I'm experimenting with some UI workarounds and I'm trying to place a tab group within a window or a view that is a cropped a little.
What I'm hoping to do is put two views side by side, with a tab group inside one view and a custom tab navigator in the other.
I'm pretty sure you can't to that with a native tabgroup.
But you could code something identical using some views/windows which does what you want.
I've been thinking about making a custom tabGroup-like set of things, so that I can make apps for iPhone and Android which look identical and do things like rotate the icons in the tabs when orientation is changed to landscape rather than stretch across the bottom.
To my knowledge you can't have a tab group inside a window - you would do a custom tab control that would hide/show views. Also, you can get the drilldown action on windows for free if you use the navigation group control.
Kevin , you are right, The tabGroup needs to be the root controller, you cannot use it as a subview.
