iam building a plugin with customgui quicktab,
the sdk says it got settings like QUICKTAB_NOMULTISELECT

Does anyone know how to perform something like 

quicktab sdk-documentation:

If i try to access myQuickTab[c4d.QUICKTAB_NOMULTISELECT] i get the message "TypeError 'c4d.gui.QuickTabCustomGUI' is unsubscriptable"

thank you,

found solution:

I could init the customGUI in this way:
bc = c4d.BaseContainer()
 self.tabs = self.AddCustomGui(self.tabsID, c4d.CUSTOMGUI_QUICKTAB, "123", c4d.BFH_SCALEFIT|c4d.BFV_MASK, 60, 12, bc)

Could you possibly post more code for this?
I'm having trouble creating the tabs.

The node based plugins all use the .res file to load the tabs. And I can't find any documentation on creating them in a GeDialog like this.
I can create the gizmo fine. But that just creates the header bar. And I can't figure out how to add the actual tabs under that header bar.
All my attempts to use the functions in the gizmo cause a crash!

      bc = c4d.BaseContainer()  
      bc[c4d.QUICKTAB_BAR] = True          
      bc[c4d.QUICKTAB_BARTITLE] = "My QuickTab"  
      bc[c4d.QUICKTAB_SEPARATOR] = True          
      bc[c4d.QUICKTAB_BGCOLOR] = c4d.Vector(0.4, 0.2, 0)   
      bc[c4d.QUICKTAB_SPRINGINGFOLDERS] = True    
      bc[c4d.QUICKTAB_NOMULTISELECT] = False  
      self.tabs = self.AddCustomGui(1111, c4d.CUSTOMGUI_QUICKTAB, "123", c4d.BFH_SCALEFIT|c4d.BFV_MASK, 60, 12, bc)  
      self.tabs.SetTextColor(What goes here???, c4d.COLOR_MATERIALMANAGER_TEXT_SELECTED)

Hello Scott,
sorry is was a bit busy.

Well i didnt implement this any further, but found another way to get my idea done.
I just checked in gui Command() wich tab is selected an used gui.HideElement(ElementID, Boolean) to hide all others and show the right one.

btw. my PlugIn ist a ToolData-Plugin.

Does this help somehow?

That's OK.
I was interested in learning how to add a quicktab to a GeDialog plugin.
The docs only show how to create the header part of it. And not the actual tabs under it.

If anyone out there has an example of this kind of thing. I'd love to see how it's done.

Thats excactly what i struggled with ^^
I finally gave in and used the state to toggle groups ...
not nice, but it works fine 🙂

I managed to figure out how the quicktabs gui works. And how to use it in a GeDialog.

What I did to figure it out was to use C++ and Visual Studio's intellisense option to test all the possible options until I accidentally hit upon the winning combination to make everything work.
This is something I tend to do a lot when the docs fail to provide the proper information.
Thank God for intellisense.

If you like Bertram. I can post a Python example as soon as I get a chance.
I just need to finish my C++ example first.
