Confused about CTabCtrl...
Posted on 2000-03-24
I wanted to ask advice about how to go about something...
I'm creating a dialog that requires tabbed pages. I have chosen not to use Property Pages, so that I wouldn't spawn another dialog box. Therefore, I picked CTabCtrl. Looking at the Microsoft example, FIRE, I noticed that the single control (a picture box) is placed on the dialog (at design time) and shows up regardless of which tab page is showing. I intend to display several controls per page and wondered how to go about this. Must all the controls (at design time) sit on the dialog, rather than the tabbed page? How best can I do this without making a mess? How should the controls be link, so that they only show when the appropriate page is being displayed?
In VB there is extensive support for design time layout of controls and for grouping of controls (on the tabbed pages). How best should I go about this in VC?
