Show to developer component, it can be used as OK control for tabs, blue tabs above editor area, when "MDI" is unchecked.

The info I found there was minuscule. Also, the wiki for it is rather a developer's guide how to make it work but not a word there what is this thing good for or how it could be used to reach whatever its goal is. Could you provide some examples why I would want to color the top of the tabs and what would it be based on (eg. modifed tabs red, saved tabs green)? I couldn't figure that out from a single screenshot.

This is for Delphi IDE. App programmer can make new tab control with it, drop out standard tab-control (which is very poor - no colors at top of tabs, no X buttons on tabs... no coloring of tabs etc), use this

Alex lets wind down this thread. no one seems to be interested or see any advantages in that implementation. Thank you.

I do agree the tabs should be "x" able without being the present tab but otherwise the rest MEH.

On the contrary. I could find this pretty useful. I imagine tabs that do not modify database (having only SELECTs, for example) colored green, those modifying data (UPDATEs, INSERTs, DELETEs) being yellow and those containing DDL being red. But I'm not sure if this could be of any use to you. I doubt SA is written in Delphi. Or is it?

FYI, X aren't shown by design. When you have many tabs open, navigation becomes an issue, and so the screen real estate.

IMHO, I don't see any value in what Alex is promoting, but again, that's my opinion.

For modify, not modify, etc... Please consider a tab loaded with a bunch of text, including things like EXEC myproc. Do we know if that is a read only or update?

We do have a queued enhancement to use different colors for different servers (e.g. Production vs. Development, etc...) but that would be done in the status bar.

Well, it most probably does. But there can be exceptions, of course. Like in this case, having a single EXEC. When it is certain, you could use the coloring I described. Or sort of. When it's indefinite... well, you could define another color for that to indicate that it's unknown.

Er... queued? I'm already using that...

True.

Mindflux, tabs can be closed without becoming the active one using their context menu > Close Page.

I do see some potential in it. It could denote how safe (or dangerous) it would be to execute the contents of the tab. Though he surely should not had tried to promote that in the support forum. That's something I would have done privately, sending an email to the support. This way... it's a bit offensive.

Reversed quotes? Now that one is a conspicuous typo, indeed :P
