Need more power for your tab controls? SftTabs/OCX can implement tabbed forms, Wizard style forms and you can even use it as a simple tab strip.With its 75 basic tab styles, including dual-sided tab controls and notebook tabs, and the ability to customize each tab style extensively, the number of different looks is significant.
This is just one example of the 75 basic tab styles. And each can be further customized.
SftTabs/OCX supports Visual Basic 6.0. Even though it is an ActiveX control which conforms to the latest standards, it cannot be used with other control containers (such as Visual C++, Delphi, etc.) as these do not offer the required interfaces that our product requires for containment of controls within the tab control. It is possible to use the tab control without control containment in many other environments, however we only support this product when used with Visual Basic 6.0.This ActiveX control is implemented using dual interfaces, resulting in excellent performance, yet, the control is small and doesn't require any additional DLLs (no MFC or other run-time DLLs).
