Please teach a part equivalent to CTabCtrl in Prof-uis.

We have three types of tabs:

1)    The CExtTabWnd class implements a single line tab window. There is a set of different styled versions of this class: CExtTabFlatWnd, CExtTabButtonsWnd, CExtTabWhidbeyWnd, and CExtTabOneNoteWnd. It’s not difficult to create a new themed version as it is demonstrated in the following test project:

2)    The CExtTabMdiWnd class implements a single line MDI tabs window. There is a similar set of styled MDI tabs.

3)    The CExtTabPageContainerWnd implements a container window which uses CExtTabWnd single line tabs to change the selected window. There is also a similar set of styled tab page containers.

All classes are not based on the CTabCtrl class.

When I want to use CTabCtrl by all means.

Should I just use CTabCtrl?

If you need a control which contains only a list of tab items like a CTabCtrl, the best option is CExtTabWnd. If you need a control which works as a container for page windows like a tabbed property sheet, CExtTabPageContainerWnd will certainly be better.
