Can Tab Set Selected Item Be Changed Dynamically ?

Hello,

I have a tab set consisting of 5 tabs. I would like to use another selector such as the fish eye or a button or select menu or anything really to automatically change the selected tab. Is there a away to link the selected item of the tab set to a excel field? I don't see this in the object browser. Not sure if there is another way or a different component that may do this for me.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Hi Mike,

    As far as I can see the selected item is set as a properties but not binded to a cell.

    You might consider a label based menu, the selected tab can be controlled. It can be placed over panels which can be dynamic displayed.

    Regards

    Alan

    Based on personal experience and what I have read on this board, I would strongly suggest that you avoid using the Tab Set if at all possible, unless you are comfortable with possible lost time once you begin performance testing. The component appears to be a significant resource drain, and there might be other issues (such as what you've run into with the inability to interact with an Excel cell, which I had not heard about until now). The benefits do not really outweigh the costs in my opinion, but it was definitely a nice concept.

    Personally, although I lost a lot of time when I finally yanked the component and redesigned my project, I haven't looked back since.

    Label Based Menus (as Alan suggests) and Dynamic Visibility are a great way to go, and give you a greater degree of freedom to possibly mix and match other selector components as well.
