Hi ProfUIS team,

I want to ask a question about your tab controls. I have a task to create an Excel 2007 UI for my application. I looked for excel like tabs at your samples and I didn’t find anything. So I want to know how can I implement these tabs at my application with using your library? I try to redesign your tab(and container) classes throw the inheritance. At result I have a lot of code and get some results like this:




 This is not excellent. This is a very poor analogy of excel tabs. You can look by yourself. Here is a true Excel UI:


Could you please describe me is this possible to create Excel 2007 tab control with using your library and without any additional great refactoring from my side?

We are sorry for the delay with this reply. First of all, the Excel style tabs task requires integration with scroll bars. Prof-UIS scroll bars (CExtScrollBar) support custom window integration. You can see toolbars and slider controls integrated into scroll bars in the AdoRecordsetView sample project. If you need true excel tabs, then you should CExtScrollBar windows and some container window integrated with it. This container windows should contain a toolbar with buttons and CExtTabFlatWnd tab control.

I didn’t receive any answer for my question. Are your still alive?

I pay for your library and I want to get answer for my question. If you stop development(and support) you should place this information on the main page of your website to warn potential users.
