I will give this a try. It’s a shame that widgets always seem to be incomplete in one way or another. Thanks for your help. All the best Terry > On 9 Nov 2020, at 16:52, Bob Sneidar via use-livecode > wrote: > > In my custom tabbed object group, I had to put transparent buttons over the
I believe so. In my custom tabbed object group, I had to put transparent buttons over the tabs, then have a way to size and rearrange the buttons to match the size of the tabs, just so I could get it to respond to mouse messages and drag/drop operations. It's so ugly it's cute. Like a shar-pei.

I can see the advantages of doing it yourself and intend trying both methods as suggested by yourself and Jaqueline. I have noted when trying some of the widgets that they do seem to be rather incomplete. All the best Terry > On 5 Nov 2020, at 22:43, Bob Sneidar via use-livecode > wrote:

The segmented control is fairly limited. Most of the widgets are. The properties you see are the properties you get. I did however, with a bit of clever scripting, develop a tabbed object group that works as well or better that the built in tabbed button. And for a bonus, it looks in Windows

I was fiddling around with this at the weekend trying to work out how it worked, and was surprised by the lack of mouseDown/Up as well. Richmond. On 2/5/2018 8:16 am, Andrew Bell via use-livecode wrote: (apologies, this was initially sent to the wrong email) Is there any way to capture
I had the same experience as Andrew. I would love to see a mousedown and mouseup message sent to this widget. Bill William Prothero http://earthlearningsolutions.org > On May 1, 2018, at 10:16 PM, Andrew Bell via use-livecode >
