    Does anyone know how to detect which tab is currently visible in my tool's attribute manager? I have the four tabs (defined in myplugin.res) and I need to know which one the user is currently viewing.

    The plugin is based on DescriptionToolData.

    I guess this is not possible as the user may open multiple attribute managers

    Good thought. Thanks. Will change design accordingly.

    as Mohamed said, there could be multiple Attribute Managers. Each manager may display the object in question differently; the current state of tabs and groups is just stored internally in the manager and not accessible to the object. See also this thread:
