Embeding TabControl in TabControlItem

Recommended Posts

lsakizada

Hi,

I am having a problem to embed Tab control withing a tab control item. e.g. I want to make a nested tabs.

I have tried to develop it in Koda(formDesigner) but it hang the SciTE editor.

Does it possible in AutoIt? Any input or code if someone already developed it?

THX!

Hi lsakizada

As far as I know we can have only one TAB ctrl per GUI.

For embedding more TABs in the same window or a TAB in TAB we have to use child GUIs.

To get the idea try the following

TabInTab.au3

; Example of TAB in TAB ctrl
#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Global $main_GUI,$ok_button,$cancel_button

; This window has 2 ok/cancel-buttons
$main_GUI       = GUICreate("TAB in TAB",260,250,-1,-1)
$ok_button      = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK",40,220,70,20)
$cancel_button  = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel",150,220,70,20)

; Create the first child window that is implemented into the main GUI
$child1         = GUICreate("",230,170,15,35,BitOr($WS_CHILD,$WS_TABSTOP),-1,$main_GUI)
$child_tab      = GUICtrlCreateTab(10,10,210,150)
$child11tab     = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("1")
$child12tab     = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("2")
GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")

GUISetState()

; Create the second child window that is implemented into the main GUI
$child2         = GUICreate("",230,170,15,35,BitOr($WS_CHILD,$WS_TABSTOP),-1,$main_GUI)
$listview2      = GUICtrlCreateListView("Col1|Col2",10,10,210,150,-1,$WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("ItemLong1|ItemLong12", $listview2)
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("ItemLong2|Item22", $listview2)

; Switch back the main GUI and create the tabs
GUISwitch($main_GUI)
$main_tab       = GUICtrlCreateTab(10,10,240,200)
$child1tab      = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Child1")
$child2tab      = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Child2")
GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")

GUISetState()

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg(1)
    Switch $msg[0]
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $cancel_button
            ExitLoop
            
        Case $main_tab
            Switch GUICtrlRead($main_tab)
                Case 0
                  GUISetState(@SW_HIDE,$child2)
                  GUISetState(@SW_SHOW,$child1)
            
                Case 1
                 GUISetState(@SW_HIDE,$child1)
                  GUISetState(@SW_SHOW,$child2)
            EndSwitch
    EndSwitch
WEnd

and

MultiTAB.au3

; Example of multiple tabs in the same GUI
#include <GUIConstants.au3>

DIM $main_GUI,$ok_button,$cancel_button

; The main GUI window has the 2 ok/cancel-buttons and two child GUIs
$main_GUI        = GUICreate("Multiple TABs",520,250,-1,-1,BitOr($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI,$WS_CLIPSIBLINGS))
$ok_button      = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK",40,220,70,20)
$cancel_button  = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel",150,220,70,20)

GUISetState()

; Creates the first child GUI window as a child of main GUI
$child1         = GUICreate("",230,170,15,35,BitOr($WS_CHILD,$WS_TABSTOP),-1,$main_GUI)
$child_tab       = GUICtrlCreateTab(10,10,210,150)
$child11tab     = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("1")
$child12tab     = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("2")
GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")


GUISetState()

; Creates the second gui window as a child of main GUI
$child2         = GUICreate("",230,170,250,35,BitOr($WS_CHILD,$WS_TABSTOP),-1,$main_GUI)

; Create second TAB control and its the tabs
$main_tab        = GUICtrlCreateTab(10,10,220,150)
$child1tab      = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Child1")
$child2tab      = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Child2")
GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")
GUICtrlSetState($child1tab,$GUI_SHOW)
GUISetState()

GUISwitch($main_GUI)

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg(1)
    Switch $msg[0]
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $cancel_button
            ExitLoop
            
        Case $main_tab
            Switch GUICtrlRead($main_tab)
                Case 0
            
                Case 1
                
            EndSwitch
    EndSwitch
WEnd
