Win32 Tab Control Usage

I am able to create a tab control in Visual C++ 6.0 on my Win32 Application, but how do i get it to display a different group of controls for each tab?  Right now i can only get it to click across tabs, how do i get it to show different controls after clicking a different tab?  I've heard you have to use a different dialog for each tab???  A link or working sample code would help in explaining how to do this to me.  I have searched the web and could only find MFC based examples.  A quick response would be great because it will be about two weeks before i am able to do a response.  I am increasing the points.  Thanks in advance!

Hi,
  Following is the sample code for using Tab Dialog using WIN32 application.

Thanks
hsdhina

        PROPSHEETPAGE   gPSP[2];
        PROPSHEETHEADER gPSH;
        int idx = 0;

        gPSP[idx].dwSize                      = sizeof(PROPSHEETPAGE);
        gPSP[idx].dwFlags                     = 0;
        gPSP[idx].hInstance                   = ghInstance;
        gPSP[idx].DUMMYUNIONNAME.pszTemplate  = MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDD_SPLASH);
        gPSP[idx].DUMMYUNIONNAME2.pszIcon     = NULL;
        gPSP[idx].pfnDlgProc                  = (DLGPROC)SplashDialogProc;
        gPSP[idx].pszTitle                    = NULL;
        gPSP[idx].lParam                      = 0;
        gPSP[idx].pfnCallback                 = NULL;
        idx++;

        gPSP[idx].dwSize                      = sizeof(PROPSHEETPAGE);
        gPSP[idx].dwFlags                     = 0;
        gPSP[idx].hInstance                   = ghInstance;
        gPSP[idx].DUMMYUNIONNAME.pszTemplate  = MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDD_WELCOME);
        gPSP[idx].DUMMYUNIONNAME2.pszIcon     = NULL;
        gPSP[idx].pfnDlgProc                  = (DLGPROC)WelcomeDialogProc;
        gPSP[idx].pszTitle                    = NULL;
        gPSP[idx].lParam                      = 0;
        gPSP[idx].pfnCallback                 = NULL;
        idx++;


        gPSH.dwSize                     = sizeof(PROPSHEETHEADER);
        gPSH.dwFlags                    = PSH_PROPSHEETPAGE | PSH_USEICONID | PSH_WIZARD;
        gPSH.hwndParent                 = ghMainWindowHandle;
        gPSH.hInstance                  = ghInstance;
        gPSH.DUMMYUNIONNAME.pszIcon     = "SetupIcon";
        gPSH.pszCaption                 = "Inteli-Installer";
        gPSH.nPages                     = idx;
        gPSH.DUMMYUNIONNAME2.nStartPage = 0;
        gPSH.DUMMYUNIONNAME3.ppsp       = (LPCPROPSHEETPAGE)&gPSP;
        gPSH.pfnCallback                = NULL;


where IDD_SPLASH & IDD_WELCOME are different dialog resources.
          SplashDialogProc & WelcomeDialogProc are callback functions
