CallBack

Function

Yes

Optional name of a Callback Function that receives all %WM_COMMAND and %WM_NOTIFY messages for the control.

 

If a callback for the control is not designated, you must create a dialog Callback Function to process messages from your control.

 

If the Callback Function processes a message, it should return %TRUE (non-zero) to prevent the message being passed unnecessarily to the dialog callback (if one exists). The dialog callback should also return %TRUE if the notification message is processed by that Callback Function.

 

Remarks

 

This command not only creates a page in a TAB control but also create a new window that will be used to add more child controls over the TAB page. The new window has all the characteristics of a read window: can contains child controls, can be resized (see TAB automatic handling events), can responds to events using dedicated callback function.
