    I have created simple Tab Bar Application, and added 3 tabs using Interface Builder. Now when I try to add 4th tab, it is adding in same row. But I wanted to add it in next row.

    I wanted to display 6 tabs in a single view like 3 tabs in first row and 3 tabs in second row.

    So my question is,

    > Is it possible to do it through Interface Builder? How?
    > Or Do I need to use 2 UITabBarController??

    I tried to googled it, but didn't get any idea about it. It's really helpful, if anyone can give me hint about it.

    Thanks in advance.

    As far as I know the tab view will only display X tabs horizontally. You might be able to make a new view with 2 tab views in it though.

    It's against Apples Human Interface Guidelines. If you've more tabs as can be displayed there will be a "more..." button. You should adhere to the HIG as they give very good tips for building great UIs. Don't add a second tab-bar!! Maybe you should rethink your GUI design?
