This has been asked a few times without any answers so I assume I might be out of luck but I thought I would float it up the stack again just in case.
When switching tabs programmatically using setActiveTab() the tabs change as expected however I would really like to use a transition with the change however I've tried all combinations of setActiveTab I could think of and tried with tabGroup.open using a transition (like in KitchenSink) and haven't had any luck getting a transition to work on an already open tab group where I just need to change the active tab.
Unfortunately it is not possible to animate transitions between tabs in a standard tab group. You could implement your own custom tabs as sub views, but again, nothing like that is available in the tab navigator widget (even at the native level).
Would it be possible to time a transform on the window to say warp it and then flip tabs mid transform simulating the look of a smooth transition? I tried some of the KitchSink code that performs 2D and 3D work but couldn't get it to animate an in place window for a tab group, should this be possible?
is there a special reason why this don't work in standard tabgroup ?
