  • Tab controls?

    How are the tab/folder type windows in the control panel basically created? I don't know what they're called, but I'm referring to the tabs near the top that can be clicked to change everything within the frame, as in the Display section. The tabs there are "Background, Screen saver, Appearance, and Settings". What are these called? Are they custom controls or are the frames manually drawn into the window and changed with mouse hit testing?

    There is the Basic Tab Control found in the Common Controls. Do
    a search in the Source Code Forum, you will find several
    examples. There is some SDK style versions and Jim Hugely posted
    a DDT version. Also Chris Boss EZGUI handles Tab creation for
    you.

    Most of the Tabbed dialogs you see are call Property Sheets. They
    are essentially the same as a Tabbed dialog, but with additional internal functionality that will make life easy for you. It is recomended to use Property Sheets over the basic Tab control.

    So the Key words to search are: Tab Control,Property Sheets a.k.a Wizards.

    I can email several examples to you in PBDLL and C.

      Jules,
      Thanks a bunch. Will search now that I know what I'm looking for. I would like to see a couple of examples using PBDLL that you have. My email is listed in my profile (now!).
      Thanks again,

        I found the perfect thing in the source code forum (your DDT example ). Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. Don't worry about emailing me any other examples after all, this one will be just fine for starters.
        Thanks again,
        Todd Wasson
