TabPanel within TabPanel
Date: 12.12.02 05:10 (Thu, 12 Dec 2002 15:10:10 +1100)
From: Gerd Wilmer
Is it possible to use several TabPanels hierarchical?
i.e. have the MainPanel with tabs like Sumary, Accounting, Itinerary,
etc
on the Accoutng tab have another TabPanel with tabs like Cost,
Receipts, Invoices, etc

It seems to work, but when I navigate on the secondary panel, RB seems
to get confused on which PanelControl to activate
and I end up on the MainPanel with graphics from the secondary one

RS says it's not supported.

It's not currently supported by REALbasic but it may be supported for our
next release (v5).

However, tabpanels inside of other tabpanels is not good UI at all. You
should seriously consider a different approach.

Not supported by RB. You can simulate it using several canvas for the
tabs and one invisible tabPanel or pagePanel, depending on your RB
version.

...or you could hire me... :p
