Difference between the TabStrip and MultiPage controls??

I am designing a task form template in Outlook 2007 in which I want to use

either the MultiPage or TabStrip controls. They look similar, what is the

difference? I have noticed that with the TabStrip control there are not dots

in the background (like there are on the form in design mode), but there are

in the MultiPage control. (I can still place controls on the TabStrip,

though??) Also, I see that I cannot modify the font of the tab labels in the

MultiPage control but I can in the TabStrip control. I tried to look the two

controls up in your book (MS OL 2007 Programming) but only found a paragraph

on the MultiPage control and didn't see anything on the TabStrip control.

Could you shed some light on the differences between the two so that I know

which fits the functionality that I need? Thanks so much!

If you want to place controls on the design surface, use a multi-page

control. I can't think of any scenarios where tabstrip would be preferred

unless modifying the font of the tab labels is the most important feature

you need.
