Add a simple tab control that shows the opened child windows in an MDI application
This class adds a simple tab control in a WTL based MDI application. It is partly based on the freeware MFC version from Dundas Software available at:
First, include the header file and create a
CMDITabImpl member in the main frame class.
class CMainFrame : public ....
Then attach to the control in main frame's
LRESULT OnCreate(UINT , WPARAM ,
LPARAM , BOOL& )
Then you must add an
UpdateLayout() function in main frame to place the tab control correctly. If anybody finds a solution for WTL that won't require this extra code, please let me know.
void UpdateLayout(BOOL bResizeBars = TRUE)
This class is written for learning WTL, so there are surely lots of bugs in the implementation. And some features are not implemented yet, like icon support and context menu. I will work on them later when I get more time. Cheers!
