single-line

Arguments: tab-control

Returns the value of the single-line property of the argument. This property determines whether tabs on the tab-control widget will display in a single unbroken line or whether they wrap into several rows to display all at once in the window.

The single-line property may not be changed on an existing control, and must instead be specified with the inspector when designing a control (using a form) or with the :single-line initarg of make-instance. (It can be changed using the inspector when designing a form but not for a running control, either in the IDE or in an application.)

The possible values and their effects are:

single-line is a property of the tab-control class.

GTK Note

The GTK tab-control always uses a single row of tabs, and specifying the single-line property will have no effect. You can scroll a tab-control quickly by holding the mouse button down on the scroll arrow, but only if the widget's focus-on-click property is true, since otherwise Common Graphics will move the keyboard focus to a widget on a tab. If it is tedious to scroll to all of the tabs, you might consider using a multi-picture-button instead, as we did for the IDE's Class Browser.
