tab control is very much like a set of radio buttons .. when you click on a tab, you get a message sayig 'tab number x has been blicked on'.  That is all tabs do.

What happens when you click on a tab is usually one of tow things

1) you change the visibility of certina controls (or maybe change some labels etc).  You couldeven dynamically create/destroy controls

2) you use child dialogs and make the appropriate one active/visible.

If you are going for options 2, then an embedded (child) property sheet is the easiest, as it has the logic for hooking up tabs to child dialogs built in.

If you don't want tabs for some other reason, then you can do either of the above yourself.
I think, nevertheless the easiest way is to use a tab-control on your dialog. You can modify it's style (within the resource editor), so that no tabs are displayed, but you can use it like  a "standard" tab-control.

Thanks for your help, RONSLOW

what I need is like "view switching" .
perhaps the option 2 that you gave me can help.
Because i am a beginner in programing,I hope if you can give me some example or some tips.
