Description

This is a common feature in most UI toolkits (e.g. Qt has it by default) that tabs can be changed by hovering over the tab bar and then scrolling with the mouse wheel.

Scrolling down (towards yourself) on the mousewheel should change tabs to the right, and vice versa. When the last tab is reached, just stop changing tabs (don't repeat back to the start).

This feature is very high on my most hated list. I find it most annoying when scrolling a widget I actually want to scroll and get too close to the tabs of the containing tab view.

I also have a hard time imagining an actual use case for the feature. I usually just click on the tab I want to activate.

Replying to bonefish:

I'd have to second that myself, when possible it's one of the first things I disable.

Same here. Don't do that.

Fine. If anyone comes up with a real need for that feature (rather than just a "want") we can revisit this.
