  • PBFORMS 1.51: Defauilt number of tabs in Tab Control

    I am starting to work with my first Tab Control dialog. It is not as intuitive that I hoped. I was hoping to be able to define the number of tabs, labels of the tabs, etc.

    PBForms appears to default at 5 tabs when creating a Tab Control with each tab called Tab 1, Tab 2, etc. Now I can very easily manipulate the code to support 3,4, 10, whatever I need. That's easy. However for code that needs to be reuseable and modified through a standard set of tools (KISS). I need a little help.

    Can you define the number of tabs (and the lables as a bonus) in the TAB CONTROL from PB FORMS 1.51?

    Is there sample of Tab Control created wit PB Forms and documented with the changes that the programmer had to make.

    I don't see one, but if you want to try QTAB, "quick tabs visual designer" go to the download section and give it a try. It's not perfect, but it will give you some help learning the tab control. It generates DDT and SDK style code.

      \pbwin80\samples\ddt\Tab Control\tabcontrol.bas an excellent example.

        The need to be able to quickly and easily make tab controls was one of the primary reasons I purchased FireFly. PBforms offers no practical way to design a tab control; you can add the control, but not much else.

          Thank you all for the references. I have checked them out and both ideas will be of assistance. I could have sworn that I could setup the TABS but may be mistaken.

          One of the reasons I selected PBFORMS is that it produces consistent repeatable code and enforces some standardization through by creating templates we can reuse.

          No problem. We bought PB/Win for performance, that was the primary decision.

          Again Thanks.
