Bug Description

When an application is run on a desktop (and maybe on a tablet), tabs should look more like traditional tabs, with all visible, and the current one selected, and borders around the tabs.

What is the "traditional" tab on the desktop. Right now desktop apps use the tab control from the framework they are built on or they implement their own tab design and functionality. As far as I know there is no approved and documented design of the tabs on desktop form factor.

Tim Peeters (tpeeters) wrote :

Note that the new tabs that we are implementing in the UITK will work much better on desktop than the current tabs in UITK. It will also have an option to show tab buttons directly in the header, similar to desktop tabs so probably this bug report is not valid anymore. At least we would need some feedback from design on desktop apps.

Till we don't get any UI for the purpose, apps can use QtQuick Controls' Tabs for the purpose.
