I've been using 2.4.1 for a few days now, and it seems to have introduced some troublesome behavior around the Tabbox SelectEvent:

For my test, I have a standard Tabbox component, defined in ZUL. In my backing class, I've attached a listener to the onSelect event of the Tabbox.

The following is the event handling method:
public void handleTabSelection(Event event) {
Component ct = (Component)(((SelectEvent)event).getTarget());
Tab tb;
if (ct instanceof Tabbox) {//in zk 2.3.1 this block executes
tb = (Tab) ((Tabbox) ct).getSelectedTab();
else if (ct instanceof Tab) {//in zk 2.4.1 this block executes
tb = ((Tab)((SelectEvent)event).getTarget());
System.out.println("the ID of the selected tab is:

In version 2.3.1, ct would be an instance of Tabbox

In version 2.4.1, ct is an instance of Tab

Is that intentional?


P.S. It's not the only problem I'm seeing as a result of the 2.4.1 upgrade.
I'll post to the following thread regarding the problems it's causing with respect to my custom tabbox component set:

Dear Matt

You are right. The getTarget() has been changed from tabbox to tab. The reason behind is to implement the fulfill attribute of tabpanel.

Thank you
