I have a set of 5 tabs. They are all part of a single element.
So when I add a 2nd action, by editing the action in Tab 2, it also changes the action for Tab 1 and all the rest. Which means all the tabs have the same action.
BTW: I just started with ForeUI today and I’m thrilled! Absolutely wowed by the whole thing!
But I must, must, must have this capability. (Cheque’s in the mail if we can work through this!)
Hi Bentrem, welcome to try ForeUI 🙂
You can handle the “Selection Changed” event for the tabs, then you can do different things according to the current selected tab.
The common case for tabs is to show/hide different content when clicking different tab, you can take a look at the “interactive_selection.4ui” example, which is included in the installation. The example used conditional branching to handle this, you can use the switch branching instead, which is more suitable.
Woa … I just realized what I was doing … GUI “case” is nothing like command line “case”!
Totally n00b brain-fart here huh huh … I just implemented some Conditional Branching, and so I’m off to the races!
Nice to see that you’ve replied. I’ve been at it 9 hours … on a Sunday … how does one spell “dedication”? I spell it this way c.o.m.p.u.l.s.i.v.e *grin*
Thanks X, will do. Things went soooo intuitively I only peeked chatting.html and that seduced me completely.
p.s. money order to you Monday afternoon … $89 for pre-order of v2.0? *G*
Happy that I can help 🙂
We have not provided the approach to pre-order V2.0 yet, but we’ve finalized the upgrade policy: V1.x can be upgraded to V2.0 with just $10. So you can just order V1.x now and then upgrade to V2.x later.
Tabs are regarded as one GUI element, so it will only have one behavior definition, all tabs are sharing the same behavior definition. So if you want to do different thing when different tab is clicked, you can handle the “Selection Changed” event, using the switch branching for different tabs, like this:
Not sure if I’ve got your point…
Let’s say you have a Tabs element with 3 tabs inside (tab1, tab2, tab3) , and then you set the action that each tab will show up a view (view1, view2, view3). You change the default selected tab to tab2 instead of tab1, so you expect to see view2 being displayed in the simulation, but what you see in fact is still the view1, seems the default selected tab is not really selected. Is it the issue you mentioned?
This is far more complicated than anything I addressed.
Viz.: I have a Tab element selected. So I have a panel of properties open, showing a variety of parameters. Right? In the IDE? Yes?
In the Tab section of those properties, there are 2 arrows … one left, one right.
As I use those arrows, I navigate through the tab set.
I had assumed (in hour 3 of my first session) that when I clicked “Action” I would be setting the action for that specific Tab, not for the whole element.
So I would do that … hit the arrow … and set the action for that Tab.
When I saw 1 action for the entire set, I was confounded.
Which I have already worked through.
You see I’ve said 3 or more times that I’ve got it working … not sure you heard that … this is what I call “sync loss”. Without sync every single plausible meaning has to be explicated at length. In sync, things are much simpler.
All is good here … again.
And yes, I’ll say it again if need be.
Right … I wouldn’t try to follow you through that scenario just now, I’m pretty much boggled. A 10hr session, but very well rewarded! (I’d love to post the DHTML but it’s proprietary.)
Looking forward to this Xavier … I’m a patient man, but I’ve been waiting for this a long, long time. (2000 I was programming VB5; 1998 VRML; 1993 Pascal for Window; 1989 QB4.5 w/Fortan; 1983 assemler for the Z80; 1978 APL; 1972 binary. It’s been a long haul!)
p.s. ForeUI + http://InfiView.com = pure gold! *grin*
+8?! *blink* AU? TW?
But heh you must know: 30 minutes is not a long time to wait! (Of course I don’t mean in a real-time context … drives me crazy how young folk talk “multi-tasking” when actually they’re just scattered and distracted. *grin*)
I’m -7 so when I’m ending my day I often catch EU folk as they’re starting their day.
