Objects are added to the tabbed notebook in the same manner as they are added to any other object.  Create the new object and make the tabbed notebook the parent.  (Sorry -- the page doesn't own the object, the notebook does.)

The tabbed notebook contains a property (field, variable, etc) called PageIndex.  When one of the tabs is clicked, walk through the objects owned by the notebook and set the object's Visible property according to whether you want the item active on the new page.

Oh, and when you first display the notebook you'll want to make sure that Visible is correctly set for each object so that the initial page displays properly.

Sorry for the delay getting back to you.

Pretend that you've got a two page tabbed notebook.  The two pages are identified as "Page 1" and "Page 2".  Within the Windows system, the two pages are NOT considered objects -- they are simply items on a control.  So you cannot assign an item to a "page" of a tabbed notebook and just have it work.

Now lets add an item to each page.  "This is page 1" and "This is page 2" are labels that are added to the tabbed notebook.  When a page is displayed we want the correct label to also display.

Set the tabbednotebook's "OnClick" event to point to a function, TabbedNotebookClick().  Now code the function like this:

TMyForm::TabbedNotebookClick (TObject *Sender)
{
 
  if (TabbedNotebook->DisplayPage == 1)
  {
    TabbedNotebook->Label1->Visible = true;
    TabbedNotebook->Label2->Visible = false;
  }
  else if (TabbedNotbook->DisplayPage == 2)
  {
    TabbedNotebook->Label1->Visible = false;
    TabbedNotebook->Label2->Visible = true;
  }

As you add pages and objects, add them to the TabbedNotebookClick() method to control when the are displayed.

The tabbednotebook object has a property called "Active Page".  You can change which page is displayed from your program by setting this property to the NAME of the page that you want displayed.


Good Luck!

That's OK.

Somewhere you had to acquire an objects library that contains the executable code for the GUI controls.

My example was C++ (Sorry -- my fault) but the same theory holds for C, too.  You just don't tie the function to the TMyForm class.
