IMPLEMENT_DYNAMIC(CObjektDlg, CDialog)
CObjektDlg::CObjektDlg(CWnd* pParent /*=NULL*/)
      : CDialog(CObjektDlg::IDD, pParent)
{
      od_TabCtrl.InsertItem(0,"test");
}

It gives me a runtime error... why?

Never used a tab control so if the problem lies with the control i can't help.

However, with many controls, calls to member functions cause runtime errors if the control has not yet been created.

The control should not be touched until OnInitialUpdate() function, and not till after, in that function, the contrtol is created.  This is of course unless the dialog creates the control, but even then, handle the control method calls in InitialUpdate() at the earliest.

Move this code to OnInitDialog function.

dkloeck, at the time the CObjektDlg contructs, its member od_TabCtrl (I presume it's a member) does not have a hWnd. This happens only after dialog creation. So try overriding OnInitDialog for your CObjektDlg and insert the item in tabctrl there.

I wrote:

BOOL CObjektDlg::OnInitDialog()
{
      od_TabCtrl.InsertItem(0,"test");
      return TRUE;
}

but it still gives the same error

What error do you get? How is od_TabCtrl defined?

public:

      virtual ~CObjektDlg();
      BOOL OnInitDialog();

// Dialog Data
      enum { IDD = IDD_ObjektDlg };

      DECLARE_MESSAGE_MAP()

Objekt dialog is called with a DoModal() funktion.

you must call CDialog::OnInitDialog() before inserting item in tabctrl

BOOL CObjektDlg::OnInitDialog()
{
     CDialog::OnInitDialog();
     od_TabCtrl.InsertItem(0,"test");
     return TRUE;
}

in class wizard filter on messages for a dialog , it is the WM_INITDIALOG you want.
