I believe that the tabbed pane as a whole is recognised in the object mapping mode. Like many other components, we deal with tabbed panes as a whole component, and address each individual tab within it using its index or title. I suspect that the green border is being drawn around the whole tabbed pane.
This is actually not something that Jubula is yet capable of, as Tabbed Property Sheet Pages are not implemented using standard tab widgets (TabFolder or CTabFolder). At least, that was the way it was as of a year ago or so.
If there's no bug entry for this yet, I'd recommend putting in an enhancement request. Additionally, if you're willing to submit a patch to implement this, I'm sure one of us would find the time to review it.
with reference to the tabbed pane you're totaly right, of course, but I want to map a Tabbed Property Sheet Page inside a tabbed pane. Please have a look at the attached pic. I've no problem to control the red marked tabs by index or value, but I get no access to the blue marked tabs.
As a workaround I select the tabs with the clickInComponent function to the corresponding XY coordinate. Selecting these tabs by index or value would be much more comfortable for me.
