Bonjour André,

You have got right replies yet from John.
But you have to know that a tabbed button is like a menu button.
So you may use: "set the menuHistory of btn <button identifier> to  

About tabbed buttons, The "How to manage tabbed buttons" tutorial  
might help you:
How to manage tabbed buttons with 2 methods: Multiple cards method  
(each tab is a card) and Groups method (show/hide groups based on tab  
And, by script, how to set the tabs names, how to select a tab, how  
to disable or enable a tab, etc.

As you know it :-)  you will access this tutorial through "Tutorials  
Picker" a free plugin that interfaces with the So Smart Software  
website in order to display all available tutorials stacks directly  
from the web.
You will find it by going to
Revolution/Plugins or Tutorials section.

Best Regards from Paris,
