Is it possible to show a "close button" on each tab of a CExtTabPageContainerWhidbeyWnd (or more generally a CExtTabPageContainerWnd), in a SDI application.

The flag " __ETWS_EX_CLOSE_ON_TABS" seems to work only on MDI application ...

What I have done :

m_TabPage.GetSafeTabWindow()->ModifyTabWndStyleEx(0, __ETWS_EX_CLOSE_ON_TABS);

My "m_TabPage" control is a derived object from CExtTabPageContainerWhidbeyWnd .

Thanks in advance for any help!

 PS :  Writing the following lines will show a general "close button" for all the tabs, but not an "individual" close button for each tab.

Thank you for your reply.

You can close this ticket, my problem is solved. My program is linked statically with MFC and I did not include into my .rc2 :

#if (!(defined _AFXDLL && !defined __STATPROFUIS_WITH_DLLMFC__) )

    #include <Resources/Resource.rc>


 Now, all is working fine !

The __ETWS_EX_CLOSE_ON_TABS extended tab window style works for any kind of tab windows: standing alone tabs, MDI tabs and tabs inside tab page containers. You can see the in-tab X-buttons on the Tab Containers dialog page in the <span class="newgreen">ProfUIS_Controls</b> sample application. We suspect there must be some other conditions specific for your app which does not allow the tab window to show in-tab X-buttons. Could you create some simplest possible test project containing tab page container from your project and send it to us?
