    What have you tried that didn't meet your QUALITY criterion?

    My first thought was The Chameleon Project, but if you've already tried that and found it of insufficient quality, then you might want to clarify what it lacks, so we know what you mean by "QUALITY".

    It seems you never actually help anyone here, instead you complain about the way they ask their questions.

    I agree with chown33. Unless you tell us what is wrong with the obvious answers I don't see how your question is answerable. For example the obvious suggestion is to use the standard App Kit tab view. Have you tried that? If so what didn't work.

    I have not tried anything as I have not found anything. I need all of the methods the regular UITabView has because I need to subclass it and use UITabView's methods. I need the UITabView because I am going for a particular style.

    I mistakenly left out the Chameleon URL before. But it doesn't have UITabView, so never mind. I double-checked and I must have misread UITableView as UITabView.

    The way you wrote your original question makes it seem as if you did find ports of UITabView, but their quality was inadequate in some unspecified way.

    Please explain exactly what this "regular UITabView" is.

    You're using that name as if we should instantly recognize it, but Apple provides no such class for iOS. UITableView? Yes. UITabBar? Yes. UITabView? Not found.

    Googling for other possible providers of a UITabView class finds nothing that seems relevant, either:

    There's a C# class intended for Windows, but its name is actually UiTabView (different case).

    There's an ActionScript class uiTabView.

    There are a lot of bogus hits, too: apparently lots of people write UITabView or UITabViewController when they mean UITabBar or UITabBarController or UITableView or UITableViewController.

    Search terms used:
    UITabView site:developer.apple.com
    UITableView site:developer.apple.com

    Based on this, one possible reason you can't find anything is because you're using the wrong search term. That's just one possible explanation, since I can't tell if you really meant a UITabView class you have that somehow doesn't show up in google searches, or whether you really meant a UITabBar or UITableView. If it's a specific UITabView class that's not showing up in searches, please provide a reference to it as a URL.

    No one can help you if we don't know what you're really looking for.

    this guy has done a port, most of the methods are available i believe. Although, i think it is a strange interface for a desktop app.
