    My question is ...
    Is this class fully implemented in MorphOS MUI? I have problem with getting this class work.
    I have "flat view" instead of "tab view".

    Example code:

    Code:
    VGroup,
    Child, TitleObject,
    Child, TextObject, MUIA_Text_Contents, "page 1", End,
    Child, TextObject, MUIA_Text_Contents, "page 2", End,
    Child, TextObject, MUIA_Text_Contents, "page 3", End,
    End,

    Child, [page 1 contents],
    Child, [page 2 contents],
    Child, [page 3 contents],
    End

    Never heard of MUIC_Title, but it does look like you want a RegisterGroup.

    "On MUI4 there is a new class called MUIC_Title to have dynamic tabs. On AROS OWB port uses a dynamic tab class written from scratch (it will be an external class, and so it will be ported on OS3 and OS4 as well)."

    O.k. so it does exist but "TitleObject" is not defined in mui.h as it seems.

    This would be:
    Code:
    #define TitleObject MUI_NewObject(MUIC_Title


    Just add that somewhere, maybe inside a #ifndef TitleObject ..... #endif and you should be good.

    I don't have problem with compilation. All MUIC_Title defines (attributes/methods) exists in mui.h (MorphOS SDK) except macros for object creation, but that is not problem.
    The question is .. is MUIC_Title working under MorphOS MUI?

    Well it is part of the official SDK so it should work.

    I'm not 100% sure but it seems that it was introduced in the real MUI4 for MorphOS and then reappeared in the somewhat questionable AOS versions. As such I can't say for sure that everything will work 100% the same over all versions.

    I believe you're missing MUIA_Group_PageMode, TRUE, in the top VGroup.

    You are right, that was the problem. Thanks.

    But now I have other question. Is there any way to customize this "class" (colors, borders, etc) by MUI Settings? I don't see any proper option there.

    I don't believe you can customize it other than by modifying MUI's settings for your app. MUI wasn't designed to allow apps to modify their looks - that's up to the user.

    Exactly, that is Why I am asking where in MUI Settings/Preferences are settings for User for this class?
    There are for Groups, Lists, Windows etc ... but I nothing for MUIC_Title.

    There are no separate settings for it. It's the same stuff as Groups / Tab Groups.

    So, why Group Container style is not utylised by MUIC_Title? Here is example.

    You might have to specify the right MUIA_Background/MUIA_Frame attributes for applying a consistant look, exactly like when doing a custom button with a MUIC_Area for example (ie: MUIA_Background, MUII_ButtonBack, MUIA_Frame, MUIV_Frame_Button).

    Sure, I know that. It is not a problem to use those MUI attributes. My question is related to state that MUIC_Title is using the same style settings as MUIC_Register (Groups / Tabs). But as I see those settings are utilised only partly. I would like to know is it some bug in MorphOS MUI, or is it done intentionally?

    Well, define what's a bug in MUI. :)

    The inner working of both classes is quite different.

    In the case of Title, you instanciate a group and then add a Title object in, which in turn, let you the duty of setting the correct frame/background for the group.

    Group, [you have to set the 'correct' frame/background]
    Title, Child, Child, Child, End,
    Child,
    Child,
    Child,
    End,

    In the case of the Register class, it is the class itself that manages the group holding the tabbed childs. It is then sensible to let the class do the decoration job as it holds the 'owernship' of the group.

    Register,
    Child,
    Child,
    Child,
    End

    Dunno if that makes sense. Personnaly, I just add the correct decoration to the group holding the title object and be done with that. (MUIA_Frame, MUIV_Frame_Register, MUIA_Background, MUII_RegisterBack)
