Visual Studio 2005 - Subform/Embedded form in TabControl

Hi

Is there a way to embed a form in a tab of a TabControl oin another form?

I am trying to recreate the Format cells form in Excel

Is it possible to place each of the FontDialog and ColorDialog controls into a form's tabs so that they appear embedded?

Thanks in advance

I don't believe you can embed another form, yet another application's form, in any control.
Again the FontDialog and ColorDialog are effectively other applications.

However, you can see whether any application has within it embedded controls it allows you to use. My version of Excel has not.
To do this, open your toolbox and use "Choose Items" or the equivalent, to get a list of objects. You may have to use the COM Components Tab

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Yes, you can always embed one form in another, as long as you set the forms TopLevel = False, and then set the parent.

I am working on the tabbed dialogs with multiple forms for the Excel dialog.
