A regular tab control actually don't contain any or your data-windows. You need to create (by code, or from a template) a different child-dialog for each of your tab page. Then when the tab sends a TCN_SELCHANGE message, you can get the selected tab number (using TabCtrl_GetCurSel, or sending a TCM_GETCURSEL message) and display the appropriate dialog.

I used it myself when I developed a UI with a tab control. If you have any further problems, just let me know, maybe I can help.
Good luck.

Hi Mensana/anyone,
   One important point is that one of my dialog box is bigger than the size of the window,so implementation of scrollbar arises and 'am not able to make the scroll bar to move the page downwards.

Help me in this regard,

Thanx,
Thiru

I don’t understand what are you trying to do. If you have so many controls on one tab that there is not enough real estate you can actually add a new tab and try to split the controls between two tabs. Eventually you can consider the possibility of having a tab control within a tab control. Basically, on a tab page for a tab control you can throw controls of any kind. I don’t understand what are you trying to scroll! A tab control is used on a dialog box oriented app. There is no way of scrolling such a window. You may want to look into resizing the controls or taking a different approach by using MDI apps. Try to be more specific so I can understand exactly the nature of your problem.
