The simplest way:

1. Drag your widgets for tab 1 onto the window and arrange them as desired,
then group them. Name the group the same as the name of tab 1 (for example,
if your tabs are "Foo", "Bar", and "Bas", name the first group "Foo").

Repeat for each tab: that is, create a group for each tab that contains the
objects you want for the tab.

2. Put this handler into the tab button's script:

  on menuPick chosenTab,previousTab
    lock screen
    show group chosenTab
    hide group previousTab
  end menuPick
