GUICtrlCreateTabItem & $TCS_MULTILINE

5 posts in this topic

On a project im working on Which i had some help from Melba and UEZ they used

GUICtrlCreateTab for the initial tab and

GUICtrlCreateTabItem for the subsequent ones

Now before these changes i had $TCS_MULTILINE working nicely as i used GUICtrlCreateTab for every tab i had.

Is there a way to force $TCS_MULTILINE to work with GUICtrlCreateTabItem ?

I tried updating the tab but that didnt seem to work using

$hTab3 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("[4]")
GUICtrlSetStyle(-1, $TCS_MULTILINE)

Any thoughts?

Chimaera,

The $TCS_MULTILINE style applied to tabs shows all the tab items at once using multiple rows if necessary. A single tab item does not have subordinate tab items and so applying this style makes no sense. :)

I am afraid I have forgotten what your project dealt with and how tabs were involved. Does it have subordinate tabs on tabitems using child GUIs to hold them? If do then all you need to do is add the $TCS_MULTILINE style to each of the subordinate tabs. ;)

Perhaps posting some of your basic GUI and tab code would help. ;)

First tab i have this

$hTab = GUICtrlCreateTab(10, 10, 683, 583, $TCS_MULTILINE, $TCS_RIGHTJUSTIFY) 
$tab_font = GUICtrlSetFont( $hTab , $fsize, 600, "", $font) 
$area_font = GUISetFont( $fsize, 600, "", $font)

Then every subsequent one up to 8 tabs is this

$hTab1 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("[1]")
GUICtrlSetStyle(-1, $TCS_MULTILINE)     
$area_font = GUISetFont( $fsize, 600, "", $font)

But it ignores the Multiline set with the create tab or the setstyle

Chimaera,

I will try and explain again. ;)

The $TCS_MULTILINE style applied to tab controls shows all the tabitem controls at once on multiple rows (if necessary). Omitting the style gives you a single line of tabitem controls with a "left/right" control to move them into view. Here is a short example - first you see the "classic" tab and then the "multiline" tab:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <TabConstants.au3>

_Ex_1()

_Ex_2()

Func _Ex_1()

    $hGUI = GUICreate("Classic with 'left/right'", 500, 500)

    $hTab1 = GUICtrlCreateTab(10, 10, 200, 200)

    For $i = 0 To 10
        GUICtrlCreateTabItem($i)
    Next
    GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")

    GUISetState()

    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop
        EndSwitch
    WEnd

EndFunc

Func _Ex_2()

    $hGUI = GUICreate("Multiline", 500, 500)

    $hTab1 = GUICtrlCreateTab(10, 10, 200, 200, BitOr($TCS_RIGHTJUSTIFY, $TCS_MULTILINE))

    For $i = 0 To 10
        GUICtrlCreateTabItem($i)
    Next
    GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")

    GUISetState()

    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop
        EndSwitch
    WEnd

EndFunc

Applying the $TCS_MULTILINE style to a tabitem control makes no sense, as it has no subordinate tabitem controls to display. :)

Why did you want to apply the style to the tabitems? Perhaps you are looking to achieve some other effect which requires another style. ;)

I wasnt applying it to the tabitems i just wanted it to multiline, ive solved it now with the help of your examples.

and im feeling a little stupid right now guess what was missing

#include <TabConstants.au3>

Told you it was stupid.... :)

Gaaaah
