TnoteBook not inheritable ??

I'm using a TNotebook on an ancestor form.

When I try to create a new form based on this ancestor form, I get an message saying that I cannot inherit from it.

Tracing through the code of TNoteBook, I found that it is created with an Exclude(FComponentStyle, csInheritable).

Any reason for that ? will I encounter any problem if I subclass it and override the create function and remove this statement ?

thanks,
Fadyg

Hi fadyg,

I suppose that it because of Borland trying to prevent use this component. May be I'm wrong, but Delphi's help:
<<
...
TNotebook is provided for backward compatibility. New applications should use TPageControl instead.

another idea is that when component is csInheritable, then component needs to check its properties for readability. But there can be problems with COM controls.
