View Full Version : TabPanel toolbar button

5 Dec 2010, 7:54 AM
Is it possible to access the toolbar for a tabpanel and add a custom styled button to the far right (thats not a tab)? What I want is 2 tabs and a little "Add" button right justified.

The only thing I can think of is to not use the tabpanel and make a regular panel with a toolbar and a segmentedbutton group and writing all the logic for a tabpanel manually (swapping in different contents, the animation, and style the buttons to look like a tabpanel instead of a segmentedbutton default look).

A second toolbar within each tab of the tabpanel would take up too much vertical space so thats not going to work.

Thanks for the help!

To get the tabbar use


That is simply an hbox layout Panel.

Add a Button to it (after a flex:1 component to push it to the right)

Remember that to render newly added child Components you call doLayout on the Container.
