Tabbed Views

Here is a class CTabFrm that implements an MDI Frame (CMDIChildWnd) that holds


Up to 150 views.


You don’t need to modify your views,just use this MDI frame with tab support.


You organize views in groups (up to 10 groups)


Each group can Hold up to 15 views.


You Can Select (Replace) a View using Tabcontrol o a command



 


To Configure a group your of tabs:


Fill in this struct


struct SELECTOR_VIEWS


{


int m_nViews; // number of tab for this group


char** m_prompt; // text of each tab


CRuntimeClass** m_listview ; // views associate with each tab


char* m_NomeGruppo; // group name


};


 


To Configure your CTabFrm:


Fill in this struct


struct GROUP_SELECTOR_LIST


{


int m_nGruppi; // haw many groups I have


int m_nGruppoIniziale; // what is initial group


BOOL m_bTab; // tab control STYLE TCS_TABS (TRUE) or TCS_BUTTONS (FALSE)


BOOL m_bBottom; // tab control STYLE TCS_BOTTOM


SELECTOR_VIEWS* m_ListaGruppi;


};

The Class CtabFrm implements 28 commands :


COMMANDS FOR SETTING A GROUP

IDM_SELECTOR_G1 (select group 1)
IDM_SELECTOR_Gxxx (select group xxx)
IDM_SELECTOR_G10 (select group 10)

COMMANDS FOR CHANGE VIEW IN THE CURRENT GROUP

IDM_REPLACE_VIEW1 (SELECT ITEM 1 IN THE CURRENT GROUP)
IDM_REPLACE_VIEWxxx (SELECT ITEM xxx IN THE CURRENT GROUP)
IDM_REPLACE_VIEW15 (SELECT ITEM 15 IN THE CURRENT GROUP)

COMMANDS FOR CHANGE TABCONTROL STYLE

IDM_ TAB_BUTTON (TAB STYLE)
IDM_
TAB_BUTTON (BUTTON STYLE)
IDM
_TAB_BOTTOM (MOVE BUTTONS DOWN)

After the configuration the look of your application is


Right clicking Tab button you can change style

To use the class you have two choices:


A) method 1


derive your class





// Overrides the method
virtual void OnGetGroups(GROUP_SELECTOR_LIST** gruppo);

void CMYFrame:: OnGetGroups(GROUP_SELECTOR_LIST** gruppo)
{
*gruppo = g1;
}

if (you want to reserve pixel il the left side of your frame or in the down site of your frame)
// Overrides the method
virtual void OnReserved(int& dx,int& dy);

void CMYFrame:: OnReserved(int& dx,int& dy
{
x = 160; //reserve 160 pixel in the left side of my frame
}


 


B) method 2


Use the configurable class CTabFrame which allows you to use it directly ,just put this code in your application methos InitInstance() :



CMultiDocTemplate* pDocTemplate;
pDocTemplate = new CMultiDocTemplate(
IDR_TABPROTYPE,
RUNTIME_CLASS(CTabProjDoc),
RUNTIME_CLASS(CTabFrame), // custom Tab MDI child frame
RUNTIME_CLASS(CTabProjView)); //default view
AddDocTemplate(pDocTemplate);

// BEGIN config your CTabFrame

CTabFrame::SetSelector(g1);
//CTabFrame::SetTabReserved(160,0); // SPACE ON THE LEFT LIKE ACCESS
// CTabFrame::SetTabContext(UINT idsel,UINT idnosel) // your custom context menu
// END CONFIG


In my example I use the second method



TabFrm.cpp TabFrm.h (base class)
TabFrame .cpp TabFrame.h (configurable base class)
