View Full Version : Tabitem title size

Does anyone know how to configure the title of a tab (the part U click to view the tab contents) to be as wide as the title text or as wide as U want ??

I have attached an image to make it clearer. The picture shows a tab with two items, U can see that the second tabitem clips the title such that U can't read it completely. A little investigation reveals that setTabWidth and setMinTabWidth of the TabPanel class does nothing to solve our problem. Looking further, I discovered that the tabitem header is created with an inner class called HeaderItem which extends Component, though it provides a setWith method (via the Component API) but it is a dummy method and it was not implemented.

Once I took that out of the way, the tabs were automatically as wide as their label size. Cheers.
