Return Value

Newly created PropertyManager page tab


The ID argument provides an add-in with a way of identifying which tab is being handled when one of the callbacks is called; for example, when IPropertyManagerPage2Handler8::OnTabClicked is called. The IDis passed as an argument, identifying the tab clicked.


The Bitmap argument allows you to place a bitmap before the text on the tab. The argument is the full path and filename to a bitmap on disk. The bitmap should be 16 x 18 (width x height) pixels. It can be either 16 or 256 colors. Any portions of the bitmap that are RGB(255,255,255) will be transparent, letting the tab background show through. If this argument is an empty string or not the name of a valid bitmap file, no bitmap is placed on the tab.


Use this method to add tabs to your PropertyManager page before the page is displayed. It cannot be used if the page is already displayed.


Use IPropertyManagerPageTab::Caption to add a caption to the tab.
