    There is a new sample project for testing this feature in the download.

    Please test and report back.
    Thanks Eduardo for this great tool
    There are one or two minor problems
    Tabs are not closed in right-to-left mode
    Dragging and dropping the tab is also not done well in this mode
    Please solve this problem

    Re: NewTab: tab control for VB6

    Dear Eduardo,

    I have started checking out the 'Forms mode'. And, I have to say that any amount of thanks is not enough for you. Wonderful! Absolutely wonderful!

    Just one quick request:
    --
    For SetActiveTab function, for the 2nd parameter (for NTFindTabMethodConstants), if you deem fit and if you feel it makes sense, then you may kindly please add ntFindCaptionAnywhere, ntFindCaptionFirst and ntFindCaptionLast also (of course with their respective functionalities). That would be quite helpful, I thought. The first matching tab for 'found anywhere', 'found at start' and 'found at the last' perhaps can be set as the active tab.
    --

    And, by the way, as far as I can observe, Debug.Print mMouseIsOverIcon_Tab is not commented out in the control's code. You may please comment it out in the next release. Otherwise, in the immediate window, it keeps printing -1.

    Thanks a TON, once again.

    Kind Regards.

    Re: NewTab: tab control for VB6

    Dear Eduardo,

    Greetings!

    In the following function, TabCaption is actually the added form's caption, as far as I can observe. So, is it possible to include FormTag parameter also so that is easier to check based on the form's tag (which can be a unique distinctive short string set by me) as to whether to add that form or not. My form's captions can become considerably lengthy sometimes. Hence, the request. If not possible to introduce a new parameter, possible to change the name TabCaption to TabCaptionOrTag so that you can check for both the form's caption and also tag?

    Re: NewTab: tab control for VB6

    Dear Eduardo,

    I found that:

    The following works
    ctab.TabCustomColor(1, ntCCForeColor) = vbGreen
    ctab.TabCustomColor(1, ntCCForeColorTabSel) = vbRed
    i.e. ForeColor is getting set correctly

    But, the following does not work
    ctab.TabCustomColor(1, ntCCBackColorTab) = vbRed
    ctab.TabCustomColor(1, ntCCBackColorTabSel) = vbGreen
    i.e. BackColor is not getting set at all.

    Am I doing any mistake? Kindly let me know. ctab is a normal NewTab only (i.e. TDIModeNone). Actually, with TDIModeForms also, I could not set the backcolor.

    By the way, if at all possible, kindly make ntCCBackColorTab as default for the 2nd param of TabCustomColor, so that I can just use ctab.TabCustomColor(1) = color. If you think ForeColor will be the one often used by users, then you can make that default too. Your decision, finally.

    Thanks a TON, as always, for all that you are doing for us.

    Kind Regards.

    It is the same explanation as for message #157.

    From inside the NewTab control I don't have access to form's properties. I see forms as windows. I can have the Caption because it is the caption of the window, but I cannot read the Tag property or other properties that have no related values to the window itself (at API level).

    For the color properties to work, the NewTab control should not be using the Windows theme (visual style). ForeColor related ones work anyway, but only those.

    The Style must be plain or other non-windows.

    I made the parameter optional being ntCCBackColorTab the default one. That will be in the next release.
    But I'll wait until understanding how the find captions "as any" should work, so I make all the updates in the same release.

    // Could you please explain how exactly that should work? I guess they would be partial matches of tab captions? //
    yes, partial matches. 'Anywhere' would mean any part of the caption - EITHER from the start to some middle portion (OR) from some middle portion to the end (OR) from some middle portion to some other other middle portion. When you are searching for partial matches (with 'Anywhere' option), if in case you find the whole caption itself to be matching fully, then that would count as a 'successful find' as well, I feel. Basically, an Instr (on the caption string) which returns nonzero will do? By the way, since there can be more than one tab matching a partial string, if at all you deem fit and if at all possible (considering your time constraints and all that) you can provide optional 3rd and 4th parameters which say from which tab (inclusive) to which tab (inclusive) the find operation needs to be effected.
    SetActiveTab "string to find", ntFindCaption, [StartingFromWhichTab=1], [UptoWhichTab=N]
    (N - last tab)

    // I can have the Caption because it is the caption of the window, but I cannot read the Tag property or other properties ... .. . //
    The situation is the same whether NewTab control is used as an ocx OR inbuilt into a standard exe project. Right?

    // For the color properties to work, the NewTab control should not be using the Windows theme (visual style). ForeColor related ones work anyway, but only those. The Style must be plain or other non-windows. //
    Thanks. Will check it out.

    // I made the parameter optional being ntCCBackColorTab the default one. That will be in the next release. //
    Thanks, Eduardo.

    Thanks a LOT, for all that you do for us. Thanks.

