How to attach a tab control to a window (Visual C++)

P: 37

I have a short Visual C++ program which creates a window. My program is
as follows :

#include "stdafx.h"
#include <afxwin>

class COurApp : public CWinApp
virtual BOOL InitInstance();

class COurWnd : public CFrameWnd
Create(0, TEXT("My App"));

class myTab : public CTabCtrl
CRect(20, 30, 180, 230), this, 0x1006);

BOOL COurApp::InitInstance(void)
m_pMainWnd = new COurWnd;


// At this point, I would like to create a tab and attach to the window.
// I tried :
// m_wndMyTabCtrl = new myTab;
// but got an "undeclared indentifier" compiler error message.

return TRUE;

COurApp AnApplication;

I wonder if someone could please show me how to create an object of type 'myTab' and attach it to the window? Your help is much appreciated!

YYou are going to need to put it inside a CView, if you are using MFC then I seriously suggest you use the APP Wizard to create you initial framework rather than write it yourself like this otherwise you are likely to run into lots of problems with bits that MFC will assume are there that you wont have implemented.
