there is already one short posting about this theme in the feature-request-forum, but since i can not post there yet (will get my acc in the next 2-3 months), i reopen this theme here.
i think, that the ability to drag and drop the tabpanel-items would really be a nice feature. i imagine it almost like the way, you can sort grid columns. when you drag the "button" of a tabpanel, it gets the same animation like a grid column-header and you get green and red zones too.
this would make it possible to sort the order of a tabpanel.
therefore, tabpanel-items should react on the event onmouseup and dragging onmousedown (stopping the other event). this could also help with a small "bug" in ext 1.1. clicking the close-icon on a tab-panel button of a not active tab first focusses that tab and then closes it. if reacting on onmousedown and stopping the focus-event, this would be nicer too.
if tab-panel-sorting works, it could be extended to allow dragging the tabpanel-items between different tabpanels. somehow similar to the linked accordions of jozef. imagine how cool it would be, to have a border / nested layout and drag and drop tabpanel-items between east, west and center.
i am not sure, if something like this is already planed (or implemented?) in ext2.0.
so my first question goes to the core-developer team!
if this feature is not planned officially, it would be a great project for an ext user extension and i would try to help coding this.
but before starting, i need to know if someone has already / wants to develop this too.
@the community: please write here, if you would like this feature or not.
thanks and kind regards, tobiu
