Tab Boxes

Tab Box<<Get Tab Margin()

Returns a list of the current margins in pixels for the tab box in this order: Left, Top, Right, and Bottom.

Tab Box<<Set Style("Tab"|"Combo" |"Outline"|"Vertical Spread"|"Horizontal Spread"|"Minimize Size")

Changes the appearance of the tab box from a tab to a combo box or outline node.

"Vertical Spread" and "Horizontal Spread" change the orientation of the tab title.

"Minimize Size" bases the tab style on the width of the tab title.

See Tab Box and Tab Page Box in the Scripting Guide for an example.

Tab Box<<Set Tab Margin(n|{...})

Sets the tab margin for the tab box. If a single number is specified, all four margins are set to that number of pixels. If a list of two numbers is specified, the left and right margins are set to the first number, and the top and bottom margins are set to the second number. If a list of four numbers is specified, the margins are set in this order: {left, top, right, bottom}.

Tab Box<<Show Tabs(Boolean)

Shows or hides the tabs for tab boxes. If you hide the tabs, you need to provide another way to select and show tabs. For example, a list box that contains a list of references to the tabs. The default value is 1.
