Does anyone who can share an example using quicktab or xsal example beautifying the tabs? I'm using the original quicktabs (CTD30) and the tabs looks like an old program similar to win 95. I would like to improve the apl and tabs looks in a mordern way, as .net or java new version. Any help will be welcome. I downloaded a lot of examples but nothing found so far. Just a few small changes like put an image or modify the text color.
Just a quick thought off the top of my head ...
Use the quick tab to associate window objects to tabs.
Setup some pushbuttons (better: Option Buttons?) as the "interface" to the quicktabs object. When one option button is selected, make the related quicktab tab active.
At run-time, upon creation of the form window (or dialog), hide the quicktab.
Make whatever Option Button the default selected one, and make the related quicktab tab active.
Something like that.

The webpage refers to a Teatalk article about XPTabs (issue 2004/20040501.pdf). You can find this here:
Aside in case it is of use to anybody:
Since GTD 5.2, I've been using Tab Bars and QuickTabs together, using a Tab Bar as the visual interface to a hidden QuickTab .
I like look of Tab Bars (and I like that tabs can be hidden), but not the mechanism to relate child window objects to specific tabs in a tab bar.
I like the way child window objects are associated to tabs in a quicktab, but I don't particularly like the look of QuickTabs (and I don't like that tabs can't be hidden).
At run-time, hiding a QuickTab, and using a Ribbon Bar as an interface to a QuickTab (i.e. when a Tab Bar tab is activated, then activate the related QuickTab tab) has worked really well (still does with GTD 7.1.2) .
I've tried to apply these XP tabs to my project - after some adjustments they work and look great.
Unfortunalely I have 2 problems one problem:
- I can't see any pictures placed on picTabs (they are visible on TD layout, but invisible at runtime)
- all my buttons placed on picTabs are disabled by default (until I use SalEnableWindow) problem was appearing when class message: Call SalSendClassMessage( SAM_Create, wParam, lParam ) was sent from picTabs. I've made workaround to save enabled / disabled state of buttons before class message is sent and restore it after that message.
Any ideas to fix this?
EDIT: I've fixed second problem by using m!image custom control
