on right-click, open in new tab

P: 14
I am creating an Access 2003 interface (.adp) for a SQL server 2000 backend and want to have some web browser-style features. I currently have a side panel that has the menu structure that can load various forms into a main panel but would like to have a tabbed pages feature like on web browsers. I.e. on right click have an option to open form in new tab. There are serveral questions surrounding this:
1. How do you alter the list of options shown on right-click?
2. How do you make new tabs on the fly and populate them with particular forms?
3. Can you have more than one (editable) copy of a form open at the same time showing different data?

Any help or advice would be appreciated. As would any other good UI suggestions, as this is a prototype to find out what can be done.

1. How do you alter the list of options shown on right-click?
By checking the Value of the Button Argument in the MouseDown() Event, or a Shortcut Menu.
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Private Sub Detail_MouseDown(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
  2. If Button = acRightButton Then
  3.   MsgBox "Right Button clicked"
  4. End If
  5. End Sub
2. How do you make new tabs on the fly and populate them with particular forms?
Are we talking about a Tabbed Dialog Control?
3. Can you have more than one (editable) copy of a form open at the same time showing different data?
By creating a New Instance of a Form.
