Tabs on the left and horizontal text

Recommended Posts


Hello all

A little question about tabs. I have made a little gui with tabs on the left side. Is it possible to make the text/label horizontal instead of vertical?

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <TabConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form2 = GUICreate("Form1", 630, 316, 204, 296)
GUICtrlSendMsg(-1, $TCM_SETITEMSIZE, 0, BitOR(50, BitShift(50, -16)))

$TabSheet1 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("TabSheet1")
$TabSheet2 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("TabSheet2")
$TabSheet3 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("TabSheet3")
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

Hi Hest,

Try taking a look at the example code in help under the GUICtrlCreateTabItem topic.

The example has three tabs that are horizontal.

lol, took me quite a lot to find this one, I guess that my searching capabilities are rusty. hope this is what you're looking for. By the way, it's using Malkey's string rotate function.
