A resizable TabControl

A few notes about CXPropertyPage (A class derived from CDialog).

This window class is contained by one CXPropertySheet. The text of item from CXPropertySheet will have the text for the resource string with the same identifier as the dialog. The CXPropertyPage has one m_bAutoSize member with the following property: if this is set, the first child of the property page is resized when the property page is resized. It is useful when you have in the property sheet one window control. The value of this member can be changed by operator =.

How to use these

The first is to add all sources files (X*.h, X*.cpp) into your project, and copy from the demo project the IDR_XTABCTRL accelerator.

Using CXPropertySheet.

Create a few dialogs in the resource designer with the popup style removed. Add from class wizard a new class for each new dialog. Into the source files of these dialogs, change the "CDialog" string to "CXPropertyPage" (both header and source). Now you have for each dialog one class CXPropertyPage. Declare as member one CXPropertySheet. Call at initializing time the
  Create(TCXS_UP | TCXS_DOWN] | WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE, CRect(0,0,100,100), pParentWnd, nID);
function. The next step is adding pages into this class. So, call
  AddPage(new CXPropertyPage1, hIcon, lParam), 
   CXPropertyPage1 is the name of one of the dialogs generated by the class wizard,
   hIcon is the icon which you want to be displayed on item,
   lParam is user data.

The last two parameter are optionals. The easiest way to show how all these work, please see OnInitDialog from demo project.

  • Drawing tabs and text with the system colors

    The only problem that I found with the source that you have furnished, is that the tabs used fixed colors for
    the background and the text.
    Below is a simple remedy to the problem, which I have implemented in XTabCtrl.cpp:

    static CPen _penG(PS_SOLID, 1, RGB(128,128,128));
    static CPen cpBackground(PS_SOLID, 1, (OLE_COLOR)GetSysColor(COLOR_BTNFACE));

    static CPen _penGG(PS_SOLID, 1, RGB(192,192,192));
    static CPen cpShade(PS_SOLID, 1, (OLE_COLOR)GetSysColor(COLOR_BTNSHADOW));

    static CPen _penW(PS_SOLID, 1, RGB(255,255,255));
    static CPen cpWindowColor(PS_SOLID, 1, (OLE_COLOR)GetSysColor(COLOR_WINDOW));

    static CPen _penB(PS_SOLID, 1, RGB(0,0,0));
    static CPen cpLetterForeColor(PS_SOLID, 1, (OLE_COLOR)GetSysColor(COLOR_BTNTEXT));

  • Use!?
