Hey all. i have 2 TabFolders on my screen and each have 3 tabs. "One", "Two", "Three". I'm looking for a way that when a user clicks on either TabFolder TabItems the other TabFolder's equivalent TabItem will be selected as well. So if i click on "One", both "One" tab items appear in their separate TabFolders. How can i accomplish this?

Hi Jason,

I would use the TabFolder.getSelection (or getSelectionIndex) to determine
which TabItem is selected and then use the TabFolder.setSelection on the
other TabFolder.
Then add listeners to all the TabItems which triggers the code when a
TabItem is selected.

You can either use the TabItems Text property (getText, setText) to do the
comparison, or if the TabItems have the same indexes simply use the index.

Thanks Joe, helped out a lot. But this: "Then add listeners to all the TabItems which triggers the code when a
TabItem is selected." wasn't right. There is no selection listener for the TabItems so i just added a selection listener to the TabFolder. Thanks again for all your help.

Later,
J
