Using SetWindowPos()

Last Modified: 2013-11-20

I'm using SetWindowPos() to change the z order of some dialog controls at runtime. Doesn't seem to work, I am using it wrong I guess.
I want a tab control to be placed in front of a button control. So I do:

    m_Button.SetWindowPos(&m_Tab, 0, 0, 200, 20, SWP_SHOWWINDOW);

m_Button is my button control var and m_Tab is the same for the tab control. It looks like the tab still is 'underneath' the button if they ever overlap.
