Hi,

A friend of mine is using a class derived from the CTabCtrl and wants to add drag and drop to it. The problem he gets with drag and drop is that he only can drop on the tab area of the control and not on the client area. The new class has not changed any parts that can be important for this. I have a problem verifying any request since the code isn't mine, so please only answer if you have a good suggestion regarding this topic.

I.E How can he get the client area of the tab control to accept drops?

/ Andreas

That I already understood, but since I can't find a way to get to that window I don't know what to do. I suggested to my friend to use CWnd::GetWindow(GW_CHILD), but he says it doesn't work

try
CRect rect;
CTabCtrl::GetWindowRect(&rect);
CTabCtrl::AdjustRect(FALSE, &rect);
CPoint point(rect.left, rect.top);
point.Offset(rect.Width()/2, rect.Height()/2);
Wndn * pChild = CWnd::WindowFromPoint(point);
if(pChild != NULL)
{
   //register it as drop target
}
