Tabbed button pattern

Whenever I use tabbed buttons, I make them the same size as the window. 
Use Geometry Manager or a resizeStack handler to make sure the tabbed 
button is always the same size as the window even after resizing and it 
looks great.

If you really need a border around something, you could try making it 
into a group and setting the group to show border.
