Tab controls


When the ShowText property is enabled, the text specified for each tab, if any, is displayed. When this property is not enabled, no text appears.

You can use ShowText with ShowPicture to display a picture and a text label, picture only, text label only, or no label at all.


In a painter

To show the text on the tab pages in the tab control:

  • Select the Show Text check box on the General page of the tab control's Properties view.

In scripts

The ShowText property takes a boolean value. The following line allows the text, if any, to appear for each tab:

tab_1.ShowText = TRUE
