Lighting Talk #2: The Missing Tab Pattern – Roger Griffith, Eaglesun

In Obase, we had an abstract entity that would allow you to maintain a single entity, using a tab dialog (3 tabs) function. It was god-awful clunky from a developer’s perspective but did provide a reasonable solution to spread a single entity out over multiple tabs. If you had an entity with a LOT of fields (too many to fit on a single panel), this was a viable solution. When developing with patterns, there is no equivalent pattern that allows you to maintain a single entity, spread out over multiple tabs…UNTIL NOW. Roger will demonstrate a new pattern that allows you to effortlessly produce a suite of tab-based user interfaces (Add/Change/Display/Delete) with a minimal development effort. Instead of trying to cram a large entity into a single panel, you can now spread it out over multiple tabs (unlimited), and assign meaningful graphics to each tab. The end result is similar (in concept) to the Obase Tab Dialog but leverages the Frame patterns to produce a very modern user interface. This new pattern is a must have for any serious Plex developer!
