A while back I wrote a post explaining how to wrap the tabs generated by the new cflayout tab in ColdFusion 8.

The tabs generated by ColdFusion 9 are completely different, since they use Ext version 3. ColdFusion 8 used Ext 1.

The tabs in ColdFusion 9 do not wrap by default, but they do automatically add scroll controls so you can scroll through the long horizontal line of tabs. If you’d rather have them wrap into multiple lines, this little bit of CSS will do it:

.x-tab-panel ul.x-tab-strip {
    width: auto !important;

    Thanks – My nested tabs were blowing out the page and this simple fixed saved my day!
