The Page class implements the individual pages or tab sheets within a Selector object, like the 'Display' and 'Syntax Coloring' tabs in the APLX Preferences dialog. A Page must have a Selector as its parent, and typically will have other controls (such as check boxes and edit fields) as its children.

The Page caption property sets the title of the tab sheet.

The order property gives the position of the Page within the Selector, in index origin 1. You can change the position by writing a new value to order. Other Pages are re-numbered accordingly. Setting a non-integer value will place the Page between two existing pages.

For a Page object, the onShow and onHide callbacks are triggered when the page is selected/deselected.

Placing images on the tabs

Under Windows and Linux, you can optionally place images on the tabs of Page controls. To do this, you need to create an ImageList object which contains all the images which appear in the Pages of a given Selector object. You then write the name of the ImageList to the Selector object's imagelist property.

Finally, you set the imageindex property of each Page where you want to display an image. This selects one of the images from the ImageList and displays it on the tab. (See the description of the ImageList object for an example.)
