Tab position in TabbedPane



I would like to know if it is possible to :

- Show a Tab ONLY on the ActionBar and NOT in the overflow menu


- Display the Tabs that are on the ActionBar at the end of the overflow menu ?


I'm almost sure it is impossible since the documentation on TabbedPane and Tab doesn't seem to offer such a possibility but I wanted to be sure by asking you Smiley Happy


Thank You!

Re: Tab position in TabbedPane

i tried and failed miserably Smiley Sad it is simply not possibly.


if you ask the tabbedpane, to use the ActionBar, then you can haev a max of 3 tabs appearing on action bar and anymore will go into overflow (left)


if you do not ask tabbedpane to use actionbar, then all the tabs will be in overflow.


either way, cascades position the tabs or the actionitems for you....you have no control over it Smiley Sad
