WD17 Un-Tab a control

Startbeitrag von Pragma Tix am 29.11.2012 17:10

One of the things I have to solve before releasing my tabbed window - dockable panes manager is: I have to "Untab" a control at runtime.
A Control / Control-Template,Internal window can belong to a Tab-Pane. Now I want to invalidate this "binding" .. at runtime
A MyControl..TabPanel = Null // or 0 does not exist. Any ideas ?
In case that this is mission impossible I have to create my own Tab Control, indeed not that problematic, (except for respecting GUI templates) ... But I hope that I don't have to create 'em 'cause this will break a lot of existing code and will require a lot of additional work.

Feedback welcome,


Maybe ..
//Disassociate from Tab, move handler to main window/Target DockPanel
res = API( "user32", "SetParent", hwndTab, hwndTargetDockWin)

But due to fact that none of us "plain vanilla" developers have an Windev GUI insight , this can be problematic.. Will see..
However, I hope there is a GUI champion, willing to help.

setting the control invisible ?
or remove the control with controldelete ?

as far as I know, this is not possible... But before there was tabs, there was panes, and the tabs were simulated using them... and it is possible to assign a pane at runtine...

Best regards

Thanks for the feedback.
1) The windows API does not help in this case.
2) A simple controldelete() makes no sense at all.
However, due to this limitations I was forced to rethink and to find another (smarter) way to implement window docking.
.....I am quit happy with the results.. For those who are interested.. Stay tuned.

I came across this post talking about tabs as well. There is also a demo project. It looks like this guy draws his own tabs to simulate a tabcontrol.
Maybe it can be of any help. At first I got some errors (WD17 is more strict), but it is running now. Although I don't see any tabs???? But I am out of time atm for things like this.

It also contains a lot of API stuff, which may be interesting.
