|When not using colored tabs, it's quite hard to tell which tab is currently selected. The common trick is to make the active tab a little bigger, so that it appears closer. |
I've made a patch that does this, and it makes the FLTK tabs look much better (well, at least it makes them look more like 'standard' tabs).

+1 without the width adjustment, since the corresponding change would need to be made to the tab_positions() method in order to have the click areas exactly right, and the reduced spacing makes the tabs look cluttered.
Also, the patch has a xofs variable that is initialized but never used...
I'll apply to 1.1.x...
[Comment from Dejan]
It should be optional and changeable.
This is purely matter of taste. I would peronally, for example, like simple
colored overline on active tab (similar to what tabs look like in XP) ...
Than is pretty obvious which tab is active.
If others agree on aplying this patch I am volunteering to put change in
FLTK 2.0 as well.
