Enhance the GUI tools with a sideways tree-style tab control

A useful CVI GUI tool would be the addition of sideways tree-style tab control.  I am surprised to see no mention of it in the forums.  Is there already some solution for it, or perhaps some Active-X that can do it?    Nevertheless, it would greatly modernize the GUI arsenal.

It has been suggested that the tab control will support tabs on the left or the right of the panel.   However, when configured the tab label text is orientented vertical rather than horizontal.  A workaround solution to presenting a tree-style tab control is to provide a text orientation attribute for the tab control.
