Description

TNotebook is a control which can hold a series of pages order by their position in the list of pages. Only one page is shown at a time.

This control is entirely custom drawn, which means that it is available - and looks the same - in any widgetset which supports TCustomControl. The pages are containers which can hold other controls. The page control does not display a tab which indicates the active page. If you are looking for a control with tabs representing each of the pages, please see TPageControl instead.

To use a Notebook, select its icon from the 'Additional' tab of the Component Palette and place it on the Form. Adjust its size, position, alignment and anchoring as required, by moving the object on the Form or by using the Object Inspector.

Pages are added to the NoteBook by selecting the control and right-clicking with the mouse to get a pop-up menu whose first item is 'Add Page', or by using the Pages property editor in the Object Inspector. Pages already in the NoteBook can be edited by selecting the appropriate ActivePage in the Object Inspector and modifying its properties or adding additional components to the Page.
