I assume you are referring to the ZK tabbox/tab-component and not a browser "tab" or a golden layout "tab" or any other kind of "tab" one can implement. Also please specify what you mean by "on the fly" and also state your ZK version. Ideally provide a zul example illustrating your case.

I was wondering if there is a way to double click the tab and edit it's label. Im working on an application where it's possible to create a form by adding fields ands tabs dinamically, so it would be great if I could change the tab label when performing double clicking.

you still missed to explain which kinds of "tabs" you are talking about, so I assume it's ZK's tab component (org.zkoss.zul.Tab)

here a example showing 2 ways how this can be achieved

          <label id="display"
                 value="DoubleClick to edit, ENTER to save" 
                 onDoubleClick="self.setVisible(false); edit.setValue(self.getValue()); edit.setVisible(true);"
          <textbox id="edit" visible="false"
                   onOK="self.setVisible(false); display.setValue(self.getValue()); display.setVisible(true);"/>
          <textbox value="Inline Edit" inplace="true"/>


either showing/hiding a textbox, or using a<textbox inplace="true"/>

Of course you can do the same dynamically from java code, instead of inline event listeners, used in this example ONLY for simpler demonstration purposes.
