Hiding Tabs

Recommended Posts


I have a form which contains a tabbed control. I created new tabs. Now what I want to do is basically hide the tabs on the top. So the user can't select the tab he wants to access. Depending on the action of the user, it will move him to the appropriate tab.

How can I do this?

Thanks in advance,

How about not allowing user to switch to another tab?

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#Include <GuiTab.au3>
Const $WM_NOTIFY = 0x4E
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
$Gui = GUICreate("Forced Tab Demo", 400, 300)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "GuiClose")
$TabControl = GUICtrlCreateTab(5, 5, 390, 250)
$TabSheet1 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Step #1")
$lbl1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Label1", 100, 100)
$TabSheet2 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Step #2")
$lbl2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Label2", 100, 150)
$TabSheet3 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Step #3")
$lbl3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Label3", 100, 200)
$btnBack = GUICtrlCreateButton("&Back", 100, 260, 100, 25)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "btnBackClick")
$btnNext = GUICtrlCreateButton("&Next", 200, 260, 100, 25)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "btnNextClick")
Global $activeTab = _GUICtrlTabGetCurSel($TabControl)

While 1

Func btnBackClick()
    If $activeTab = 0 Then Return
    $activeTab -= 1
    _GUICtrlTabSetCurFocus($TabControl, $activeTab)
Func btnNextClick()
    If $activeTab = (_GUICtrlTabGetItemCount($TabControl) - 1) Then Return
    $activeTab += 1
    _GUICtrlTabSetCurFocus($TabControl, $activeTab)
Func GuiClose()
Func On_WM_NOTIFY($hWnd, $Msg, $wParam, $lParam)
    If $wParam = $TabControl Then
        Local $stNMHDR = DllStructCreate("hwnd;uint;int code", $lParam)
        Local $code = DllStructGetData($stNMHDR, "code")
        $stNMHDR = 0
        If $code == $TCN_SELCHANGING And _GUICtrlTabGetCurFocus($TabControl) == $activeTab Then Return True
