Continuing along with my discovery of making useful applications, I was wondering about tab's (the ones you click to bring up a different menu). While I dislike the Win32 API, I find it rather unlikely this is my last encounter with it, so I may as well as figure it out. Menu's, buttons and all of that werent hard, and I havent done any searching on this, but I was wondering if you all knew of some good reading material or an open source program with tabs that I could pick apart.

I figure since MC uses tabs a lot Nick may at least be able to point me in the right direction.

Thanks, as always. You all are the best :)

Unfortunately, I know next to nothing about GUI programming with C++. I do all my GUI stuff in Java, which is simpler for a number of reasons. I also am not familiar with open-source programs with tabs, since most of the open-source programs I use are command-line only. :P

Are you sure there's no MFC tab control? My guess is that the tab contents are each their own window, and the tab control simply selects one of those windows to draw into its client space.

I think your best bet is to continue using Google or to hope Nick can give you some pointers from MUSHclient.
