Hi, Aaron

Yes.

If your parent ZClass is constructed properly, you should be able to add
the parent class's management tabs by setting a "view". On the "Views"
tab, look in the Method list for
propertysheets/[ParentClassPropertySheetName]/manage.  The properties on
that sheet are accessible just like any of the child class's properties.
