TabGroup individual size

All groups in a tabGroup are sized to the max size of each tab.
For exemple if tab A got 3 elements and the tab B got 1 elements, you will have extra space in the tab B for matching the size of tab A. Is there a way to remove this extra size?

Thanks in advance !

Do you some code showing this?

The size of tab pages groups is adapted to the size of its main TabGroup and not to their content.
The TabGroup doesn't resize when the active tab page changes.

Yep that is the problem, is there a workaround to fix it?

Here a code sample as you said there are extra space in the second tab I didn't want. Since in my script (not this one) I deal with 1 tab that can have 400/800 height px and another tab with only 10/20 px is really not visual pleasante to have a lot of extra space dat you can't avoid.

import c4d
class MyDialog(c4d.gui.GeDialog) :
    dialog = None
    def CreateLayout(self) :
        if self.TabGroupBegin(id=1001, flags=c4d.BFH_LEFT, tabtype=c4d.TAB_TABS) :
            if self.GroupBegin(id=1011, flags=c4d.BFH_FIT, cols=2, title="1st tab") :
                self.element = self.AddStaticText(id=1005, flags=c4d.BFH_LEFT, initw=275, name="a", borderstyle=c4d.BORDER_NONE)
                self.element = self.AddStaticText(id=1006, flags=c4d.BFH_LEFT, initw=275, name="b", borderstyle=c4d.BORDER_NONE)
                self.element = self.AddStaticText(id=1007, flags=c4d.BFH_LEFT, initw=275, name="c", borderstyle=c4d.BORDER_NONE)
                self.element = self.AddStaticText(id=1008, flags=c4d.BFH_LEFT, initw=275, name="d", borderstyle=c4d.BORDER_NONE)
                self.element = self.AddStaticText(id=1009, flags=c4d.BFH_LEFT, initw=275, name="e", borderstyle=c4d.BORDER_NONE)
            if self.GroupBegin(id=1021, flags=c4d.BFH_SCALE, cols=2, rows=4, title="2nd tab") :
                self.element = self.AddStaticText(id=1010, flags=c4d.BFH_LEFT, initw=275, name="a", borderstyle=c4d.BORDER_NONE)
                self.element = self.AddStaticText(id=1011, flags=c4d.BFH_LEFT, initw=275, name="b", borderstyle=c4d.BORDER_NONE)
        return True    
def main() :
    a = MyDialog()
if __name__=='__main__':

There's no workaround for this. This is how the TabGroup gadget work and this kind of control doesn't usually resize its pages.
You should maybe rethink your UI.
