Greetings, the effect you are looking for is a visual one, i.e. a set of 
"panes" that are stacked vertically and use tabs to bring one of them to 
the surface. XForms defines abstract controls which can be used in any 
modality not just visual. That said, the <switch> & <case> can be used to 
achieve the effect you are looking for. The switch element is the 
container for the mutually exclusive alternatives and the choice element 
is the container for one alternative. To enable one of the cases to become 
the "selected" case it is necessary to use a toggle action.

There is another mechanism which may be appropriate to your need that is 
what is called "model switching" and uses the @relevant model item 
property.

Regards, Roland

Subject
xforms:subpage







I search some kind of tabs in the xforms
recommendation.

I have seen that the 1.0 working draft speaks about
xforms:subpage.

why does this subpage was removed???

When i search on the net, it appears that i must use
the switch element. it seem more complicated than
subpage.

Is there a simple way to create tabs for a page in
xform?

Thanks,
Pierre-Alexandre
