Closing the Editor Tabs in BDS 2006

Developers who have used Borland Delphi 2005 will remember that little [x] on each tab, which allowed you to close each tab rather easily using the mouse. Some will be wondering where that has gone in the Borland Developer Studio 2006. Well, simply it's gone, however, you have another way, imo better way, to close them. Just as you know it from FireFox and other tabbed browser, click with your middle mouse button, or the mouse whell, on any editor tab you want to close, and it will be closed.

On the right of your tab row, you can see up to four square buttons. The scroll left and the scroll right button allow you to scroll horizontally through the list of the tabs opened. The drop list button will open a list of all opened tabs. Select any item, which you want to see and the code editor will focus on it. The last button close current will close the currently shown editor window.

One small correction. A single click of the middle mouse button closes a tab.

Nice series of blogs, btw.

Thanks, I've corrected that "oops".

More will come, that's sure and Delphi 2006 is definitely worth it ;-)
