    Not sure what you are asking but if you are referring to creating tab common controls using msvc++ ide GUI resource editor then maybe this will provide you with some relevant information?

    If you are referring to tab common controls, as described above, then you must attach the tab pages (dialogs or controls) programmatically; they cannot be set within a resource script. In this case, it is often simpler to create the tab common control in code and restrict your use of resources to dialogs with std/user controls (buttons, edits etc), menus, images etc. I think the link above provides an example of creating a 'tabbed dialog', extracted from a win32 example on msdn.

    If you are looking for an mfc answer then perhaps this may be of some interest.
