| Tabdock 3.1.3
Bugfix release (see revisions.rtf for full details)
Two Major Improvements.
1) Extensively Updated. VS.Net Caption Style Now Adheres Closely To New Microsoft Applications.
With Pinnable Panels And Tabs.
2) The Control Now Has The Option To Use The New ITDockMoveEvents Interface.(Have More Control Over Docked Panels).
Panel Painting Is Now Much Better And Smoother.
Too Many Updates To Mention. Please Look At The Revision RTF To Get The Full History Of The Control.
On A Personal Note
I Would Like To Thank Neal Who Has Put A Lot Of Effort Into This Control.
Your Comments And Suggestions Are Greatly Appreciated.
Enjoy The Code!

Fantastic! I have been searching for
the new 'pinable' tabdock for VB6 for a
while now. Great job. 5 globes.

worse than ever. this version seems to
be more unstable than previous ones --
it's falling all over the place. i
think you guys are beating on a dead
horse. my advise is to start from
scratch but do it with usercontrols.
it's very hard to get a proper behavior
of VB Forms "sited" with SetParent --
just my $.02

This is just awesome. I have been
looking for something like this for a
while. I tried creating something
similar using a custom control and
picture boxes. This is much nicer.

I'd be interested in the
problems you seem to be having with the
control as it has been tested
extensively with NT and Windows Me (not
the best I know) without any problems.

Is it possible to save all the user
positions, states, sizes etc. and
recreate the user's last layout when
the program starts next? If so, could
you give a small example of how that
can be accomplished?
|6/9/2003 3:53:09 PM:Ackbar|
Looking really nice. But you still need
to be able to dock windows to the panel
without creating the tabbed interface.
The tabbed interface shouldn't be
automatic but instead optional by
dragging the form over a certain
portion of a docked form. Otherwise it
should dock as it previously did. Just
my thoughts. 5 globes.
|6/9/2003 5:00:12 PM:Ackbar|
Also in response to the quesiton about
remembering positions, use the
persistant property however it
apparently needs some fixing. If you
have an undocked window and persistant
is at false it will crash. Something
for you two to fix up :)

I am never surprised what Vlad would
come up with a better qulity codes(he
is one of few top programmers on
PSC).But also respect what NR/GN have
done.It did improve previous.It seems
to work ok on windows XP.

well, you've probably checked this
commercial attempt -
ioxp.asp. as far as i know their
products is a VB created control. they
had a lot of problems but slowly and
painfully debugged the "monster".
like the idea of a docking framework in
VB. maybe at this stage tabdock needs
more kind of a stabilizing release. the
new features are neat but there are
troubles with the foundation,
i'm sorry about my previous
probably a bit abrupt remark -- nothing
and 10x for keeping the spirit of PSC
|6/18/2003 5:40:48 AM:|
Nice work, really great. But I Still
have one problem. After compiling the
project into an ocx, I keep getting
errors when closing miy application. In
one off my docked forms I use a dsn
less database connection. On closing my
MDI Form the tabdock control is trying
to run the form load routine in my
docked form. This generates errors.
Could anybody help me??
|6/20/2003 4:08:14 AM:Neal Rushforth|
I've identified the cause of the
form_load problem, and this and other
bugs will be fixed in the next

Good code. 5 Globes.
Do you guys
intend on submitting a TabDock and

A MINOR bugs i
notices while playing with in on Win2k.
let me see if i can describe it... the
toolbar on the left is unpinned, (when
it hides) and you select another tool
bard to drag over the left toolbar,
that drag pic leaves what i can best
call a cursor turd... graphics drawn in
the left side when it maximized...

As Vlad has said , Innovasys products
are , as far as I know , developed in
VB. I've used DocStudioXP and it's
having too many features in it. Really
I request NR/GN not to incorporate
those many features in your OCX. Please
leave something for me to do as well !
Your current version is nice one.
I faced one problem though ; dont know
whether it's my VB 6.0 IDE problem or

What can be the problem ? I
couldn't figureout. It's not only on my
