Handling tabs in unmanaged VC++

Handling tabs in unmanaged VC++

Handling tabs in unmanaged VC++

I'm new to VC++ but used to languages/architectures like C#, Flex, VB, etc. In most of those languages, tab controls are handled like containers, where the OS and/or runtime handle creating the tabs, switching between them, etc. It looks to me like VC++ (with MFC) does things at a lower level.

My question is - is there a preferred way to handle tab controls in MFC programming? Do you create a control for each tab, then show/hide each one as the tabs change?

RE: Handling tabs in unmanaged VC++

You use property sheets.  Each sheet is designed as a dialog without an OK/Cancel button.  They are added to the property sheet control which manages them.  You can tell it whether or not to save the contents before moving to the next tab.