    No, if you put the control in a standard exe you can access any property of the forms of the local project.

    I am using your control in a standard exe project only. So, you mean to say that in that case its possible for you to give access to the form's Tag property in the TDIBeforeNewTab function via TabCaptionOrTag parameter? Or, you are suggesting me something else?

    'TabCaptionOrTag' - referring to what I had suggested in my post no. 164

    Kind Regards.

    Oh. Okay. I understand now. That's fine then. I will manage with captions itself.

    Please describe the scenario where you need that. Let's see how it could be done in another way.
    I was just thinking of tags as an extra layer of convenience. That's all. So, no special scenario as such. Whatever facilities you have provided as of now itself are simply splendid.

    I take this opportunity to once again thank you for your fabulous control.

    Bringing in "Forms Mode" (that too, in such an easy manner) is mighty useful and fantastic. Thanks a TON, as always.

    Hi
    Normally, there is no problem
    After changing the size of the window or maximized, the place of the forms that are opened inside the tab will be moved
    By changing the size of the form, the content inside the tab is messed up
    The location of the form that opens inside the tab should be 0 from the top and left side

    Hello. I fixed the main issue of the positioning on resize, but regarding all the other options I'm considering what to do.
    I'm thinking of limiting TDI mode and RightToLeft to Top Orientation only... Name:  emoji thinking 1.png

    I tested it, now there is no problem
    In my opinion, the two main modes are important, the other modes are not used much (left to right And right to left)
    But if you have time, work on other modes as well
    Thank you very much for your great work, it is very useful for me and I am going to use it in a project

    Re: NewTab: tab control for VB6

    Hi Eduardo, another problem that bothers me is that when I use the shell for the form, the form window is displayed in tabs.
    I indicated with a red box that the window will be displayed in the leaves
    If the rest of the forms were opened without a frame, would this problem be solved?

    I have to say that I've read the above message several times and I have no idea what you are talking about. I can't understand the explanation nor the image.

    Please try to explain the issue with other words. For example the phrase "when I use the shell for the form" is very disconcerting to me.

    I mean software skins for beautifying the form like CodJock Skinning , ...
    Tools to create beautiful forms
    The form is displayed as a window in the tabs

    Ahhhhh, then the TDI mode might be incompatible with CodeJock Skin component...
    Or something should be made in the Skin component configuration side to avoid those issues.

    Unfortunately the skin is placed on all forms and the TDI mode does not work by default and is displayed as another window in the tab.
    I don't know how to solve the problem.

    I never used CodeJock components. To find a solution would require to study the documentation of the skin component, how to avoid applying skin to certain forms or elements.

    I tried with some other tools and it was the same
    If the forms that were in the open tab were without frames, I think the problem would be solved
    That is, only the form page should be displayed in the sheet, not the entire window
    Form2.BorderStyle = 0
    Form3.BorderStyle = 0
    You can test with this mode?

    To test what?

    BorderStyle 0 are not treated for TDI mode (anyway I don't understand what you mean).

    Re: NewTab: tab control for VB6

    Any test that involves having the CodeJock skin component, I won't be able to perform it because I don't have it (and don't want to install it).

    Convert your form to a user control.
    If you insist in having a form in a form then use the SetParent API, but you can get strange behavior

    I issued an update to make this possible, please update.

    Then to hide the home tab, add this line somewhere (Form_Load is a good place):

    Code:
    TabVisible(0) = False

    Re: NewTab: tab control for VB6

    Hi Eduardo

    Is possible to use this control integrated in one project without using ocx?

    I've created a small project just for testing and adding the source code of the control (creating a group of projects), works fine in the IDE but I can't compile it since it asks for a binary compatibility file. When I setup the binary compatibility then appears some errors like "Get instruction missed..."

    OCX works fine but should be redistributed, registered...

    Thanks

    Re: NewTab: tab control for VB6

    First compile the OCX to have a copy of it in order to set the binary compatibility. Then you should be able to add the .ctl file to any project without the need to distribute the OCX file.

    I can't compile the OCX with binary compatibility since it shows same errors like compiling it with the whole project. I've readed the thread and I guess this only will work in OCX mode

    Thanks anyway

    Yes, of course.

    If you want to integrate this control into a standard exe project, then you don't need a project group but only the standard exe project and add all the files to it.

    I've tried it but doesn't work. I have a project that uses the ocx version so I've tried to add all the control files to it and remove the ocx reference, no errors in that part.

    When I create a empty form and try to add a newtab control it stops in this sentence:

    Attachment 191072

    EDITED: I''ve found the trick. The file pagNewTabTabs is referenced to "NewTabCtl" that is the original project:

    Code:
    Begin NewTabCtl.NewTab NewTab1
    I've changed that for my project name and all seems work fine (also changed pagNewTabThemes)

    Thanks!
