    Thanks for the input. I thought that if it had not been tried before I'd give it a whirl.

    It was a thought. All a tab contol does is highlight "one of many." So does a series of 'pushlike radio buttons."

    You still have to bring the correct screen to the top when the tab - or button - selection changes. It's an option.

    Heck, you could almost do it with a header control, too.

    I'm sorry, but I am having a really hard time wrapping my mind around the reason for the reference other than you can use a toolbar with a bit more overhead to mimic the actions of a tab control, ...

    I use a series of tab controls as multi-selection, on the fly, reconfigurable button bars.

    Multi-selection as in the first tab bar contains the sort category I'm interested in, the second bar contains the types of categorys, and the third bar of tabs contains the sort range limitation.

    The middle row with just the word "Music" in it gets loaded with all the content categories managed by the Scott Studios System, the first row determines which range selection is shown in the third bar, Artist & Title get alpha tabs, Length loads a series of "Time's" into the tabs, and CatID loads 0-9 into the tabs.

    started a topic Tab Control

    Tab Control

    Just out of curiosity, has any attempted using a tab control without corresponding child dialogs/windows?
