

I have a dialog with 7 tabs. I want to create container controls(a frame) for each tabstrip's client area on separate forms. Is this possible ?

Working on many frames in the same form is very messy. Examples I have seen create the frame control in the same form where the tab is.

If there is not a particular reason to use the tabstrip try the "Microsoft Tabbed Dialog Control" (SSTab) it is MUCH easier to work with.  It doesn't use frames/containers - an d the development environment acts/looks like the runtime...

You can set the number of tabs, and the number of tabs per row to give it a multiple row effect.
