Hello! How are you?

I'm trying to use resources but i found a problem.

I did a Dialog, added a tabcontrol, i want to use another dialog to display my controls in tab 1, so it's more easy to hide everything.

I'm doing this in the main callback dialog:

case WM_INITDIALOG:{
	MyControls::Instance().AddPageToTab(GetDlgItem(hWnd, IDC_TAB1), Main::Inst().items, "aaaaaaa", 0);
	MyControls::Instance().AddPageToTab(GetDlgItem(hWnd, IDC_TAB1), Main::Inst().items, "bbbbbbb", 1);
	MyControls::Instance().AddPageToTab(GetDlgItem(hWnd, IDC_TAB1), Main::Inst().items, "ccccccc", 2);
	TWin::Inst().hwnd = CreateDialog(NULL, MAKEINTRESOURCE(frmSecond), GetDlgItem(hWnd, IDC_TAB1), (DLGPROC)SecondProc);
	return TRUE;
	break;
}

Open in new window


screenshot about it
frmSecond = "IDD_FORMVIEW" type in visual studio.

IDC_TAB1 the tab control in resources.

What i need to do?

Ty!

Idk if it is corret, but i'm setting the x,y position to fix it. But when i create it, it should be inside the tabcontrol, no?=(

Hi dm0000,

IMO you have to move the child dialog to down/right because I think it overlaps the tabs of the tab control. And I think it's clear because for a tab control the client-rect equals the window-rect, so placing a child dialog on client coordinate 0, 0 causes it to be place at the top/left of the complete tab control.

I think (allthough I'm not sure coz I didn't test) you can use the TCM_GETITEMRECT message to ask the tab control about the rectangle you can use for the child dialog.

Hope that helps,

ZOPPO
