    I'm trying to create an option dialog similiar to that in VS2005 or other newer applications, were there is a tree view/nodes on the left side and on the right side, there node related controls are displayed. I tried it by using a simple treeview and always recreate/hide the controls on the right side according to the selected treeview node, but I think there must be a better way. Isn't there any container controls which handles those stuff automatically?
    Thanks,

    Hello Joerg,

    Firstly there are no differences in using our controls or those provided by MS - the pattern is the same.

    You can use on the left a treeview control, and on the right dynamically change user controls that contain all the options elements that you need. Further you can use as proof of concept our QuickStart application which handles the UI in a similar way. You can find it in our CodeLibrary at:

    Hello Dimitar,

    thank you very much for your quick response.
    Yes, you are right, the quickstart application is a really good source.
    Actually helped me a lot to improve the "option dialog" forms.
    By the way, can the r.a.d.controls be used in Access 2003/2007?
    If not any plan to support Access in the near future?

    Thanks

    Hello Joerg,
    We are glad we were able to help you for your options dialog. Other than that we believe only ActivX third party controls can be used inside an Access form designer. As far as we are aware there are no managed extensions, at least for the time being.

    Sincerely yours,
