custom wxNotebook Tabs

Post by mael15 » Wed Feb 27, 2013 9:29 am

hi everyone,
i want to have custom tabs for my notebook that look like this:
customNotebook.gif (1.77 KiB) Viewed 4760 times
- coloured tabs on the left side, maybe a short text inside
- two different tab sizes when unselected
- spaces between groups of tabs

i found a post in this forum that adviced against doing a custom paint event, but i am not sure if this advice might be out of date? and someone recommended wxFlatNotebook?
what do you think works best?
