Hello, I'm using visual c++ 6.0, and I want to make a dialog based application with a vertical command bar which calls another "tabblad" when you press a button.
(a bit like this: http://bcgsoft.com/Images/screenshot-1.jpg , but I prefer a free solution).
I searched on codeguru, but all the examples I found where SDI or MDI examples.
How can I do this ??

Thanks.

If you have an SDI based app with a CFormView based view then don't have a toolbar or menu and voila a dialog.

erm...
thanks for your replie, but since I'm just starting with visual c++ , could you please explain what I should do exactly to have such an application (and is such an "sdi-dialog" exactly the same as a normal dialog app. ?? (I'm learning visual c++ with "sams teach yourself vc++6 in 21 days, where they start with SDI applications on day 10, so I still know nothing about it...))

Follow the new project wizard, select SDI based app and at the final screen select CView in the list and a combo at the bottom of the form should become enabled where you can select CFormView as the base class for the CView.
