View Full Version : tab container?


08-10-2004, 10:31 AM
In the OnLine Help, a "Tab Container" is mentioned as an option on the Web Components Builder. Is that still in the works?

Also, I can't figure out how to get the WebForms Builder or Style Editor to pop up. How do I access those functions?

the Style editor: open a Web Component.
Go to Grid Properties
On top of the page you see the style. Press the button next to it.
Is this what you are looking for?

No, I was hoping to be able to use something like this when designing plain HTML pages to set the background, type etc on a page without a web component.

the Web Forms Builder.

I think you mean this:
Open the Web Projects Control Panel.
Press New
Select Alpha five Web Page or HTML Page
In upperpart of the screen you'll find form builder buttons.

Selwyn told me that the Tab container feature is still to come.
The Help files are a little bit ahead :-)

Actually, I'm looking for a way to match my web pages to the style which I select for web components. In order words, a page with static HTML without any components should look the same as a page with a component. If I knew how to program using HTML, it probably wouldn't be a big deal, but I don't.

Unfortunately, you will probably have to learn some html. The component builders and the html editor do a great job and shorten development time considerably, but you still need to work with some of the source code. You should also learn about using css style sheets. You can use the Alpha css files on other pages and attach the various styles to nearly any object. This can produce a page that looks similar to the components.

There are many books on html and xhtml, as well as a huge amount of information on the internet. Here is a link that is a good place to start (thanks Lenny)

The latest help files are now documenting fewer unreleased features.
