Display only One Row of Tabs

If you have many property pages then the property sheet ends up showing multiple rows of tabs. Sometimes, the addition space required for the tabs is unacceptable. We can force the property sheet to use a single row of tabs by calling the CPropertySheet:: EnableStackedTabs(FALSE) before calling the DoModal() function.
	Propsheet.EnableStackedTabs(FALSE);

Alternatively, the call to EnableStackedTabs() can be placed in the overridden version of OnCreate() in the CPropertySheet derived class. This call should precede the call to the base class version of OnCreate().

    Call this member function to indicate whether to stack rows of tabs in a property sheet. By default, if a property sheet has more tabs than will fit in a single row in the width of the property sheet, the tabs will stack in multiple rows. To use scrolling tabs instead of stacking tabs, call EnableStackedTabs with bStacked set to FALSE before calling DoModal or Create.

    hi,
    i've already tried applying these two methods, but failed.
    Also when my tabs area gets wider than than property sheet area, the tabs doesn't adjust in two rows, rather the extra tabs goes out of sight.
    I've created some pages at runtime. The application is a Dialog Based App. In which, modeless property sheet is a child of main dlg box. It is created as below...
    //
    propSheet = (CPropSheet*)new CPropSheet("PS",this,0);
    propSheet->Create(this,WS_CHILD|DS_CONTROL);
    //
    If anyone could please help me out..., that'll be really nice.
    Thankyou.

  • Additional Space Not Utilized

    VC++ 5 doesn't make use of the additional space made available by using a single tab row. I found that the
    problem occurs because the style of the tab control is changed after the sheet resizes the screen elements
    (see DLGPROP.CPP). This problem can be corrected by overriding the OnInitDialog() function like so:
    
    

    BOOL CMyPropSheet::OnInitDialog()
    {
    if (!m_bStacked)
    {
    HWND hWnd = (HWND)::GetDlgItem(m_hWnd, AFX_IDC_TAB_CONTROL);
    ASSERT(hWnd != NULL);
    CWnd::ModifyStyle(hWnd, TCS_MULTILINE, TCS_SINGLELINE, 0);
    }

    return CPropertySheet::OnInitDialog();
    }

  • Display one row of tabs but there is line spacing

    //m_PropertySheet is object of CPropertySheet
    in the OnInitUpdate of my CFormView. It's working
    but there is "line spacing" in the CPropertyPage
    before displaying my other controls. When I select
    other CPropertyPage and select back the previous
    CPropertyPage, the "line spacing" is missing.
    I need the help to get rid the "line spacing" when
    that CPropertyPage is shown first time.
    Thank you first for advice.
