Article #484: Flmm_Tabs - Tabs with pulldown menu V0.9

This class is derived from Fl_Tabs. It has the same API and usage. However, if the Tabs fill up, they won't be squezed together, but instead a pulldown menu is added which provides access to all Tabs at once.

Tested with FLTK 1.1.7 on Mac, MSWindows and Linux

Nice :) Multiple rows would be better, but I'll give this one a try :) Thanks!

There is no way I will ever write a multi-rown tab widget. Never. Why? Multirow tabs are counterproductive and ugly. See:

In my personal opinion you're right about multi-row tabs. However I've been speaking for my application's end-users most of the time so far :)
