The SuperTabs plug-in extends the component palette to give you multi-line tabs, quick page finders, and a view source menu item.
Note: If you are using another multi-line component palette plug-in or expert, you should disable that multi-line functionality before installing this plug-in. If you are using Wopper, be sure to turn off the Palette Menu and Multi-line Tabs options (CodeRush|Wopper Defaults|IDE tab).
Extends the component palette to support multiple rows of tabs.
Quick Page Finder to instantly locate a desired component palette tab.
View Source feature to load the PAS file for the currently selected component in the component palette.
Extends the editor tabs to support multiple tab rows.
Quick File Finder to instantly locate a desired open file in the editor.
Figure 1: The figure above demonstrates the SuperTabs plug-in at work in the component palette. Notice how it gives you multi-line tabs, quick page finders, and a view source menu item.
Figure 2: The figure above demonstrates the SuperTabs plug-in at work in the editor window. Notice how it gives you multi-line tabs and a file picker menu item.
This plug-in makes it easier to get to your component palette pages and files when there are too many (palette pages or files) to view at one time. The right-click popup menu is modified, adding page-selector menu items (see screen shots above). You can switch to a file or a component palette page just by selecting one of these menu items from the popup.
You can also enable multi-line tabs individually for both the Delphi component palette and the edit window. These settings are persistent.
The component palette menu has a "View Source..." menu item that allows you to open the source code and jump to the declaration of the component selected on the component palette (as long as the source file is on the Delphi search or browse path).
To view the source code for a component on the palette, follow these steps:
Select the component on the palette (click it down, as if you were going to drop it on a form).
Right-click the palette and choose "View Source for TXxxxXxxx..." (where TXxxxXxxx is the name of the component selected). CodeRush will open the source file for you, and jump to the declaration of the component you selected.
