tabs

Arguments: standard-object

Returns or sets with setf the value of the tabs property of the argument. The value of this property is a list of distances from the left edge of the control. The distances are measured in pixels for outline and list controls, and in character widths for text-editing controls. These are spacing guides for text whenever tab characters appear in a displayed string. For list controls, these values specify the location of columns when the list control displays multiple columns.

tabs is a property of the outline, dropping-outline, multi-item-list, single-item-list, multi-line-editable-text, text-edit-pane, rich-edit, and rich-edit-pane classes.

If the rich-edit has its tabstop property turned off (the default), then pressing the tab key will insert a tab character into the control's text. If the tabstop property is turned on, then pressing the tab key will move the focus to the next widget, and control-semicolon must be pressed in order to insert a tab character interactively. A comtab or virtual-key-down method could be supplied to make some other keychord insert a tab-character by doing something like

(write-char #\tab rich-edit-pane)

See cg-rich-text.htm for information about rich text editing in Common Graphics.
