I've made another addin for AsmEdit that can also
be used as a standalone application.

It is a visual Tab control build program. The
output build code does not create any dialogs.
All of the controls are created at run time.

If there is enough request to use dialogs for
the controls instead, I will add that option.

Some of the features are Left, Top, Right, and
Bottom Tabs, Buttons, Images, Tooltips,
Ownerdrawn, etc.
(You can create a maximum of 16 Tabs), which
should be enough for most applications.

If you take the output code segments and copy
them in your application, you might have problems
assembling your program, if you used some of the
newer Tab control styles.

There is a file called WindowInc.txt included
with the package, copy those Tab styles to your
Windows.inc file.

TIP! If you select the Button style you might
want to select the WS_EX_DLGMODALFRAME style also,
otherwise the Tab control will not have a frame
around it.

If nothing else it's fun to play with.

Let me know if you have any problems.

Ewayne, I been playing with the tabcontrol and I like it.

what does the n mean for a value under tab control parameters with the x position box and y position box?

Hi John,

I'm not quite sure what you mean.

The defaults should be:

0 X Position
0 Y Position
400 Width
300 Height
4 Number of Tabs

I take it thatb x position and y position changes the position of the tabs?

I going to try it now:)

Just tried it, x and y changes the position of the control.

The reason I called the zeroes n in the first place was that the edit box is cutting them off on my windows xp machine.

In fact all of thew numbers are cut off on the bottom.

This is not a complaint, I can live with it.

Hi John,

The X and Y position sets the X and Y coordinates
of the Tab control within it's parent window or
within the screen if the Tab control has the popup

I'm sending a picture of what the dialog should
look like.

Are you using an english character set?

Ewayne, i cannot get the EM_STREAMIN and EM_STREAMOUT to work on my richedit. I keep getting the program to crash. Do you know what is wrong with it?

To roticv,

There could be several things wrong.

I will need to look at your code to tell you
whats wrong.

Hi Ewayne,

Your TabBuild works properly on windows 98 and windows xp.
Nice addin. My opinion is that you have to add it to ASMEDIT Pack.
Thank you for sharing your experience with us.

To ipadilla,

If I ever get the new AsmEdit released all of
the addins will be a part of AsmEdit.

I just wonder why there are such little infomation found on richedit for asm or for c. More often do I get to see info on richedit for mfc. Lucky i had the the Iczelion's tutorial 33, 34 and 35.

Ewayne, do you happen to know how to create toolbars like that of winword or some other programs where the toolbar could be drag around?
Posted on 2002-05-14 21:18:59 by roticv
To roticv,

There are several ways that you can make a drag
around Toolbars.

There are docking Toolbars and home built moveable

AsmEdit use a home built moveable Toolbar.

RadAsm uses some type of moveable Toolbar.

In Hutch's package there is a sample of a docking

Moveable Toolbars are fairly easy to create, if
I get a couple of minutes I'll create a sample
program for you.

Thanks... Ewyane... It's nice to see you so helpful =)
Posted on 2002-05-14 21:48:38 by roticv
To roticv,

Here's a little test program that has a movable
Toolbar, it's only one of many ways that it can
be done.

Ewayne. I had been waiting eagerly for this codes.:)

To roticv,

Your welcome, I hope it helps.

You can get fancy with it and remove the titlebar,
resize it to vertical or horizontal increase the
number of rows or columns, snap it in place, etc.

Ewayne, can i have a look at your splash.dll source code from your word edit. I just wonder how to create a proper dll using asm. The tutorial is not that helpful on this matter. Thanks...
Posted on 2002-05-18 09:32:44 by roticv
To roticv,

Go to my web site and download Splash, the source
is included
