    Exclamation Tab order in Tab Control

    Hey,

    I have a modeless dialog (as the main window) which contains a tab control. For each tab I have a child window.

    My problem lies in tabbing through the controls. As of now I can only tab through the controls in the main dialog. That is, the only control here is the tab control.

    What I want to achieve is to be able to tab through the controls on the current active tab's page.

    Any idea on how to do this?

    Thanks!

    Are you giving the controls the WS_TABSTOP window style when you are creating them?

    Of course.

    I found the solution, though. I had to set the main dialog's Control Parent property to TRUE and all the child dialogs' Control property to TRUE.
