About Tab Folders for OpenROAD 3.5 (and 4.0)
Tab folders are the fancy Windows 95/NT GUI components that allow information
to be split into separate sections or pages. Selecting a tab brings the
associated folder to the front. Any set of fields may then be placed on a
particular page, as shown in the simple illustration below.
Files containing this GUI component may be downloaded, and you can use
them to incorporate tab folders into your applications. Tab folders have been
developed by Mark Rodgers
at Apertus Systems Limited.
How to use tab folders
Different versions of the tab folder component have been developed for OpenROAD
3.5 and OpenROAD 4.0. Both versions use the same method: first create
a separate stackfield grouping each set of fields you wish to display on a tab,
then group these stackfields into a further stackfield. A tabfolder field
is then created using a field template, and then associated with the stackfield.
Full instructions and a worked example are contained in the User Guide for OpenROAD 3.5 or
User Guide for OpenROAD 4.0.
