Gui - Tabs and Menus

Recommended Posts

I've got a program that has 2 Tabs and 2 menu items (each menu with 2 items). Not sure why it's doing this but if you goto Tab1 you can access all the menu items but if you goto Tab2 you can't click on the menu items. It's almost like each Tab is it's own GUI.

Any thoughts?

That's exactly it! I put the Menu stuff after the the first Tab section but before the 2nd tab section. I added the 2nd tab later.

Ok, so stupid question about Tabs then. In my script I've got everything to go in the first tab under the 1st instance of GUICtrlCreateTab and everything to go under the second tab after the 2nd instance of GUICtrlCreateTab. Is that how it's supposed to work?

Give me a little explaination about how the tabs work.

Thanks much!

Partial code as it's pretty big! You've got everything up to the functions. BTW, I'm pretty new to programming and I know the code is probably sloppy but I'm learning and hopefully my skills will improve. :D

:D big code! Lol...well...Yes...It Works That Way...Thats Why In The Helpfile It Encourages You To Do Things A Specific Way So That It Will Turn Out Correctly, Hope That Helped You!

To Make Your:

Case Messages Easyier...Try Using This:

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
;;;;Cases Here!!;;;;;

you dont have to use $msg = for every case...

--Swift :P

You also could have fixed the menu problem by closing the first tab item before creaing the menu.

$Tab = GUICtrlCreateTab(Width, Height)

$Tab0 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem"Tab 0")

<Tab controls go here>


Menu here

$Tab1 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Tab 1")

<Controls for this tab>
