I have what might be a basic question. In VB6 I seem to recall a sort of "wizard designer" which facilitated the design of a multi-step process with prev/next buttones etc. The various panels were shunted off to one side to reveal the one you were designing on - all controlled by VB6 IDE add-in.
My current application has a number of full-screen panels (not a wizard) but each switched on/off by various actions on a menu bar down the LH side of my screen. I am using VS.Net 2003.
My problem is - how can I easily accomodate all these panels (about 6 so far) on the screen, and lay out controls reliably? At present I simply reduce/enlarge as required, but I feel this is too messy to work with, and you run into z-order problems etc etc.
Any advice on how to handle - at design time of course - these multiple panels would be appreciated. Some panels have program-generated controls, others must be laid out at design time.
Many thanks in advance
