use Tk::TabFrame; $TabbedFrame = $widget->TabFrame ( -font => '-adobe-times-medium-r-normal--20-*-*-*-*-*-*-*', -tabcurve => 2, -padx => 5, -pady => 5, [normal frame options...], ); font - font for tabs tabcurve - curve to use for top corners of tabs padx - padding on either side of children pady - padding above and below children $CurrentSelection = $l_Window->cget ('-current'); $CurrentSelection = $l_Window->cget ('-raised'); current - (Readonly) currently selected widget raised - (Readonly) currently selected widget $child = $TabbedFrame->Frame # can also be Button, Label, etc ( -caption => 'Tab label', -tabcolor => 'yellow', [widget options...], ); caption - label text for the widget's tab tabcolor - background for the tab button
Values shown above are defaults.
A tabbed frame geometry manager (like NoteBook). I haven't used NoteBook so I can't really say what behaviour differences or similarities there are. This widget uses direct subwidget creation (no Add methods) and has colors for the tabs.
