Right aligned Tabs

6 posts in this topic

This is my first post at these forums so please forgive me if I miss any info you may need to help.

I have been using AutoIt for quite some time now but haven't used tabs much. What I am trying to do is create tabbed section in my window but have the tabs appear in the right side on the top of the control (opposite of default). I have tried many of the control styles that I found in the help reference but am unable to find the right one or combination. If someone knows a work around or the correct control style that would be great.

Thanks.

cloudd901,

Is this what you wanted? ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$gui = GUICreate ("Mirrored Test", 400, 300, -1, -1, BitOR ($WS_CAPTION, $WS_SYSMENU), $WS_EX_LAYOUTRTL)

$tab = GUICtrlCreateTab(10, 10, 200, 100)

    $tab0 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("tab0")
    GUICtrlCreateLabel("label0", 30, 80, 50, 20)
    $tab0OK = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK0", 20, 50, 50, 20)
    $tab0input = GUICtrlCreateInput("default", 80, 50, 70, 20)

    $tab1 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("tab----1")
    GUICtrlCreateLabel("label1", 30, 80, 50, 20)
    $tab1combo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 20, 50, 60, 120)
    GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Trids|CyberSlug|Larry|Jon|Tylo", "Jon") ; default Jon
    $tab1OK = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK1", 80, 50, 50, 20)

    $tab2 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("tab2")
    GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_SHOW)  ; will be display first
    GUICtrlCreateLabel("label2", 30, 80, 50, 20)
    $tab2OK = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK2", 140, 50, 50)

    GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")    ; end tabitem definition

    GUICtrlCreateLabel("label3", 20, 130, 50, 20)

GUISetState ()

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg ()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

But do read this AFTER you have tried the script! :evil:

In case you had not noticed immediately, the entire window is reversed! So it might not be quite what you were looking for!

Close, but not quite. The tabs looked perfect, but I need the window to stay normal... lol

That is cool though.

cloudd901,

Sorry about that - but it was too good a chance to miss! :evil:

cloudd901,

Just on the off-chance I tried applying the "RightToLeft" extended style to the tab itself rather than the whole GUI....

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$gui = GUICreate ("Mirrored Test", 400, 300)

$tab = GUICtrlCreateTab(10, 10, 200, 100, -1, $WS_EX_LAYOUTRTL)

    $tab0 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("tab0")
    GUICtrlCreateLabel("label0", 30, 80, 50, 20)
    $tab0OK = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK0", 20, 50, 50, 20)
    $tab0input = GUICtrlCreateInput("default", 80, 50, 70, 20)

    $tab1 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("tab----1")
    GUICtrlCreateLabel("label1", 30, 80, 50, 20)
    $tab1combo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 20, 50, 60, 120)
    GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Trids|CyberSlug|Larry|Jon|Tylo", "Jon") ; default Jon
    $tab1OK = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK1", 80, 50, 50, 20)

    $tab2 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("tab2")
    GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_SHOW)  ; will be display first
    GUICtrlCreateLabel("label2", 30, 80, 50, 20)
    $tab2OK = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK2", 140, 50, 50)

    GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")    ; end tabitem definition

    GUICtrlCreateLabel("label3", 20, 130, 50, 20)

GUISetState ()

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg ()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

I told you we helped most of the time! ;)

That's sweet!!! Thanks. I've started with a workaround that involved a blank label over the left tab and a script that would unselect the tab if the user happened to have found it. Now this works great.
