Dynamic form switching

Situation:
In the process of building a wondrous desktop form to display "grand
functionality". .. Access has presented me with the challenge of combining
multiple forms onto one single unbound form utilizing Tab controls as a way
to switch out other unbound multifunctional data display forms. This is
inside an ADP, but of course that doesn't matter in this case - it does the
same thing in an MDB.

Problem:
While it is easy to drop a form onto a tab control to achieve this
functionality, I found that certain events simply stopped firing on 3rd
party grid controls that I have used (virtually problem free) for years. I
have been through the ringer with the controls and there just isn't a
solution there. Ridding of the controls is definitely not an option since
there are hundreds of instances... Just to clarify, the controls work fine
until they become a control... on a subform of a form... the control works
fine when running the subform as an independent parent instance.

Question: (thinking "outside the box" may certainly help here)
Throughout the application I use form array variables to display multiple
instances of the same form for user comparative reasons. This makes me
wonder if there is a solution using similar tactics with the parent form.
Has anyone successfully populated (for instance) a "Bound Object Frame" or
some other type control with an instance of a form? The question redefined
would be "What can I do to display a form on a form... without using it as a
subform?". I realize I could baby-sit the child form position and
visibility, but that would be option #2 for now.

Much Thanks

Greetings, I'm attempting to create a tabbed box with CSS and Javascript and am having some problems. I have three tabs and three tab content areas. When the page is loaded, two of the three content areas are set to "display:none;". When a user clicks a tab, I call a function that changes the display style of the appropriate tab page to "display:block;". This is fine, as the correct block is displayed. The problem lies with Mozilla....
