Tabbar on bottom?

Post by amifrog »

Is there a way to make a (future) tab bar appear on the bottom of the page, or even left or right (90 degrees rotated) by choice of tags, rather than reimplementing own new classes to achive this?
Or, is there a render method of bespoken class to make it appear at 90 degrees rotation for instance?

You mean in the clicktab.gadget? Well, placing the tabs below the page group (rather than above it) should be quite trivial to implement. But don't hold your breath, the work on the ReAction class set is progressing at a snail's pace. And even when there is actual progress, no updates get released to the public :cry:

Can you provide an example when this would be actually wanted? To me it seems more logical/convenient to always have the tabs above the page group.

I tried inputting "tabs on bottom" in google but it seems most of the results are regarding FireFox and AFAICT no one wants the tabs to be at the literal bottom of the window (instead they want them to be just under the URL string and bookmarks bar as they used to be).

SoundForge (at least the version I have, Audio Studio 10) uses the tab bar placed at the bottom. It is used to flip between the File Explorer and the File Properties page group.

Although I agree that the top placement of the tab bar is more natural, there are GUI setups where placing the tabs below the page group makes good sense. And - providing the programmer with choice is always good.
