'''General Guidelines'''
+
 
+
If a control affects only one tab or page in the dialog, place it on that tab/page. If it affects every tab/page in the dialog, place it outside, for example beside the window's OK and Cancel buttons.
+
 
+
Make sure changes on one tab will not change options on another tab.
+
 
+
===Tabbed Dialogs===
+
 
+
'''When to Use'''
+
 
+
Use tabbed dialogs when you have a limited number of tabs (max. 6).
+
If you cannot see all the tabs without scrolling or splitting them into multiple rows, you are probably using too many and should use a paged dialog instead.

===Paged Dialogs===
+
 
+
'''When to Use'''
+
 
+
Always use paged dialogs for configuration dialogs - assuming that there is more than one section of options to be configured.
+
For other dialogs, use paged dialogs if there are too many tabs to put them into a tabbed dialog.

+
===Accessibility===
+
Do not assign accelerator keys to tab and paged dialog labels. Assign an access key to every other control on each page, however.
