I’d like the ability to set the index of a Tabs element on “Page Loaded” and maybe on other events as well.
I’m creating a prototype that contains 6 tabs that gives the user access to 6 different pages. (I cannot create it all in one page and therefore I and have to use different pages.)
The window can be closed with a “Close” button (which leads to page 1), and it can be reopened by a toolbar button (going to page 2).
My problem is that, if the user:
1. opens the window (page 2)
2. clicks on tab 2 (which leads to page 3)
3. closes the window (which leads to page 1)
4. reopens the window (on page 2)
the active tab on page 2 is now the tab belonging to page 3…
Did I make my self understandable? The active tab no longer macth the active panel.
A solution to my problem would be:
a. the ability to set the index of the Tabs element on “Page Loaded” or
b. the ability to make the Tabs “freeze”: Let the Tabs work as links but without having the Tabs switch in the user interface.
Possible Work Around
I think I can make a work around inserting 6 rectangles covering each tab and make them work as the links and ignoring the Tabs element.
