Can i create a large number of identical tabs?

 


Full disclosure - I consider tabs a poor UI choice when there are more than four or five leaves.  At that point, you are usually better off using a selector of some sort and subpanels to implement the functionality.  It is much easier to maintain, as well.

 

I think this is where i got hung up.. at the moment because i have only two components i thought tabs would be a good idea.. now that there is the possibilty of many more components it seems to be getting out of control.

 

Thanks for the help, and hope more than just my problem has been solved 😛

I hate to quote myself but I recently replied to another thread where the advice given applies as well here. To quote:

 

"This is a perfect example of why it is always a good idea to think about expansion when developing code. I know it has saved my butt more than once. You start a project and never anticipate it changing or growing. Next thing you know you are doing exactly that and the code quickly devolves and becomes true spaghetti code. A little up front planning greatly decreases the chance of this happening. When developing code you should always keep code reuse and maintenance in the back of your mind."
