Yes, that's what Shao Sean answered to me ; So I got the two solutions.

I am using regularly your tutorials (Tutorial Picker is in due place  
in my environment) ; they are in the same time very concise and  
accurate.  But yesterday, I don't know why, I did'not think about  
checking there.

This morning I red  your "How to manage tabbed buttons" tutorial, and  
"voyons ! mais c'est bien sûr !" I would not have to ask the list if  
I had read it yesterday ! :-))

Thanks a lot Éric for your reply
have a nice day
