Showing a Form as a child of a Tab seamlessly
Posted on 2007-04-03
I am trying to migrate a VB6 project coded by somebody else into VB.NET.
The VB6 project contains a form that has many frames with many controls: total controls in the form around 200.
I want to create a separate Form for each VB6 frame in the new VB.NET project, to make the project more manageable.
But in the UI, I dont want the user to know that he is dealing with separate forms. In the main form, I want to have a tabbed interface, and when the user clicks on the Tab, I want to load the respective Form into that Tab and show it as a child of the Tab.
Is it possible ? Is this approach good ? Pls. give your suggestions. Which control can give me a tabbed interface in .NET ?
